Gardening
#11
I have just moved and don't really have much of a garden to work with any more, (certainly no grass)

I have put some tubs of plants out though to add a splash of colour. I'm using my phone at the moment, but when I'm on the pc later I'll add some pictures.

Smile Will look forward to pics PurpleStar! I was musing to myself what a positive occupation gardening is- over a life time we may have tiny to large gardens but whatever the size when we walk past or come home to a recent planting or cheerful colours it reinforces our positive outlook and life affirmation!

It's getting there 
Still a few more bits I want to do, but at least it looks a little more cheery out there

Hi PurpleStar well done  Smile that looks like quite a tricky spot to plant with a lot of shade- the violas and fuschia should be happy.  I was trying to think of other annuals which might suit- impatiens [busy lizzie] and nasturtiums should work and climbing nasturtiums could give you some height. If theres a sunny spot a wigwam of sweet peas would be nice for fragrance. Love the owl!  Smile

Those little pink tri-pot planters are too cute. Those would be perfect for me to see if I can grow anything.

It is a little. It does get the sun of an afternoon, but nowhere near as much as the other side.
I love busy lizzies. I did wonder about Sweet Williams too as they don't mind light shade. I do rotate the pots a little sometimes to get them all a little more light. Only thing that doesn't work for is the lavender as that is in a brick built pot that was already there. Having said that, it is doing really well now, and we've even had bees visiting. Turns out the green astroturf bit the other side of the gate is ours too, so I would like to do something with that as well.
The owl is cute isn't he. I now have some little wooden rabbits in a couple of the pots too.

They are wonderful aren't they. I was so pleased when I found them (the round ones are from the same place), as they are so much more exciting than the plain orange/brown ones). Even before the plants flowered, just having the coloured pots there made a world of difference.
