Glorious Gardening!

What a beautiful Memorial Day Week-end we just had. No rain in sight, just beautiful 70 degree days with lots of sun and blue skies.

Finally found the time to get my deck container garden done and I'm very happy with the results.

This year, I went with all white on the front deck. I saw it on a house in the neighborhood and decided I really liked the look. This is a picture of the pots that hang over the deck railing.

And her is a picture of a couple of my pots on the front deck. I still want to add a few more pots. Of all the white plants I planted this week-end, I liked the petunias best. So I'll probably be back at the garden store to get some more petunias.

Most of the planting took place on the back deck, which is where I plant my herbs and veggies. This is a picture of my herbs. I've got basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary and parsley.

Here's a picture of the veggie section of the deck. I've got tomatoes, lettuce, green beans and squash. I'm not real sure if the squash will work in a pot, but...what the heck. It's worth the try.

All of this, just makes me happy!

  1. Good for you! We have tomatoes, basil and bell peppers planted. It's the first time we've had a garden so it was an experiment that really took! I like petunias too; I have bright pink ones in the front and in my backyard.

  2. I enlarged all your photos and took a good look at everything. Have I mentioned before that I'm a fan of white flowers? I like the pink table. Just a few hours ago I bought some herbs to plant in containers with my daughter-in-law at her house. I no 'nuttin' about herbs, but I'll keep you updated on how they progress.

  3. Would you believe the table used to be bright red, but it's faded over the years to a pinkish red. I keep debating whether to try re-painting, but the faded look goes better with my faded deck.

  4. I like the faded look, too. We just had two days of almost constant rain and the annuals I recently potted almost floated out of their pots. And....I was nine before I rode a bike and it was because the bike was huge, so you're not the only one with that excuse. ha-ha
