Beautiful, Tomtom. I love the arrangement in the last pic.
Thanks!
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?

Phoenix, AZ

They're all crazy.. must be the fertilizer, fish emulsion. The best I can get out of them is a "moon" shot.

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.

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

Austin, TX

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?
