Need a little Garden Inspiration?

 Do you need a little garden inspiration?
While taking my daughter boot shopping in South Tampa we  visited all of my favorite shops on S. Manhattan St. Three Fabulous Shops filled with wonderful furniture and decor.
First stop was the beautiful outdoor space at Relic.
Makes you just want to go outside and plant something doesn't it?
 If you don't have a green thumb then just strategically place a floral picture for a pop of color.  
 I love this happy looking metal bird.  It just may keep the cranes out of my garden!
 I love all the pots.   They can look rather attractive all grouped together when not in use.  
Isn't this grouping wonderful.  I am less likely to forget to water a pot of plants that feeds me.  Here we have plantings of herbs and flowers and vegetables all in a pot.
So when the stress of this life gets to you and you just happen to be in Tampa, step into this sweet secret garden section called SPROUT at Relic.  We will step inside the 3 fabulous shops all a garden stones throw from each other making this destination a great place to take your girlfriends.  Make sure you bring a truck.   You are going to want something I promise!
Enjoy your weekend.

Becky, it looks like a wonderful place to shop!!

Speaking of gardens, you asked if I had any special way of taking care of bugs in my veggie garden. I usually pick them off if there are a few. I plant marigolds in my garden and it seems to keep a lot of the bugs away. But if I do get a lot, I mix dish soap and water together in a bottle and spray the plants, making sure to get the undersides of the leaves too. It works well, you just need to make sure you reapply if it rains and remember to rinse everything off when you harvest.
