Happiness is....

Love planting flowers... I will plant them in anything...  I usually mix 3 flowers combinations in each planter.. 


impatiens, hosta, geraniums


I seem to be posting many pictures of the garden lately.. I love to dig in the dirt, it is therapy for my soul, and happiness for my heart!  Thank you for stopping by ... come anytime and have a glass of sweet tea with me!!

I love your washtub planters. What do you have those elevated in? It looks like it might be a vintage trash can rack. Looks great!!!!

I love the flower colors you chose.But I am in love with your caladium don't you love them instant gratification!The wash tub is a good idea maybe if I did one big pot of them it would feed the garden itch I have been having.

Just perfect! We've been out planting some more too. We've had rain so everything is happy. :)

Will those hostas winter-over in the washtubs? Or will you have to plant new ones next year? Lovely combination of colors!

Your home, fence, and zinc wash tubs are CHARMING! The little touches you've placed around your home and garden make it really sweet!

What a sweet garden! I love the double tubs--I, too, planted hostas as a focal point in a planter (do it every year) then transplant to ground in fall. Lovely inspiration from your pictures!

Hi Valarie,
How I would love to come by for a glass of sweet tea in your lovely garden! It is so pretty, I adore those wash tubs full of flowers!
I recently found an old square wash tub in the garbage, needless to say, it came home with me real fast! I haven't decided what I will do with it yet.
Hugs, Cindy

I love how you planted the flowers in those big galvanized tubs! I have one that I always use to ice down drinks when we get people together on the deck.

Cindy said...

Just beautiful! I love everything you've done. This is absolutely my kind of 'thing'. Thank you so much for sharing!
