Gardening at Last!

Winter  finally went away, so I went crazy at the greenhouse buying flowers and veggies to plant. Then it rained and rained and rained. Today the sun finally came out and I am getting some of that stuff planted! I thought I would share some pics with everyone.

The front steps of the house:

I love using random containers to plant in!

The other side of the door:

My hubby surprised me with a half whiskey barrel planter for Mother's Day:

I love Gerber daisies! You can't tell from this picture, but these have two-toned petals.

I found an old bike basket awhile back and thought it would be great straddling the railing on my deck:

More Gerber's!

This year I planted all of my herbs in a metal wash tub:

It's so nice to keep them all together like that. Here's some shade lovin' pots:

Look at those gorgeous double impatients!

I also planted a pot for the sidewalk in front of my office:

It might look like some of these pots are a little sparse now, but come another couple of weeks they will be filled out and overflowing! I haven't got everything planted yet, so be sure to check back in a couple of days to see the rest of the beauties!

Don't settle for dull, live a refinished life!

*Planning to share at:
Metamorphasis Monday;  Time To Sparkle Tuesday Linky Party; Trash to Treasure Wildly Original Linky Party; Transformation Thursday; What have you redone?; Fridays Unfolded; Shabbilicious Friday.


  1. I love your improvised flower pots! So pretty on your front steps. Great ideas!
    Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
