Green with Envy

I love plants and receive so much joy in planting them and watching them grow. For the past ten years, I've mostly been using terra cotta pots. However, this year I made a change. My friend, Teresa, loves plants and has several blog posts featuring some of the potted plants that she has created. The pots were soooo pretty. I decided that I wanted some, too. I was inspired! I started looking in February without too much luck. As things got warmer, I had better luck...not at the two home stores in town, but at Ross, of all places! I found some good ones at T. J. Maxx, too. I'm not sure, but I think I heard those two stores telling Teresa "Thank you" for stimulating the economy here. Here's some of what I found.

I quietly collected my pots and then waited for the warm weather and the spring plant season to catch up with me.

The stores finally began to get in their spring and summer plants and I was there ready and waiting to make my selections.

I was busy for several weeks. I was planting, looking for additional plants and enjoying the process.

Here are a few pictures that I took along the
way as I started the spring planting process.

It doesn't take too long to plant the pots if you have all your supplies ready and assembled. This pot only took about fifteen minutes to plant.

I should have know that I was headed in the right direction when I decided to leave the terra cotta pots behind. Most of the pots I selected were made by the same company....Green with Envy! I think Teresa would be proud!

Check out Teresa's blog at BloomingonBainbridge
She'll be happy to see you there!

I'm linking up with the party:
