  2. A nursery visit always raises my spirits, especially when adding fresh flowers to a space. My favorite joy givers is sunflowers, but your arrangement is lovely.

  3. While I am all about the water saving perennials in the beds around our home, I am also a huge fan of the seasonal color pop afforded by annuals on our front porch. I feel the investment is worthwhile even though the results are temporary. Money can't buy me joy, but it can buy me flowers, and they are a pretty close second....

    1. Absolutely, Deb. My perennials, while beautiful, tend to be of the small flowering variety. I never seem to be able to gather enough for a vase full of flowers. A handful of mums did just the trick...instant joy in the house!

  4. I used to buy cut flowers, to brighten up inside. Now, I usually get a plant. It usually lasts longer and I can stick it in the ground when the blooms are gone.

    Hmmmm....I might just need a trip to the nursery.

  9. I love your interpretations with your camera and your cropping, Cat. So dreamy. Simple pleasures, indeed.

    1. Thank you for your sweet compliment, Plant Postings. The cropping look that you mention is achieved with a macro lens. I use a 105mm. I try to switch and use other lenses to mix it up but I always end up going back to my tried and true 105. Nothing beats that lens for me.

  10. And coincidentally where I was today too - although I didn't find what I was looking for (mums). What a reward you got from your trip - and nicely presented.

    [as for my drive-by shootings, I had to take them from behind the wheel (yes, I was careful) because stopping for photography isn't tolerated too well when we're headed south ;>) ]

  13. I haven't been to the nursery since I've been busy with fall chores. After viewing this, I definitely need to go!

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
