Bringing Spring Home

I just decided the other day that I wasn't going to wait this year until the third week in March to begin thinking spring!  I am doing the meteorological spring which begins March 1st. As I have said before faux and real together make a wonderful combination.

Pottery Barn has always been a favorite for specific accessories but their store this season resembles a conservatory.  I do not have a Pottery Barn home but I have to admit they have made their faux greenery and seasonal decor irresistible!

As I strolled through their store I had a difficult time dealing with reality, smelling plants, touching plants circling displays like a stalker in search of a genuine spring.

Basil and Rosemary

Faux Basil
I could almost imagine myself cooking with this!

Life-Like Fruits

I have the pears, but I actually had to pick up the lemons and feel them to convince myself they weren't real.

My birds go through every season and bring good luck to a home.

I couldn't believe the displays this year, branches laden with blossoms, mossed pots even speckled birds eggs.

Mossed Pots



Apple Blossom

There are many other branches, yellow, bright pink and just plain green.

I brought a little bit of spring home, too expensive to have a full blown spring

It is amazing what a little "out of season" experience will do for one gardener's psyche!
