I just had my phone with me today so the pictures aren't the best, but there was too much to see and not take any pictures.
There was lots and lots of spring container ideas to look at in the greenhouse area.
Molbak's always has amazing containers put together. They usually have all the plants in the containers nearby so that if you want to do it yourself you can, but you can also buy one ready made.
Pansies were everywhere and so bright and cheerful.
Maybe when it warms up a little I'll go back and get some spring color for some of my empty containers. The forecast is for more days in the low 40's and rain and no matter how much I love to garden, I'd rather do it when my hands won't go numb trying to plant everything.
Love how they used the pallets as backdrops to hang wooden crates. There were so many great ideas just on this one display.
Here they had hung terra cotta planters to use as storage.
I love how they used chain to hang the pallet as a table and attach it to other pallets. You can see the hanging terra cotta pots from the previous picture on the other side. This would be a great way to make a little secret seating area in a garden, the other side could be your potting bench.
We saw this huge rooster yesterday and Sweet Pea insisted I take his picture. I love how the picture turned out, very vintage looking. He was hanging out with all of the ducks by the pond, I think the chickens were all hiding from him.
I'm pretending not to be jealous of the warm weather that much of the country is getting, but it is so hard not to be. I did notice the cherry tree beginning to bloom and the pear tree isn't too far off from blooming either. I decided to acclimate the pea (sugar snap and Sweet Pea), spinach and Brussels sprouts seedlings. Normally I start peas outside, but after the last two years of wet springs they didn't do well so I thought I'd give them a head start this year. Hopefully they'll do okay in the upcoming cold days.All words and photos in this post are property of A Gardener in Progress.
