A Little Funk to Add Spunk!

Note: Please excuse the poor quality photos, yet again. Long, boring story I won't bother you with.

I'm certain that you know by now my love for gardening, both flowers and edibles.  Each year I make the usual trip to the nursery to fill my pots and flower beds.

I've always stuck with the safe stuff, petunias, impatiens, petunias, geraniums, petinias and marigolds. Did I mention petunias?

I love all of these flowers.

I think they're gorgeous.

Every year I go to the nursery I see these AMAZING flowers of all varieties. I always think they'd be beautiful t plant, but always reverted to my old standbyes.

I tend to have this issue in other areas of life too…. every white or black shirt imaginable. Pattern? What's that? Too scary!

Anyway, back to the flowers.

This year something struck me. I was overly drawn to the weird stuff. I wanted VIBRANCE and TEXTURE. I wanted my deck to be a conversation starter.

I think I've accomplished my goal.

I have unique.

I'm really excited to see how the flowers fill out and work together. Until then, I'll just sit back in my favorite spot and enjoy the view.

Peace, love and funky spunk.
