The Early Bird Gets the...Pot

This past Saturday my mom and I decided to get up early and get our flowers. We were up and out of the house by 9:30!

We went to our usual flower place, The Anderson's. They have a pretty good plant and flower selection. We walked around for while and found what we needed...and some things I didn't need, like two new pots. I've said before that I'm not doing a lot of planting flowers because I want to concentrate on cleaning up our yard (especially the back), so my focus is just to do pots. I found two that I really liked and they weren't that expensive.

This pot I bought a few years ago and I love it. It's pretty big but it has a nice home on the corner of the garage. You see a lot of green right now because the flowers haven't fully bloomed.

Here's my model (we have to work on her looking at the camera). She wanted to get in the picture.

Here's one of my new pots. I love the colors in it. I planted flowers that I ordered through my friend Amber. I love the colors of the blooms.

Here's my other new pot. I love the shape of this one.

Lastly, this is what my mom came over and did this morning! She came over while we were at church and planted some flowers and divided one of my hosta and replanted it. We need to put some edging around this bed to keep the dirt in...see it spilling over?

This week we'll be working on the back. I'll have more pictures because I need to document the before and after. Right now it's a mess but soon it will be lovely. Mommy and I also bought some hosta for the back and I saw these lovely plants called Mexican Heather that we'll plant behind the deck. You'll see...

Great work! This must have been the weekend to be in the garden as I worked in my flowers all day yesterday. Just like you I split a lot of my hostas up and planted new flowers in my pots. Thanks for sharing and you will have to see my hard work Wednesday! Have a blessed Sunday!

Love the Lantana in the blue pot - that stuff grows like weeds here in AZ! But the pink & yellow blooms are one of my favorites. I also love the red ones. We have lots around our pool area! And we have Mexican Heather too! I don't know if it will come back where you live, but I planted it last year and it's come back so beautiful! Can't wait to see your before and after pics :-)

How sweet of your mama :)
I have planted Mexican Heather before and it's gorgeous and purple-y. Yours are so pretty. I've got to get outside and get going on mine.
