Puttering Around





I planted my herbs this evening.


These are plastic flower pots that some pansies or something came in. They were black with writing on them. I painted them.

Some general pictures of the little garden since I've added a few things.





I took a picture to show how wilted my poor pansies are. It was very warm here today. They actually look pretty good in the picture.

I really like the pots and things at your bench, it looks lovely! And the pot you painted on looks very nice too. It is always fun to decorate a bit. Have a nice day!

Hulda, thanks! I agree; it is a lot of fun.

Your garden is shaping up nicely :) Your pots look great! Were they hard to paint on?

Lovely pictures Lisa. Tut, tut your poor pansies, you should see mine all pretty and perky! ;o) lol, sorry. But we don't get the sun :o( I like the painted pots. You are most artistic. Blessings to you.

Karen, thanks. :) They didn't take the paint well. My intention was to paint them white and leave them but the paint looked horrible, so I sponged (well, I used a plastic bag coz it was handy)another shade of paint over them; then I just decided to add flowers. I did spray them with a sealant since that pic and they look a little shinier. If I were doing it for someone else, I would put a primer on first but I figure, hey, it's free. I'd normally just throw those away.

Sarah, hurumph! Teasing me about my pansies. hehe They got some rain this morning so they're a bit perkier. Thanks for the compliment on my painting. I find it so relaxing to do; something just for fun. Today is date day. whoohoo. Catch ya later. :)
