Do you ever make wish lists? I don't actually write out a list but I do keep a mental wish list. Spring is still a couple months away and I find myself wishing it was already here. I've been looking at garden magazines, Pinterest and my own travel pictures for garden inspiration.
Blue Bird Cottage, Carmel
We are excited as our annual "escape" from winter is just a few weeks away to our favorite places along
the California coast.
Pacific Highlands near Carmel
This trip is always a source of inspiration for my garden. I enjoy seeing the plant combinations and designs that gardeners create in their spaces and usually find a few things that go on my wish list!
A visit to Carmel-by- the Sea is always on my
wish list and I find so much inspiration there!
Cyclamen in pots can be easily changed
with the seasons.
Half Moon Bay is another of
our favorite stops along the way.
Last fall we strolled along Half Moon Bay's historic district with it's quaint shops. Flowers edged the buildings and store fronts along Main Street. The town was preparing for their annual Pumpkin Festival so pumpkins were everywhere!
The prettiest potted containers lined the streets and these favorites and went straight to the top of my wish list!
Precious bunny topiaries sit as greeters to the entrance of a children's store. I love the mosaic tile containers and the cute little blue bunny feet!
Gorgeous hydrangeas at the base of this small tree.
These were outside our hotel entrances.
I put this on my list too because I love it's simplicity with just pumpkins at the base. This was actually taken in Yountville last fall outside of Napa Style..one of my favorite places to shop in the Napa Valley.
What's on your garden wish list?? We have plenty of time to dream and plan
and maybe make a few of our wishes a reality!
