Spring has sprung…and not a moment too soon!! I have long time friends arriving this week for a visit and I want everything to look its best. Inside and out! But, first impressions start at the curb, so I am particularly excited about how our Spring pots have turned out.
For years, I’ve worked with Cindy Mills of Gardens. She and her team of trained gardeners have helped me lovingly care for our landscaping so that it compliments our house to its fullest potential.
Pots are essential for creating color and drama when Mother Nature hasn’t provided it. My tulips won’t bloom for a few more weeks and my pear trees are on the verge of exploding….but not yet.
So, we crafted a plan that would work on it’s on, provide a nice backdrop for the tulips and then stand alone once they have wilted.

Gorgeous Elizabeth! Spring has definitely sprung over at your home….loving what you have done, the planters are sensational. Enjoy the visit with your houseguests!

Storybook is absolutely the right word to describe the look you have created. I love all your plantings and your guests are sure to feel welcomed by the pretty forsythia greeting them. My front door is black lacquer also and I am about to jump over to the wreath company and order a spring green one for myself!

you have the prettiest front and back door plantings yet, by the time the wet and the wind have gone I want some COLOR, a few tulips thrown in there would stop my heart.

Your home is so beautiful all dressed up for Spring!! I am holding out for Mother's Day to put out my flowers but wish I had a pop of brightness now – what a smart idea to use forsythia! Enjoy your weekend with your friends – no doubt you have come up with all sorts of amazing things to do! Hugs to you, sweet Elizabeth!!
