Planters

Spring and summer are often characterized by blooms. It is a good time to work on projects in the yard. This spring, I worked on several container gardens. I like the fact that these gardens are versatile, and can be easily moved around.  This project is easy, and right now, timely. I said timely because a lot of plants are on sale during spring. For my container garden project, I chose a blue point juniper and several low-maintenance blooms. I shaped the blue point juniper into a simple topiary. I picked out a number of beautiful  outdoor planters. When doing container gardening, choose your outddor planter  wisely, they bring out the best in your plant/foliage, and they add character in your yard.




I also bought an indoor planter. Added some to my collection. I am very fond of  indoor planters. I have quite  collection of indoor plants already. This time, I've decided to grace the fireplace -for the meantime- since it's spring and the fireplace isn't in use. I added some mini roses that were on sale -so many lovely colors to choose from. I got pink, yellow and  red. This year, am into planters, big time.

How beautiful it all looks. I think container gardening is a great idea so you can move you nicest flowers to whatever setting you want to show off - garden party, front porch, etc. It's really nice if they are perennials or bulbs that you can replant every year!

Your planters look beautiful! We have sixteen planters lining our driveway. They all contain roses.
