|My Fall Outdoor Pot inspired by Red Cedar|
|Cute Little Fairy Gardens at Red Cedar Nursery|
|Owls Abound at Red Cedar Nursery|
Red Cedar Gardens is a beautiful little nursery tucked away at 7895 W 183rd St. in Stilwell, Kansas. I often forget about this gem of inspiration since it's off the beaten path. I had lunch with a friend who reminded me of the nursery since I was looking for Fall inspiration for my front porch pot. The blooms of summer were looking withered and overgrown and my pot needed a makeover. I decided to venture out to Red Cedar and wasn't disappointed. One of the owners Ricki was putting together Fall outdoor displays for a class she was teaching the next day. I showed her a picture of my pot from my IPhone. By the way, the IPhone takes great pictures and is super convenient. She gave me several suggestions, and I was overwhelmed and in awe of her creativity. I love owls and had an owl statue at home so I decided to go with the owl theme. I only needed a few items: a kale plant, a pumpkin, milo (which are the cornstalk looking things) and a sprig of bittersweet. Bittersweet can be very difficult to find so I was thrilled she had it in stock.
Red Cedar offers several types of classes during the year. My friends have taken their fairy garden class and loved it. Ricki has a knack for creating beautiful arrangements by adding statues, lanterns, and other chotchkies with items from nature . I was inspired to look at my outdoor pots in a whole different light. I will definitely be returning to Red Cedar for some winter inspiration. If you live in the area it's worth the visit www.redcedargardens.com
