We’ve been working on the landscaping around our home for about a month or so. What on earth possessed us to work on LANDSCAPING in FLORIDA in the middle of the SCORCHING HEAT is beyond me…but once we started, it was kind of addicting…so we just kept it up!
Now, like most any woman, I guess, I do love my annuals! Something pastel for spring, a nice bright color for summer, oranges for fall and reds for Christmas! I like all kinds!
I’m all the time changing them out in the window boxes and pots on our front porch, but I wasn’t sure how to best incorporate them into our permanent landscaping. The pots were just so easy! The pots were just so easy. Hmmm…
We went ahead and planted Confederate Jasmine in our front beds for some ground cover, and, while it’s pretty, I needed some more color!
So, here’s what I did: I planted. I planted pots.
How does one plant a pot, you ask?
Right into the ground! (Even the frogs liked it!) Oh, and please excuse all the mud and glare: it’s done nothing but pour down rain for weeks around here!
So when you’re ready to switch things up a bit, it’s as easy as…
…pulling the old ones out of the planted pot, and dropping the new ones right in!
So now I have lovely orange and yellow Mums to welcome Fall! Don’t you love them?!
I really love how they turned out – quick and easy, just how I like gardening to be! (And you can see a wee little preview of our Fall porch in the background – I’ll share the whole thing soon!)
Have you ever planted pots before? Could that work for you in YOUR landscaping?
