I'm going to go ahead and apologize ahead of time.
My blog will be filled with Everything Gardening
for the next few weeks.
Gardening Fever has struck at The Grits House.
One of my fave types of gardening is container gardening.
I love that containers overflowing with lush flowers
can be moved around as needed,
but even more - I love that containers allow you to add
bursts of color throughout your garden,
even in unexpected places.
I wanted to share this bevy of gardening eye candy from
Better Homes and Gardens.
Had enough yet?
Yea I didn't think so....here's more.
I love the small sprouts of parsley sneaking
through the center.
Isn't this simply sigh producing?
Lettuces, violas and mums.
A kitchen herb garden in an old box.
How's this for a unique buffet table?
You just can't beat a pot of succulents.
One of my fave gardening tips is above. I add
herbs and lettuces all throughout my containers.
I love the texture they add, and they taste
pretty good too. :)
I really want to try this project this year.
I love these stacked pots.
This isn't a "container" picture per say, but I just had
to share. What a dream location.
A garden and an old barn.
Finally, here is one of my all-time fave
I get these free at the local grocery stores.
What do I use them for?
Lettuce and spinach and herbs.
They are the perfect size, and can be placed almost
anywhere. Plus, I love the beautiful boxes.
So, you'll have to forgive me if Grits and Glamour
gets taken over with garden talk for the next few weeks.
The fever will break soon.
(as soon as my Lowe's card is maxed out)
