Do you ever just stare in admiration at some of the beautiful containers found in public places such as botanical gardens, boulevards and other sites? Post your photo's here...it could be quite inspirational for our home gardens.

Here's a lovely use of a Fertilizer Spreader taken in Charlottetown PEI

Susie, those are beautiful! And here I thought my containers looked good.......The first 2 pics are simply breath taking, need to see if I can impliment any of those design elements into my own containers.

KATG ...Dolly Pardon has the most beautiful container arrangements at Dollywood that I've ever seen. We went in the early Fall and the colors of the flowers were breathtaking! Her theme park is so clean; you can almost eat off the streets. That's a credit to her and her employees. Pride indeed!
