On second thoughts !

As I posted a blog recently,on my revamped pots,which I decoded to paint a different colour..I wasn’t happy with the stone trough..It was too ‘in your face’ stood on the wall,against the newly repainted fence. I have removed the Ivy,and planted a cutting of Fuchsia .Lena’ in it’s place..kindly gifted from Steragram ,a few years ago..


So,I just happened to have another “I’ve been thinking” moment,while Russell was giving the shed a refresher,of ’Wild Thyme ’ :o)
It is now the same colour as the shed .. what do you think?

Just looking forward to planting it up now..it won’t be getting changed again..not in the short term anyway :o)
Hopefully,some taller plants at the back,and three half moon Baskets to hang on the fence,with trailing plants..so that should help to hide the rusty old table and ladders next door ! ..for the summer at least,I don’t see it much in winter ::o)

So much better,B.......love the colour......an idea to plant could be ivy-leaved geraniums in that dark burgundy colour.

Very nice xxx

Thanks M.land..I had given trailing Geraniums some thought for the trough,it's north facing,so it only gets a little morning sun..but the wall baskets would be ok for some,as more light filters through the fence..I still have vouchers to spend :o)..even though I have lots of seedlings and cuttings waiting to get big enough to plant out..one never has enough for other pots though ! lol.

Much nicer Sandra I love that colour ,it doesn't matter how long it takes as long as you are happy with the end product... xx

Thanks girls..I'm glad it's been done.it just didn't look right,and to be honest,neither of us liked it...but the two other pots I painted at the same time,look fine in the front garden..It was a now or never moment,while Russell had the paint tin open,and a brush in his hand..did I mention he whizzed over it for me ,with two coats? )He wouldn't have been too thrilled if he had already finished for the day,and washed the brush out...Never waste an opportune moment ! Lol
I will post a photo when it's in full bloom ..:o) xx

12 May, 2015

 

Thanks Neellan.it made a difference,that he didn't like it either..no raised eyebrows or muttering at all ,when I suggested it :o)x

12 May, 2015

 

Lol,Angela..yes,quite sure I can live with this colour..seeing as I have to look at the shed in the same,which doesn't offend the eyes :o) Can you imagine if that had been the other colour instead ? yikes ! :o) x

I prefer it to Sandra the colour wont weather as qyick and will go lovely with any flowers and their green foliage.

14 May, 2015

 

Thanks 3d..that's what I was thinking too..I will have fun deciding what to plant..got lots to choose from,when the seedlings get going :o).

14 May, 2015

 

Yes hope they soon sprout up. I heard the other day our summer is going to be dull and wet, 😞 we will have to get one of those sun lamps or move abroad in the sun.

14 May, 2015

 

What will be will be .I don't take much notice of weather forecasts,3d,as they can't get it right day by day..I won't be happy if it's as cold as it's been today..I even got my gloves out again !

14 May, 2015

 

Looks good Sandra ! Does Russell ever get chance to sit down ! Hahaa! xx

14 May, 2015

 

Yes its been cold here too as the sayinv goes don t cast a clout out untill Mays is out. Yes I tend to agree the weather fore cast is seldom right.

14 May, 2015

 

As I am rather late seeing this, I trust that you haven't changed this new colour also!!

It is lovely and much as I liked it before I think this is even better.

16 May, 2015

 

Thanks Chris..and no,I haven't changed it..I think this will be permanent :o0 x

16 May, 2015
