Pots, Pots & More Pots

I ventured South last weekend to Garden Essentials located in Turlock, which is the mecca for affordable ceramic pottery in the Central Valley. I was on the hunt for some pots for my patio makeover, and boy did I go to the right place!

The place stretches for what seems like miles (in actuality it's probably a couple of acres. . . ) and is filled to the brim with pots, pots, and more pots! These affordable gems are imported from China and Vietnam and come with easy-on-the-wallet price tags. In fact, a large majority of their pots are priced between $5 - $100!

Have you purchased any pots at a hardware or gardening store lately? I have, and they're not cheap! I paid half of what I would have paid at Lowes and came home with some really unique items!

All of the ceramic pots above were under $29!

Here's a peak at a corner of the patio where the new foo dog statues resides next to a potted Japanese maple tree. (We got the foo dogs from Garden Essentials as well!) Notice the surf board?! I'm still deciding if I should hang it on the wall, or just leave it propped up. 

We have a large variety of succulents. . . 

 I love me some birds of paradise! Lets just keep our fingers crossed these decide to bloom sometime!

This adorable little pot was only $4.99!

More succulents. . . 

The back patio wasn't the only spot to get a little face-lift by means of new pottery and plants. . .

The front of the house got a little love too! We potted a bougainvillea in a cobalt blue pot and I think it looks gorgeous. It adds just the right amount of color and curb appeal that we needed.
