A Day Well Spent

Great Containers at Swansons Nursery
Originally uploaded by mtnester.

Today I took my my coworker/friend, Sharon, out to lunch for her birthday. We went to the Old Town Ale house in Ballard and had delicious gumbo. Then we headed on up to Crown Hill and spent 3 hours perusing containers and plants at Swanson's Nursery. They had containers on sale 40% off and I got 2 in a light green, similar to the pot in the middle and on the right of this mosaic. I bought 2 heavenly bamboo plants as the focal plant for each pot. That's my start...who knows what direction I will take next. I won't take any photos of my own pots until they are fully planted and established. I sure got some great ideas at Swanson's though!

Ooooh! I love big, beautiful containers of fabulous plants. I used to have this 3' terra cotta planter with layer after layer of bulbs that I would over plant each spring after the bulbs were finished.
