Blooming Tuesday

There are flowers blooming all around me - but not many in my yard.  I'm not able to do a lot of gardening - almost all of it is in pots on my deck.  Right now the pots are overwhelmed with violas - and I just can't get enough photos of them - in the shade - in the sunshine - and the scent is fabulous on these warm spring days.


























I hope you enjoyed the tour!!

I have them all around my house in pots too JoAnn - I love the crystal clear colours - nothing like them for cheering up the morning.

Hard to choose a favorite color--the clear jewel tones or the soft watercolors. Container plantings seems like a great way to go for you--protected from weather if necessary and the designing of a particular plant combo just really brings out the inner artist.

I love pansies! They seem to have little faces that peer at you. I love the way they are back lit by the sun - it makes them even prettier! Oh, I do love that yellow one with the lavender edging. I can imagine how sweet their scent is! xx

So pretty! I love violas- even more than pansies! It's great that they come back each year and share their pretty little faces once again!
