There are so many bright, colorful things to photograph in garden centers in spring in Wisconsin. Not only the flowers, but the containers. These pink beauties are called Common Thrift. Not the prettiest of names, but they sure add a bright spot of color.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

    Lovely and bright colorful shot of the pink flowers in the blue containers with that lovely green foliage! Time for me to visit the garden center.

  2. They are pretty! It’s nearly that time here, too. I’ve been working like a rented mule the past few days creating a new flower bed for some Day Lillies that should be available in a few more weeks. Wish us luck!

  3. Looks like Spring.

  4. Me too!!!!!

  5. Hah, very nice.
