springtime pots...


I thought I'd show you how my pots are doing since I last showed them to you a couple of weeks ago...


All the spring freshness has exploded and has just about peaked...


This is such a perfect time in a Southern California garden...


The weather is in the high 70's, low 80's...


We've had a little bit of rain just about every week this spring...


My herb garden is starting to spill over which means I better start pulling out some recipes and snipping it a bit...


I love this teacup pot...


These violas have been this beautiful since December.  I've trimmed them back a couple of times and they just keep rewarding me...


I know it's not in a pot but I had to share this beautiful coreopsis...It was just a four inch pot last year and look at it now.  The Shasta daisies are right behind it...

Did someone say summer garden?  Ha...Ha...

I have a feeling it will be here sooner than we think.

Next friday I'll share the roses...just wish you could smell them, too.

Blessings,
Patty

I've linked up with Tootsie Time for Fertlizer Fridays...

I love your containers, especially the first photo at the top of the post! I haven't done a lot with containers as there is only so much time in a day! You certainly know what you're doing with them... Larry

That teacup pot is too cute. All your flowers are so pretty. I wish it was in the seventies to low eighties here. We are at 90 today which is way too early. I am afraid it is going to be a long hot summer.

Oh how lovely! I spent the morning planting flowers. I enjoyed it so much. My mom sat in a chair and watched and gave some direction. I will cherish these times. :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Your flower pots are lovely. I need to do something about mine. I plant the flowers that the rabbits want to eat in my pots.

I am so glad you have joined in on FF this week...thank you. I hope you will share with my meme again soon!
Spring is finally showing herself here and I get to start hardening off my flowers this week...so soon I will have something growing outside too!
