Flowers From Jean's.....

There's a shop in town , called Jean's flowers. Jean and her husband Lee run the shop. They are the sweetest couple. This is one of their displays. They put flowers in any old contraption you could possibly think would plants or flowers. Once I get there, it's hard to take photos because I get caught up just enjoying all the prettiness. I did get a big potted petunia with purple and red. There's a white flower also,.but did I ask Jean what it could be..... well no. :(
Here's the planter sitting on a little table that Ted made for me. This table is made from a chunk of the cedar tree that was cut down at my mother's old house. An ice storm , many years ago,split the tree so much that mom had it removed. So I took a couple pieces for us. Now I am so glad to have it. Hope all of you have a great day. I think we are in for a rough one. xo

  4. Love that store's display.

    And love the way you display your pot of flowers, too. Great idea! Making a table, from a chunk of cedar.

  5. Beautiful flowers! I know how sentimental that cedar stump must be to you and it's a perfect display piece for your flowers.

  7. Love your little table. Sounds like a fun place to shop. You know its good when you forget to take pictures! Stay safe there. We have over 100 heat indexes today and nasty storms rolling in later. ;)

  8. Lovely flowers! How neat that the planter comes from a tree with history. We expect high temps today into the 90's. Stay safe and cool! xo Nellie

  10. Take care in the storm. I guess it has interrupted that path you were making?

  11. What a cute place and I love how they do such unusual plantings. Could that be a double ruffled petunia (the white one)? Gorgeous planter! xo Diana

  12. Your flowers are beautiful. How wonderful that you have the tree trunk table. I bet you think of your mom every time you look at it. It's the little things in life that make us smile and bring us fond memories

  13. Very pretty. I think I'll visit Jeans when I go to Horton's in a couple of weeks. That little stand is cute, but if you have a doily that you don't much care if it gets dirty ( or even ruined) it'd be cute under that planter. Too bad I threw out my plastic ones. Darnit.

  14. I was just browsing through your blog and it seems our taste in flowers and primitive decor are quite the same. My husband and I have a seasonal retail greenhouse business in a rural part of Eastern Ky. I plant old buckets, boxes, chicken feeders, lots of granite ware. My motto is, if it holds soil, I will plant it. Our most popular planter is chicken wire in the bottom of an old, old ladder back chair. We sell about 30 of those a year.
