Even though this past winter was really mild, the cold, dark days are always hard on this Carolina girl. I love pouring over the garden pages in Southern Living each month. Springtime brings an explosion of green, and I decided it was time to bring a little of that green home.
I started by cleaning out the containers on my front porch and trying a little thriller, spiller, filler action. I combined lavender phlox and white petunias with a tall grass-like plant.
Moving indoors, I wanted to add a little green to my mantle. I found what looked like a small peace lily (but with a pinky red flower) at IKEA. I brought it home and decided to plant it in something I already had…a glass hurricane.
And because I’m a Southern girl, I just couldn’t resist plopping a big ol’ fern in front of the fireplace to disguise the brass and glass insert that my husband wants to replace one of these days.
