The garden is a special place to many people but it isn't always nice enough outside to be in your garden. Because of this I like to bring the garden indoor by adding garden decor to my kitchen. Anything that reminds my of the garden is good, but I tend to favor flowers for their bright and cheerful color. Spring time flowers such as daffodils and tulips come in the cheerful colors that I enjoy the most. Texas Bluebells and California poppies are two others that really catch my fancy.
I know that spring flowers are a common garden theme, but I also favor non-traditional ones such as thistles. I have a bit of Scottish blood in me so maybe that is where this comes from. I usually have some early seeds starting in the kitchen window as well, but I tend to not think of them as garden decorations.
