Spring barometer: A first check-up of our stores

Spring has sprung! At least that’s what our calendars say. But has spring arrived in our stores? I paid a visit to our big box retailers for an answer. Here is a selection of what I found:

These galvanized watering cans are lots of fun. $16.99 at the Home Depot.

We will soon be busy organizing our outdoor plants. These pots from the Home Depot will be a good start. $8.99 and $18.99 respectively.

I love bistro sets! They are perfect for that first cup of coffee in the early morning sun. 
$149 at the Home Depot.

Spring is all about cheery accessories. How about these from Canadian Tire? 

Contemporary-style bistro set at Canadian Tire.

Sectionals are a great choice for a relaxed outdoor space. This piece is from Canadian Tire.

There is a lot of brown, beige, muted green and grey outdoor furniture in our stores. The solution if you are craving for colour? Incorporate it through pillows, placemats, table runners and seat cushions! The red really stands out in this 9-piece resin wicker patio set, $599 at Walmart.

Light blue is beautiful with beige and brown. And bright orange is just right with any shade of grey. $7.97 at Walmart. 

Zellers patio section is in full swing. This 4-piece resin wicker conversation set feels summery and fresh. $599.99. 

Nothing says spring and summer more than a nautical blue-and-white colour scheme. The cool blue hues will make your space feel fresh on warm summer days. Director Chair, Zellers $49.99.
