Modern White Planters

By Kate Riley March 13, 2017

Raise your hand if you’re over winter? Yep, me too. With the time change I’ve got a full case of spring fever, and this week my focus is on plants and flowers. I started some little seedlings in pots in anticipation of a small garden this year.

With the time change, I was feeling restless and started making a to do list of spring chores. It quickly overwhelmed me so I went for a walk in the sunshine, and later stopped buy the local store to buy a few spring flowers, they always cheer a space up. I have a love for white shapely things and just bought two faceted vases at Michaels, I like vessels with a texture or an interesting geometric shape.








I’ve managed to keep a travelers palm alive for a few months, it’s hiding in a plain planter on a stool behind the chair, but since it’s thriving, I’m going to let it come out from the shadows and buy it a new plant stand.



I found a few good looking modern or shapely white planters online, below are more favorites.

Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley March 11, 2017

Finally it’s a beautiful weekend here in Sonoma County. The sun is out so I’m off to the seed store to pick out a few greens to plant this season, it’s time to get those seedlings started! I’m meeting a friend for a wine date later today and tomorrow who knows, perhaps an afternoon spent among the mustard flowers at a winery. Spring in the Wine Country is always lovely. As long as the sun is shining I know I’ll be outdoors.

Favorite links from the week below:
