If I Only Had a Green Thumb!

When we are on vacation there is always one place that is a must stop to shop, Wildflowers. It is such a beautiful shop not only for their great little garden and lake living inspired gifts but for the amazing garden and landscaping.

I love the lawnmower on the roof! Classic!

I would love a small fence like this iron one that was, of course, painted white and left to naturally weather.

I am not sure what these are called but they reminded me of lily pads and would look great in my garden!

Ferns are my favorite!! They are so simple and elegant and I am always in love with the way that the mix the ferns in with other plants with various shades of green.

They have so many garden ornaments. This blue gazing ball caught my eye..probably because I love the color blue!

As you make your way towards the back of the garden they have this beautiful pond and waterfall. It is so peaceful to listen to the water surrounded by all this greenery.

They also had these hydrangea hybrid flowers. They almost looked like a cross between Queen Ann's lace and hydrangeas. They were so feminine.

The fence made from branches would also look great in my garden. What a clever idea!

If I only had a green thumb, or even a light green thumb, this is the garden that I would choose. The ferns along with various shade loving plants and these beautiful hydrangea hybrids would be ideal for me. So simple, yet so beautiful!

What a fun place that looks! I'm the same, I wish I had a green thumb but when I actually get something to grow it's usually a fluke!
