Finally it is really Spring! So many snippets of inspiration come at you every day. Head on out to the local nurseries,
That nice arrangement you just saw in the store window reminds you that purple (salvia) and hot pinks (geramiums) will look great together.
Keeping a dedicated notebook on your desk is the best way to remember what you saw. Use your cell phone camera or tuck a small notepad and pen in your glove compartment or purse so you don't forget a fabulous plant's name you just saw at the nursery. Write down the botanical name of course since they have very different growing patterns.
I make note of colors that work great together and prices. Inspiration can come from the oddest places. Although a large cascading waterfall is impressive it would look out of place on my property BUT I noticed and made note to place a colorful rock that can be seen where the small water feature splashes in my little pond.
Inspiration is from whatever you see that pleases you. Adapt it for your personal pleasure!
