My 2010container gardening starts !
Hooray! I love watching your gardening thread every year. Always so inspirational. Beautiful containers, TomTom!
So pretty, you do such beautiful work. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
These are all so beautiful. You do such a good job of making everything pretty.
Beautiful, Tomtom. I love the arrangement in the last pic.
Edit: I forgot to ask. In the first picture. The pale yellow pansies (?) are all facing the same direction... seeking the sunlight, I assume. When you create and display a planting, do you keep the directional orientation the same so all the flowers always face the same direction?

Aguane - Don't your plants look at the camera for you when you are taking their picture?
They're all crazy.. must be the fertilizer, fish emulsion. The best I can get out of them is a "moon" shot.

Those pics are absolutely beautiful. I'm anxiously awating you next photos! Joyce
Thanks so much TomTom. I always enjoy your work. You are so artistic.
Tomtom, beautiful pots of plants. I do so enjoy seeing what you do.
We had summer weather for past few days, after a very short spring!!!!!!! It is cloudy and cooler now. But the low temp. for the night was a very warm 57 degrees, think that is a record for the night/day of the year.
I am just beginning to plant my pots. Here is a not very good picture, because I couldn't mover the pot. have to wait until the fellow who works for me is here and also when I am sure it won't freeze on my deck. It is now in a protected area.
The tallest plant is made over hemlock. I couldn't locate a weeping hemlock, so pruned the one I did find to look like weeping hemlock.
They are all beautiful Tomtom. The little pot of lobelia is so charming and the setting is perfect.
So beautiful. You have such a lovely way of grouping your plants Tomtom.
I can't imagine that Tomtom ever wants to leave the gorgeous gardens!
I am thrilled with rthe containers TomTom
I always look forward to seeing your creations.
wow, tomtom. As always, your containers are just breath taking. Gorgeous!!!!
Collinsia was on Annies Annuals and good in this zone,annual I suppose.
Thank you al, for your kindly comments.
Yes, this Collinsia is annual. I have been growing Collinsia for few years.
Annie's Annual is my second favourite site of Gardening.
(The first is Dave's ,of course !!)
By the way, I really love your water color painting.
I wish I could paint so well as you !

Tomtom your container images are beautiful. Someone said, Love is what one does, and one can see that you truly enjoy/love what you are doing! Snug, :o)
Collinsia isnt in production this year.It will go on my wish list for 2011
Tomtom, your containers are delightful, thank you for all the beautiful pictures. Is the grey spikey plant in #5, and also with the yellow tulips the galactites tomentosa that you listed? I love silvery and lime green foliage plants alomost as much as flowers. Do you change out the plants often, like when the tulips die back?
