On to a great shop later in the week known for its creative decor. I couldn't pass up a beautiful runner for my sideboard. I have made my own previously and know this was a deal if only for the trim.
I can never pass up little birds, good luck you know, to put on my table by my living room staircase.
Continuing on yesterday to another local nursery which grows all of their own poinsettias. This is preferred to those that are shipped in from other locations because they are set to bud later, last longer and will enhance your home throughout most of the winter season.
Poinsettias, mums, ivy
Smaller cyclamen with variegated leaves
Larger flowered cyclamen
I could not ignore the Amaryllis that was blooming, think this one was called Elvas.
The Paperwhites are beautiful but you don't want to buy them like this now or you will not have blooms for Christmas!
The tall amaryllis are blooming but may not be blooming for Christmas.
Some baskets are already made up with ivy, cyclamen, schefflera and poinsettia.
Poinsettias, cyclamen and Norfolk pine
I bought a red Poinsettia for the living room.
White Poinsettia in the container on the living room coffee table
I am trying another cyclamen, smaller variety, in the dining room. We'll see how long I can keep this one alive - cool, light, moist not wet!
I couldn't pass these up, half price, and was able to plant them in the pre-frozen soil.
