Let the planting begin!

I have an addiction for flowers, I admit it, I walk into a greenhouse and I want two of everything! I know this will be hard for some of you to believe but I love buying my spring flowers - gasp! more than scrap supplies!! Luckily spring only comes once a
year :-b

So I bought my first batch today, mostly just the filler flowers for all the pots, once I have these laid out I will go back and pick out the rest of what I need. I used to actually sketch out my pot and bedding designs and make lists of the plants that I needed, but I am trying something different this year. I am not going to try and get all my flowers at once, but take my time and do a few pots, make another trip to the greenhouse and do a few more pots, stretch out the process a little. I love combining the colors, textures and different sizes of the plants, making all those great layers!

From that last statement you can tell I like to put together all my own pots, but this planter was just to beautiful to pass up! You see mostly just the green right now, but in about 2 weeks it will be full of color!
