Before and after


These are my patio pots in early spring and now -despite the rain, wind and low temperatures we’ve been having!
Unless you take an actual picture you don’t realise how much they’ve grown. Like with my boys!!

So pretty! My Other Half is the gardener but I have become interested in container gardening recently. The beauty is one can move these pots around and make use of plants in full bloom to hide areas!!

Found an excellent book on Container Gardening . "The Container Garden" by Stephanie Donaldson & Peter McHoy. Colourful, informative, lovely paper! A pleasure to look through.

Yes sorry guys, when I posted them they were both the right way up but for some reason they rebel and change configuration at random!

When you look back you can see the difference. Your pots look very pretty now :)
