Pretty Planters

Taken from a stroll around Oia, Santorini Island


I will never be home style savvy as Martha Stewart, but last week I did put together a couple planters I'm quite fond of. Surprisingly, they are still alive. :) So inspired by the lovely bounganvillea we saw all over Greece like in the shot above, I managed to find a Golden Bouganvillea (classified as an annual for Northern Alberta?!?) at Greenland Nurseries. The tag says zone required is 30 - 40 degrees Celsius, but for $19.99 I figured it was worth the gamble.


Above are the planters we have in front of the house- plain and simple geraniums.

And below is the bounganvillea. This is how it looks after a week. The white geraniums must not like the cold rain. :)
