Summer Eye Candy – Container Gardening


Pinterest is one of my favorite places to spend a rainy afternoon.  I can get lost for hours at a time.    Since Summer is officially upon us, I thought I would share some out the summer lovelies from my Pin boards.   (You can click on the images to visit the original source.)
Garden - Galvanized pots
Some of my favorite flowers are Spring bulbs.  I love how these look in the galvanized pots.

Kettle container
You don’t need a piece of land to have a garden.  Container gardening can be beautiful.   Love the kettle!
Shabby garden decor
You can even have a shabby garden.

Pallet garden
If you live in an apartment, you can even garden UP!

Door garden
An old door garden.
Log garden
Now this one won’t fit on your deck or balcony but it’s still awesome!

I love all of these inspiration pics. I can't say that I miss the change in seasons as much as I miss the blossoms of spring and gardening in the summer. :)

(I figured out the problem, in the URL section you had put @blogspot.com instead of .blogspot.com) :)

We have a log at the cabin just like that. Hmmmmm. Get out the chain saw honey.
