The Urns of Renaissance

One of my favorite places to shop is a beautiful shopping village called Renaissance at Colony Park, which is located in Madison, Mississippi, just north of Jackson.

With its elegant "old world" architectural designs, luxurious landscaping, and truly awesome water features, Renaissance never fails to provide a delightful shopping experience.

In fact, I enjoy it so much that I featured Renaissance in a post last May. If you would like to read it and see my photos before you read this post, you can click here.

As I mentioned, the landscaping is absolutely gorgeous, and includes a collection of unique urns filled with seasonal flowers and plants gracing the streets and sidewalks.

I did some shopping at Renaissance yesterday, and since I "just happened" to have my camera with me, I spent a pleasant half hour taking pictures of some of the urns. Of course, this time of year (especially with the extraordinarily cold winter we've had), the plants aren't as colorful and pretty as they are during the spring and summer, but the urns themselves are beautiful, even without a profusion of flowers.

This is a picture I took last May of the urn above ...

I'm looking forward to seeing the spring landscaping at Renaissance, and hope to show you these same urns all decked out in their spring finery.

I just adore a good urn! Check out my Enter the Ranch post and see an all time classic and favorite of mine. Thanks again for sharing your photography and "part of the world."

I love garden urns, and these are some neat ones, Janie.

Will miss you while I'm computerless which I'm about to be, but I will catch up hopefully soon.

Beautiful! This reminds me of how each season has its own beauty! When the majority of the leaves are gone, you can really see the archtecture of a plant. I love the artistry of the branches. I would love to have several of those big urns around my pool!

Love the urns! It is amazing at how different each season they change. I can't wait for Spring and see green again!
