A few weeks ago, my husband and I took a trip to a local garden centre, because we were on a mission to buy some flowers and brighten up our patio in time for summer. What a difference a bright tablecloth and pretty flowers can make! Even if you’re not looking to buy any flowers or plants, walking around a garden centre and enjoying all the pretty colours is so much fun. There are so many things to look at! Keep reading for some summer gardening inspiration. 🙂

We didn’t actually buy any cactus plants on our garden centre trip, but how cute are these??

Below is the philodendron plant we bought, which I love! We decided to plant two pots of colourful flowers and two pots of green plants. This is one of them, and the other is the prayer plant a few pictures up.

I am in no way a gardening expert, but having a few pots of flowers on the patio has brought me so much joy! Now the trick is keeping them alive all summer!

Do you have a garden? If not, I still recommend checking out a local garden centre and looking at all the beautiful plants they have for sale. It’s also a fun spring/summer day date idea! 🙂
