I borrowed one of Miss Lanettes organ key flowers to add an element of junkified interest to the organic materials. Thanks, Lani!
A little faux birds nest with moss and rock just adds another layer of love.
At the top of the grapevine tree I added moss to pop the colors of the flowers and succulents. I love the combination!
My color combination for this year is...blue, yellow , deep pinks, and of course...green!
The planter itself is a combination of a thrift store plant holder and a scrapped grapevine tree. I lined the inside of the grapevine tree with coco mat. The cone shaped tree is about 3 1/2 feet tall so you wont want to fill it completely with soil. I stuffed about 2/3 of the tree with newspaper and then layered the top third with soil. This is enough soil for the plants to root and makes the planter much lighter and easier to move if need be. Just saying!
Theres nothing quite as happy as white daisies.
Im not usually a big fan of the Geranium, but I fell in love with the vibrant bright pink of theis variety.
I threw succulents in the mix because I love the texture and color. Remember if you mix in draught tolerant succulents keep them separated enough so you can give them less water than the other plants.
This is just the beginning...cant wait to get to more! I truly have spring fever.
