Photo Hunt: Candy

eye candy:

something purely aesthetically pleasing, that is, pleasing to the senses. can be a person, a film, a sunset, a flower, or anything else you can see.

Bedding plants are eye candy for me. I love going shopping for plants then figuring out how to combine colors and textures into gardens and planters.

I am going to do a yellow, orange, white combination with some of these plants.
I have a bare area that will be filled in with these snapdragons.
When it comes to shopping some women can spend hours and hours trying on and buying shoes. Eye candy for others are diamonds and fancy jewelery. I can spend hours and hours shopping at plant nurseries.

Now this is my kind of eye candy!

These images were captured at Ritter's Nursery in Spokane last week-end. If you are an inland empire blogger be sure to take a trip to this nursery. It is well worth the trip.

For other photo hunts on candy go here.


  1. Great shots...I love plants

  2. great catch for today's theme... mine's up too hope you can drop by...

  3. Beautiful, and far less fattening than some of the others.

  4. I like your candy.

  5. I would rather spend time in a nursery then anyother kinda shop........

    When I was first divorced it was over a year before I could go to a nursery, maybe its cos in the divorce the X also took away our plant nursery business that I had helped to build.... oh well...

    and then when I started going to other nurseries with me maties I would drive them mad cos I would know all the names of the plants and as we would walk around I would automatically dehead any dead flowers or leaves LOL....

    I am at my happiest in life when I am amongst the plants at a nursery.......


  6. That's my kind of eye candy too. It's fun seeing how quickly you are moving into spring after the long winter. I know it probably doesn't seem quick to you but it does in terms of visiting here.

    You know, before I decided to go mad this afternoon, I thought about taking a picture of garden stuff and calling it soul candy.

    Don't you just love this time of year?

  8. that is exactly what we did this weekend. We went nursery hoppin'
    (It's a very expensive hobby - but oh so very fulfilling)

  9. Ha! My kind of eye candy too. Give me plants over clothes and shoes any day! :)
