A Tour Around Our Container Garden

Our yard is pretty much rocks, rocks and more rocks.  Plus, lack of good sunlight and irrigation it is very hard to have beds of flowers.  For 2 years now the most we have grown is a few herbs and tomatoes in a pot.

This year I have to say Collins has just wowed me with the potential our little plot of land has and I just have to brag. Here is one pot at the corner of our garage.
 

Here is a cluster of flowers near my two rocking chairs (not shown)  This is the first thing you see coming up our driveway. Doesn't this just make you smile???
 

Then our deck is also decked out (pun intended)

Close up shots. 

This is Lawson's pot.  She designed and planted this all by herself (Really, all by herself) I think she has a green thumb like her daddy.

Solo Pictures...

This is actually in the ground. Our neighbor gave us this lily.  I love the deep red and had to take a picture

At our old home we had TONS of flowers & seasonal color year round.  It is so nice to see some color at our "new" house that we have lived at for 4.5 years.  Thanks Collins for bringing back the color!! It is just gorgeous!!!
