April is gone and May is here and in full swing, and that means planting annuals! We all know the age old rhyme "April showers bring May flowers",but the showers have decided to hang around a little longer and I am okay with that because my garden is looking great!
Today I am showing you a few little potted plants I have started, this is just scratching the surface as to how many annuals I plant. . . . I may have a problem!
I don't know if you have ever painted terra cotta pots before, but it is so fun. The moment you start painting it's practically dry! Here I painted both pots, the larger one I did a simple color block pattern and the smaller one I painted "Robins Egg Blue" (I know so fantastic) and mod-podged some lace to it. Super easy and took no time. AND when you get tired of that color, you can easily paint over it!
I definitely have a thing for metal/galvanized flower pots! The middle pot I got at the dollar section at Target last year and the others from garage sales. You can never have too many pots!
When designing your flower arrangement within your container remember to have different heights to add more element. I like to use two tall flowers (i.e. purple salvia) one to two medium height (i.e. petunia's) and two draping accents (i.e. Sweet Potato Vine). Have fun with it and use whatever container you find around the house or garage to display your flowers! The possibilities are endless!
