I’ve long admired the work of potter and gardener Frances Palmer. Her one-of-a-kind handmade ceramics have beautiful, organic shapes that can stand alone, but are perhaps even lovelier when graced with spring flowers.
With February (and Groundhog’s Day) just around the corner, the countdown to spring is officially on (we’re putting the final touches on Canadian Gardening‘s April issue as we speak), and I can’t wait to fill my containers and vases with pretty spring blooms.
Aren’t the whimsical bud vases delighful? I love how they’re filled with a few blush-coloured tulips and purple muscari.
Frances’s hand-thrown terracotta planters are swoon worthy, as well. They have a wonderful old-world quality to them. Similar to what Frances has done here, I’d love to plant up a few and gather them together on a rustic wooden garden bench.
