After Fridays surprise snow dump, I finally get round to my first customer Container. For KIK in Vaughan. Yeah it’s Sunday. But the Birds were singing, the Sky was Blue, the temperature was around 9 while I was creating this…warmed up to a very nice 16 degrees. A very nice way to spend a Sunday!

There’s a mixture of Real and faux here. Once the bulbs die down, there will be some colour left to get us past May and into the summer containers. ☀️

To Faux or not to Faux???

The weather appears to be getting warmer…I hope it’s not a false alarm like the other week.
One week sunshine and Spring, the next we have snow and freezing temperatures. But ey! It’s Canada. We have to expect anything!
From time to time, I mention about using faux branches and flowers for help in short season containers.
Some people like the help of added colour and some people don’t.
In the photos displayed here. We have one container “au naturel”…I do like it this way. I think it’s pretty, but these containers are placed a little way from the street and you can see from the photo with the added branches and flowers that it makes quite a difference. It also helps give the containers a punch of colour, for when the bulb blooms have faded.
