The birds are chirping, there are butterflies fluttering by my window, and I can see the buds of lilacs and tulips getting ready to burst open here in east Tennessee. And other than wishing the pollen count was a bit lower, I couldn't be happier!
Spring brings with it a resurgence of life, an excitement for being outside, and definitely a need for planting beautiful flowers! I just can't resist putting together a lovely, colorful pot of flowers on the table when I catch Spring Fever!
This year, I headed to my local Dollar General to do just that. I already had a lovely purple Hyacinth that I wanted to enjoy the blooms inside before I planted it outside for it to come back year after year. So I set out to find a lovely planter to make that happen!
I was surprised to quite a large selection of Lawn and Garden supplies at Dollar General. They had 3 rows of beautiful lawn ornaments and garden tending supplies for me to choose from. I ended up choosing a few extras while I was browsing – including a new pair of gardening gloves and a spade for planting.
I also bought the larger pot for a plant that was quickly outgrowing it's original container. I loved both of the planters as they brought a lot of character for the plants that would live inside.
And since the girls are just as excited as I am about the upcoming gardening and planting season, I purchase a pink Kids' Gardening Set to put in their Easter Basket. They'll love playing in the dirt right alongside me!
