Garden Containers And Planted Steps

This is a sweet temporary idea.
Very Cute.

I love these heads filled with succulents and flowers.

In the right place.....cute.

Bicycle planters - one of my faves.

I have done this filled with orchids is pots in an old L.V. suit case.

I think these cork containers are 
without question my favorites from the lot- 

I would only like the wall covered in pots in terracotta.
....and brimming with green or flowers.

Too tedious for me.

I think I would like to try this at my Mom's in Maine....
but in stone.
I will be there on June 6th till.....

Have a great day!!

  1. Renee, I agree with everything. I love the "tree trunk" planters. I am not at all shabby chic so some of this doesn't do it for me. I am awaiting word on your mother, so please let me know how she is. Sending love to both of you....

  2. oh ....
    she is good.
    she made it through with flying colors.

    i talk to her several times a day and today is the best day so far


  3. I think that in a "whimsical" garden some of these planted pots would look good. For the most part, though, I'm pretty old-fashioned when it comes to pots. I like my plants potted in terracotta or urns (metal or cement). I prefer a formal or country garden to a whimsical one.

  4. I absolutely adore the second pic! Those heads are quite the conversation pieces!!

  5. Renee, you can imagine I would love this post! The flowering heads are great...and the cork pots ......look like logs, to me? Beautiful. All the containers have their bit of charm, depending on who loves them and where they are being used....there is no wrong way, in my opinion! N.xo

  6. I have got to take a picture of my neighbors gorgeous container garden. He has won so many awards.
    Now I know what to do with the portrait bust I messed up, lol! Put a wig of greenery on it!
    Great post, Miss Renee!
    Happy Tuesday.

  7. The stone heads for me!! They are brilliant. And all have such wonderful expressions. xx

    1. yes,
      i was torn between the cork pots and the stone heads.
      i adore the stone heads with GREEN HAIR!!!

      what could be more fun?


  8. that's hard to nail down i loved so many. well i could opt for a white stucco wall with turquoise pots!

    that amiable young man looks like he would love to travel to maine and build a stone wall, mama would like that too!

  9. These are gorgeous! Lovely ideas for gardening! Have a lovely day, Kellie xx

  10. Hey Sweetie,
    Some great inspiration here - thank you. I hope your mom is doing well and that you enjoy your get-away to beautiful Maine. Relish the cooler weather. xo



Thanks for participating!!
