Ginger Valley Sign

Every Saturday, I share my weekly Artist Date.

Ginger Valley Front

This week’s Artist Date is appropriate to the season…a visit to a nursery.

Ginger Valley Fountain

I went to a local nursery, Ginger Valley. We’re fortunate to have many fabulous independent garden centers in our area.

Ginger Valley Water Feature

Whether you garden or not, nurseries, particularly this time of year, are beautiful and inspiring.

Ginger Valley Pond

Ginger Valley has many different areas…indoor plants, outdoor plants, ponds, gardening tools, decorations, bird feeding supplies and on and on.

Ginger Valley Bright Flowers

The color is incredible.

Ginger Valley Butterfly Garden

You could wander around for hours.

Ginger Valley Outside

I can’t even imagine how crazed I would be if I had a green thumb.

Ginger Valley Bench

Fortunately, since I’m not much of a gardener, I was able to keep my wits about me…but just barely.

Porch Pot

I had an ulterior motive for taking my Artist Date at a nursery. I wanted to put together a porch pot.

Porch Pot Detail

As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m not a gardener, so I was incredibly pleased with myself for putting this together. I used Hort Couture Under The Sea ‘Electric Coral’ Coleus in the back, Hort Couture ‘Gold Nuggets’ Lamium in the front, two Kimono Red Celosia one on either side of the coleus and four Bravo White Petunias running through the center of the pot. I will probably have killed it this three or four weeks time, but today, it looks stunning.
