This is what I bought when I was with my daughters and granddaughters at the Peacock Perch. I do not think it's a toy, I think it seems more like a promotional gift. But I fell in love with it and knew I want it to hold flowers.
So this morning, I put a paper doily in the back and a pot of pansies.
I got myself a flat of pansies/violas and spikes. This afternoon I will be planting in my containers.
When I got home with my flowers Ted had mowed the yard. He is checking the oil here. I told him he needs to get that grass off the mower deck. Well the lawn looks good and green. I will have the porch containers done later and that is a good feeling.
Hope all of you are having a nice day. XO
I love your bright blue truck. I always think they look sweet in home decor. Love a little Christmas tree in the back or American flag! You'll have such fun with this. Sweet hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, Thank you for those cute ideas. I will have to remember the flag. .Love that. I got some of the pansie out and I need a few more filler things for the bigger containers. Blessings, xoxox,SusieDelete
I like the truck I'm sure the flowers will be nice all soReplyDelete
Hi Laura, So glad you stopped by. I did most of my containers. I always just get some nice sticks from the yard and paint them for an accent color in my pots. I even paint some container..many times. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I am so jealous that you are able to be planting already! We are still weeks away from outdoor containers. Darn it!ReplyDelete
LOVE that little truck. That is the cutest thing!!!! Hope you have a great day, Susie- xo Diana
Diana, I surely do hope I have not jumped the gun here. I almost put those pansies out three weeks ago..so glad I wanted..we had the hail one day remember. I do love this little old truck so much. Diane said I could put a little flag in it and a Christmas tree. See, it is worth having. I hope you guys get some warmer Spring weather ...once you get about 3-4 days of that, things will be so green. The trees are flowering . Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love your little blue truck. It is so cute with the flowers in the back. Too early for them here, but I can't wait to get my flat of pansies to plant out in the yard.ReplyDelete
Kathy, I hope you can plant soon. It is just a good feeling this evening knowing I have some of my containers done. Now ....if I have just got too far ahead of myself on this...know what I mean girl. Blessings to you and Joe. xoxo,SusieDelete
Wow, i love your ideas. I may try to do some of those myself if I can find anything around here. Last year I put some pansies in a pair of old boots. I'm glad it's finally getting pretty enough to plant flowers. We're getting lots of rain this week and it's kinda come to a halt. Hugs and blessings, xoReplyDelete
Hi Susie, I have planted hens/chicks in some old work boots before. I need to do that again. It was cloudy almost all day today. Once Ted and I got all our chores around here done...we went to town for an ice cream at the DQ. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
L O V E the truck.ReplyDelete
Hi Debby. You know we could use our kids toys for decorations. LOL. I remember my daughter Karen had a true-value panel truck when she was young...wonder where that is now. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Your truck is charming,Susie...I love the bright color...goes so well with brights like pansies!ReplyDelete
Hi Linda, I thought the yellow pansies were perfect in that blue truck. I really like how it looks. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Thank you Linda. I like the yellow pansies with that blue. Blessings, xoxo,SusieReplyDelete
I'm so glad you are having weather for working with flowers! I love pansies, and they keep blooming so very well - until it becomes too hot. xo NellieReplyDelete
My last Pansies lasted a long time. Nellie, I hope it warms up a bit more there. I like warm weather, but not hot...I am not a hot weather person, I feel over heated when it's too steamy. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie, That truck is perfect for flowers! I love it!ReplyDelete
Thank you Mildred. It did turn out nicely. xoxo,SusieDelete
That is a cute truck! Perfect for your little flowers! Enjoy it! Blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Hi Cindy, Thanks for coming by. I really do like the way this truck looks with the yellow pansies. xoxo,SusieDelete
sweet little truck.. I would have wanted to buy that also.. and filling it with flowers is also what I would have done! Youre lucky you can play with flowers already. It'll be a while here still.. mid june probably. Have a great day!ReplyDelete
Viv, I hope you can get into your flower gardens before June. I may be getting ahead of myself here...sure hope not. But pansies are a hardy little flower. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
oh my gosh, that Ford truck is too cute, Susie. You know, I love those old trucks (the Chevys as well). The yellow pansies really stand out against the blue truck. What a clever idea, Susie.ReplyDelete
Sheri , Chevy trucks are my favorite. LOL . But this was too cute to pass up. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
they are adorable. I know the girls will love them.
But you're not a Ford person! lolReplyDelete
Kathy, This truck is almost the color of Mark's truck he had. It was so cute...and cuter with the yellow flowers. I have an old toy truck that used to be Rich Sottong's...I need to put it out too. I love you honey, mommyDelete
good morning! i absolutely love the truck! and every year sarge planted me pansies in podunk, he loved them as much as i did. every time i see them i think of him and miss him...ReplyDelete
Hi Bee, Some times it just the littlest thing that can take us back in our memories. I know you loved your Sarge. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
