Garden Section is my Get Away

The garden section of hardware stores is one of my favorite mid week activities. I’ve done a lot of traveling all over the world and this simple pleasure feels like a private escape without having to check my luggage.

It’s a great place for kids to stretch their legs and enjoy some roaming around time. (Or just make weird scary model faces?)

I think these hanging succulents are the perfect size for a kitchen window or clustered together at different heights in an empty corner.

As more and more shoppers get hip to the modern decor style, even big box chain stores like Lowes, OSH, and Home Depot have great choices for landscape and garden accessories.

This modern outdoor fountain is pretty cool, as far as fountains go. I’m not a big fan of water features unless they are done cleanly, subtly, and not cheesy. I can count the ones I’ve like on one hand and they’ve always been very pricey and custom built. I guess I lucked out at Lowes today finding this one in the corner of the garden section. But this $500 purchase will have to wait until the faux grass is done on the balcony & play area in the backyard.
