The Potting Bench

Last year the potting bench was white.  Dirty, old, spray-painted 6 years ago, white.  Then, I got the bright idea to use it to display all the plants I bring home.  Some folks bring home stray cats, I can't walk past a flower.

So, I added paint.  A nice, old-fashioned green.  I like it.

But was that enough?  No, not for me!  In one of my "Lucy" moments, I asked Eric to till up the yard where the potting bench sits.  Do you suppose he gets tired of my schemes?  After all, he had just dug up sod and expanded my herb garden to twice it's size....

All so I could go to Hitch's Greenhouse and buy all kinds of herbs I don't know how to use yet.  Shhh.... Please don't tell Eric that part.

At the end of the day, this is what we accomplished.  I transplanted my Brown-eyed Susans and planted some daisies and a neat cone flower.  It still takes a bit of imagination, but in a few weeks.... 

What is your favorite flower or herb to grow?  How do you display your flowers?  Should I quit all the froofy stuff and concentrate on planting some seeds that will grow into food.. Don't answer that. ;)


  1. You are so talented

  2. I love my flowers although Jim doesn't always agree! But I also sure love my garden and the edible stuff! David wants to do the herb garden~ I have never known what to do with any of it!

  3. I love flowers too, but don't seem to have enough time to do all I want to do. Your new beds look great!


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. Comments make me so happy that I dance around the room! ;)
