The weather has been perfect for puttering in the garden. For me that means heading out to a couple of my favorite local nurseries for some inspiration.
I always come home with as many plants as my budget will allow. This time it's pretty annuals and a little time spent at my potting bench putting together some sunny container gardens.
Isn't it amazing how much beauty can come from a couple of hours with a few plants and a bag of potting soil.
The best part is that these will continue to make me smile for months to come.
I put together a little tutorial on how to plant a container garden on my teaching blog Lessons from Lemon Lane if you want to give it a try.
