Pots in May

Pots are great to brighten up dull parts of the garden. These are mostly pansies and nemesia.



They are always coming out with new colours and some are fragrant. Soon it will be time for more delicate ones.

Your garden must provide you with so much enjoyment.

Thanks for sharing a morning pick-me-up.

Cheers.

That's a great idea! I think it might be the solution for me, when I go upstate this summer to our country cottage. It's in a heavily wooded area, but we get some sunlight around the house, and it needs a bit of brightening! Thanks!

I have just caught up with the pics, and I noticed the peacock. I rented a place once that had been adopted by a stray peacock. He was noisy - but excellent company. Yes, his name was Percy.

Randall: I enjoy it more now I have Karen, the gardener to help.

Leah:in the days when we had a cottage in Yorkshire there were old stone containers by the back door which I used to plant up. And there was lovely old clematis which survived even our months of absence.

Scarlet: they are meant to be good house protectors. Whilst walking with my son recently we came upon a farm which had so many the owner said there were too many to count. You can imagine the sound effects.

They look gorgeous! I have some pansies on my balcony but they took quite a beating by the storm we had on Monday night. I think they need some TLC.

I didn't think you had 'dull' parts of your garden!

Love Pansies, yours are Beautiful. Love the Cream and Lavender ones.
Had them in my last Garden but with the Tucson heat plus little critters that hide in them . . . I will just have to enjoy yours ! No potted outside plants for me!

PI said...

Wontlet: give then some tomato feed and dead head and they will love you.

John.g : round the back facing north isn't the best spot.

Angry parsnip: we could do with a bit of Tucson heat right now. No critters here apart from snails.
