Springs first planter.



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. ☀️


First day of Spring…not here!

Sunrise n Snow!

Well. It’s supposed to be Spring and I know, this year more than any I remember, people are soooo desperate for some nice warm weather. Well today, here in Ontario, we got some more snow. Just a little though. Nothing to worry about!

Because it’s Spring today, it should be about now that people castaway their outdoor winter decorations and make way for a new colour palette. I’m not sure how many people will have jumped on board with that….certainly not me. My Boxwood Wreath had seen better days about 2 months ago. Now, dried out and very pale looking, they will have to stay put as they are frozen in my planters and won’t be coming out of there any time soon…Honestly. They did look good when I did them!

After Snow storms, snow and wintry weather!

Don’t be so discouraged. The weather will break, the temperatures will raise, the sun will shine and the bulbs will dare to poke their way up through the ground…and then it’s time to get busy…none of this lolling around, watching TV in front of the fire. There are things to be done.

I love the days were I can go out and tear peoples winter planters apart and make up the new creations. Each season is exciting, but I think the turn from winter to Spring is the most exciting. I’m fed up of looking at Red berries, red lanterns, Red mesh…Bring me some Forsythia and spring bulbs!!
