Potted Up! {Summer}

At our home, new potted creations come with every season. Okay, often I skip Spring and move right into Summer and this year was no different. I like annuals for splash of colour, while our garden bed is filled with hardy, low maintenance perennials in varying shades of green.

I have always loved container gardening. Perhaps it’s because my mom always had potted annuals, in our front and back yard as I was growing up. Every year we had new colour combinations, and by mid July, every pot was in it’s full glory – so pretty.

This week my mom and I potted up a little something for my front step and I’m so pleased. I can’t wait to see this pot once the Miracle Grow kicks in!

I needed a new pot and wanted something a little different in the way of annuals so first, I headed to a nearby garden center for inspiration. Here’s my snapshots…

I have yet to complete pots for the backyard. Do you do any type of seasonal gardening? Do share & enjoy the weekend. Happy Mother’s Day to all those celebrating.

Have a peek at some of my earlier creations… Summer, Fall and Winter.


So pretty! Gardening is something I really hope to do more of in the near future!
