Winter storm “Juno” is throwing down a white blanket of snow across the northeast. Nothing cures winter blues like shopping for your garden. I’m sharing some of my favorite garden accessories for the spring. Grab a cup of tea, bundle up in a blanket and let’s go shopping!
Brass is the new black! These brass lanterns from Terrain hit just the right note. Classic style is updated with a sleek metallic finish. So what if brass showed up everywhere in 2014…it isn’t going anywhere! The style of this lantern allows it to fit into many garden settings and it’s not a run of the mill lantern! Purchase here
If the Glove Fits… A chef wouldn’t prepare his finest meal with dull knives and an artist’s painting would suffer from use of inferior brushes. So it’s only natural that a gardener needs a perfect pair of garden gloves in their tool bag. Kill two birds with one stone and pick up a pair of these gloves from the New York Botanical Garden. Not only are you supporting a fantastic garden in New York City, your hands will also thank you for this one. Purchase here
Something Missing? At 63″ tall, this piece available for purchase at Restoration Hardware adds a visual punch to an outdoor garden or patio. It’s the perfect object to fill a blank space in need of a focal point. Put it somewhere unexpected to create a sense of surprise in the garden. It could be partially hidden by a plant, or around the corner from a wall….get creative! As the Zinc weathers, the patina will only add to the piece.
