Picked up my flat of pansies from Horton's. I decided on some of the big soft colors too.
This is the little viola, the one that bloomed thru the snow and ice of late Jan . and Feb. I think you may remember it was in the bricks. I dug it from where it planted itself and put into a pot. The other green stuff is pachysandra(Ground plant). I put that in for added greenery.
I only planted two containers. As I was doing this, the neighbor man yells, "We are suppose to get some snow in a couple days." Hush fellow !! LOL
This pot has two 10 cent cats, I bought for Emma at a yard sale last year. I thought she might like them in this container when she comes over.
I stuck some of the painted sticks from last year in the container along with seashells in this one.
During a walk around the yard , I spotted leafy growth on the lilac bushes.
The lilies on the west side are really growing fast with the warmer temperatures. Hope that snow coming doesn't hurt them.
You can see the green haze of the willow tree. Look at the blue skies.
This is yesterday's sunset. It was a wonderful day and had the best warm air. Ted and I sat on the porch for a short time. I told him after doing just two planting of containers I will wait till next week to finish. I will put the flowers under the covered part of the porch...even though I know pansies are hardy. The winds today may be fierce. Hope no to much.
Take care, be safe. XO
