flowering quince

My little flowering quince bush is blooming out her blossoms which makes me happy knowing
spring is just around the corner. I've been sneezing like crazy, but I love it! Sneezing means flowers!
I'm so ready for some warmer weather so I can work in my yard and fix up the deck with a new paint job and some patio furniture. I want a calming place outside to watch birds and tend to my plants.
It will happen this year.

Any advice on flowers that do well in pots?

  1. I've always liked geraniums! Nothing like that burst of pink or red and those happy, lily-serrated leaves. I think nasturtium might do well too. I love them. :)

    herbs do GREAT in pots and smell great AND you can cook with them. ;)

    1. Herbs are a great idea! I want to try some catnip for my kitties as well.

  3. Amazing pictures! They make me wish that the spring would come already! We still have so much snow here in Lapland, Finland. But maybe we'll get a more spring-like weater next month. :)

  5. These magical colors are truly to die for. Sadly, I fail at gardening anything other than succulents, so no tips from me!

    1. Thank you, Jas! If I could have it my way I would cover my deck with succulents. I have a few inside. They're my fave plants by far.
