I never get tired of seeing your lovely container plantings Kathleen! :) I like the combination of the pedestal with this container. They look like one unit. Black & Blue Salvia is one of my favorite plants at the moment.


I love seeing your containers. I do wonder if you spend 8 hours a day watering;)

Really, you do a wonderful job of combining interesting plants in unusual containers.


I agree with Marnie, you do a wonderful job of combining plants. And I love that you use unusual and standards in such an interesting way. Also, what a great idea to find a pedestal and spray paint it to match your container. Always inetersted in see others' ideas for containers.


No, I am not sick of seeing your containers! I need to incorporate them into my garden. Now that is a gorgeous blue salvia!

You've been very inventive with your containers and plantings. The asymmetric arrangement works well in that location, a pretty combination of flowers and foliage.

No one is getting tired of seeing your containers! You've done a beautiful job with them. I really like the way you spray painted your pedestal black... very dramatic! :-)


Thanks everyone for all your comments and compliments on my container arrangements (and for reassuring me that you're not tired of seeing them).
To Marnie ~ chuckling at the thought of me watering 8 hours a day!! Because this summer was so hot and dry I did water everyday but it only takes me about 30 minutes. It's an enjoyable task for me. I do it late in the evening or early in the morning. I also try to use larger containers (all with a saucer) to ensure they won't dry out as fast.
