A Few Pretty Things!

So in the spirit of welcoming spring, I decided today would be a great day to price mulch and some edgers for the front flower bed. We first stopped off at the NEX(Navy Exchange) here on base and found some really cute edgers that are imitation stone and some half-way decently priced mulch. Moving on to our local Wal-Mart, I was a bit shocked to not find any mulch at all, but I was caught by the profuse array of colors and types of flowers they had in stock. Seeing as I had my camera I just had to grab a few quick shots of ones that I liked.

These(on the left) were my favorites because of their vibrancy and texture.
I liked these because they matched the color of the flowers I was wearing in my hair today.
My camera couldn't quite capture the true deep red of these flowers, but they were breathtakingly ruby.

I had the same color issue with these roses, but I just had to have a picture of how beautiful they were.

Seeing as I am a coffee addict and a tea fanatic, I thought these planters where just the thing to go next to my front door.

I'd like to check out a couple of the local nurseries first before purchasing any flowers, but I have to say that I am impressed and thoroughly captivated by the promise these pictures above show for the spring to come!

Okay, so now I must have one of those coffee cup planters! So whimsical, I love them, they'll make such a happy pot of flowers. Were these at Wal Mart too?

Yes Ma'am they sure were! Oh I saw them and knew I'd have to get at least one!
