Fun Garden Shopping

Are you preparing for THE storm?   I figure while I still have power I might as well shop….right?   I’ve been noticing lately that more retailers are offering design savvy garden related products. These are some of my favorites.

marks and spencer garden products by paul hervey brooksPerhaps one of the stores I miss the most from my London days is Marks and Spencer.  (the grocery store and the pre-made meals are the best!).  M&S is has some fun products that I am coveting….and while they all carry a sophisticated style, Designer Paul Hervey-Brooks is also conscious of little friends in the garden who also need special homes and care.  There are insect houses, hedgehog houses and cane toppers that also do double duty as a bug home — and the tiered container is great for balcony gardeners.
