Memorial Day Gardening

Home Depot was really crowded today!  I think everyone had my same intentions--get some flowers to spruce up the yard for summer.  And boy did they have the blooms out in full array.  There was most any kind of flower you could imagine blooming and ready to be re-potted or planted in your own personal space.  I could have really done it up right, I tell you.  But I kept my self control and got out of there only spending about $25!  From that I was able to pot 2 large planters and 2 hanging baskets.  I have them out on my deck and it brightens up the surroundings considerably!  Along with the hummingbird feeder and the modest garden down below, I think that my summer planting urge has been quelled for awhile unless I see a really great sale later on this summer!

What pretty flowers! My only problem with gardens is getting out and taking care of the weeds. I love to plant things and see them grow.

That's why I think I'm going with pots and planters. I don't have great luck with things in my yard!

LOL!
It must be in the air; I just did the same thing, only with herbs .. and I'm renting. At least now my porch smells like basil, rosemary and all manner of yummy, fresh Summer things instead of swamp gas.

I think potted plants, especially hanging ones, make a FANTASTIC addition to porches! Yours are just lovely! Nice work!

The basket looks gorgeous. I know just what you mean - it's really hard to not buy every pretty flower in sight at those stores!

Your flowers are lovely, Helena. Sorry to hear about the funeral, too. Seems like we've been going to more and more services like that lately :(
