Front step blooms


Front step blooms, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

I bought the pretty geranium and wicker plant holder from the little Amish lady yesterday.
Did a little puttering around, not much as I was tired from yesterday. It was fun to put things around the yard, but I only planted a Turkish eggplant (you know I like unusual plants-scroll to bottom to see the orange fruit) and moved a droopy pepper. I took some photos as my flowers looked pretty despite the Chestnut tree catkins all over the place.

Petunias, Lantana, Millions of Bells
I’m getting lots of Lily blooms this year!

And a few bowl gardens-the fairy one is filling in nicely:

And the Succulent one with new green pebbles:

Some bauble in the Viburnum next to the fairy garden:

Fairy jar
The little jars (only this one is showing and the pebbles for the bowl garden were both under $2 each at the Christmas Tree Shop. : )
Tomorrow I hope to weed around the fairy garden and plant up a few more things. I’m on my 4th bag of potting soil (the soil from Dollar General for $3 is fine and like the pricier stuff).
Have a nice Sunday!

  1. Hi Dianne,
    What a pretty color combo of petunias on your front porch. Is that a bird cage?

    I am also liking the tree baubbles. That turquoise candlehoulder is very pretty.

    My containers are just starting to take off, too. It’s about time!

  2. Hello there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group?
    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content.
    Please let me know. Thank you
