The people in my neighborhood call me the "pot" lady. I work at the hospital in my town and if we get talking about gardening and I say where I live they often ask about all the pots. I got these for $13 each at Lowe's, they were originally $69. When I redo the porch, they will look much better.

These saucer pots were too low so I "elevated" them with old logs that I cut in 3rd's and used my girl scout skills and lashed them together to make the tripod and set the pots on top. Now they are about 5' tall. When the plants really start to grow, they will spill over the top. Each one cost me $9.

Spring is so late here that it has taken me so long to get things planted. I love my old ladder.

MyRee,

Those recycle ideas are awesome. I had noticed a neighbour had recently added an old ladder like you and it really added some dimension to her garden. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the comments. I love my containers. My front yard looks better this year than it ever has because of my containers. I will go out tomorrow and take more pictures.

Those are beautiful containers on your balcony. I am having such fun. My neighbors comment on the time that I spend in the garden. I would spend all day every day if I could. I am creating a new bed around my containers now. I am so pleased with how things are growing.
Joanna, I just hope to have flowers like you. I read many of your comments and look at the pictures, they are wonderful.
