the flower nursery

One of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon is walking through a flower nursery and looking at all the flats of flowers. My mother has been working at a flower nursery for as long as I can remember, so being surrounded by plants/flowers is somewhat comforting and makes me feel close to home.




*Check out that pineapple thing above my head!

One of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon is walking through a flower nursery and looking at all the flats of flowers. My mother has been working at a flower nursery for as long as I can remember, so being surrounded by plants/flowers is somewhat comforting and makes me feel close to home.

Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ve acquired my mother’s green thumb because I seem to have the hardest time keeping houseplants alive. I’ve never had the space to have an outdoor garden, so maybe my luck will change when I attempt a real garden. Let’s just say indoor plants hate me and I tend to go through them pretty quickly.

On Sunday I was in my normal Sunday Slump, doom and gloom mood and the boy did a really good job at filling the afternoon with things I really love to do. We visited the loop and spent a good amount of time at a thrift store where I found a perfect vintage white knit top and a denim sun dress. On our way home we stopped at Bayer’s Flower Nursery to check out there succulent selection. Succulents are my only real hope at keeping something alive, so I thought I’d restock. The nursery was bustling ¬†with weekend warriors and you could tell everyone was excited to bring their backyards to life. I came home empty handed, but really enjoyed soaking up the sun and smelling all the greenery/dirt. So refreshing!

Are you guys planting a garden this year?

*wow! Who knew I could ramble about plants.

  1. Lovely! My mum used to take me to buy the year’s annuals from the flower shops every year and then we’d help her plant them. Now, I have no garden on my boat and it does make me a bit sad. Problem is even if I wanted to grow flowers in pots on the deck, I couldn’t: my boyfriend gets dreadful hayfever, and my best friend is seriously allergic to bee stings! drat!

    I can dream though!

  2. I too always manage to kill my plants. I had some for a while but I somehow forgot to water them for 2 wks. whoops! :/ and then I got a pretty hydrangea from a coworker and left it at work over the wkend and came back to it completely wilted. I feel a little hopeless right now. :[

  3. I have a succulent I keep on my desk at work, it’s great because it doesn’t need that much sun or frequent watering. And I love having something green and alive to keep me company!

  4. I am working on my little plant babies indoors until it’s warm enough to make my outdoor garden. I read a lot about taking care of them, but got the best advice from people that have had gardens their whole lives. They have the best tips!!
    I could wander the plants all day, too– I hear ya, sister!

  5. I love these photos! My mother loves plants too. She is all about the cactus lately. She put them all over the house and adopts plants from other people who can’t keep them alive (like me) hehe.

    ps. I think it is easy to ramble about anything really lol.

  6. I happen to have quite the green thumb. Unfortunately, I am currently limited with where exactly I can plant things. Right now in my garden window I have some Rosemary, a few Cacti and some Blue Bachelor Buttons are just starting to sprout. I love walking though the nursery. I always feel relaxed there. Beautiful pictures as usual!

  7. I’m with you – I never seem to be able to keep plants alive. I’ve brought a vine to school more than once (one of those ones that is supposed to be practically indestructible). They never last long.
