Now how is this for some neat container planting?? This was one of the exhibits at the Philly Flower show this year. It was moss, succulents and some short yellow tulips. I thought it was really neat and you could make it easily and fill it with lots of different things, keeping the moss and succulents, but changing the blooming plants monthly.

Ronnie, Want to try hanging one of these on one of your patio walls?? Big Grin

This is one of the little planters that Froggy made and brought for the prize table for this spring's seed swap down in Frederick. It's so cute and is now living outside on my potting bench.

The shoe is really cute. Two weeks ago, we went to Saylorsburg and I saw a pair of wooden dutch shoes. I really should have bought them - kicking myself since - lol

Pam I am always looking for the wooden shoes...I'd be kicking myself too Hilarious!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Yes Luvs, Ric will build it for me. It will be pretty big so maybe Josh or Jamie will come and help. I was playing with the router last month thinking that maybe I could do the routing work. It's been in the planing stages for a long time but just about the time we are ready to start something comes up. It will be about 14ft X14ft and 8ft high. With a brick floor, It will support the big Wisteria that is sprawling all over the driveway. This is where it will go right next to the Potting Shed

Oh and Ronnie, that Wisteria of Holly's is fabulous. i hope you can get it done Holly. Maybe Ric and the boys will surprise you with it when you return from your diving trip. Start dropping hints now. Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Ronnie, I went to a silent auction last night and they had a big iron Cauldron on an ornate iron stand. I seriously thought about bidding on it, but didn't because I didn't even get around to getting my pots out of the basement this year. Oh, but was I tempted. I saw a lot of really nice pot holders up on tall frames, where the supports were actually trellises. Just the thing that would work great in my shady beds. Sigh, but I did restrain myself again.

Ronnie, It was a silent auction. You write your name & top bid on a card and the highest bidder wins on the last Sat of the month.

If you measure yours and tell me it's size, I'll keep my Blinking Blinking eyes peeled for one.

I did post somewhere that I lost most of my dahlia and cannas that I tried to overwinter in my garage by digging them up and putting them in boxes.. Since then I've gotten some good tips. I lost none of my callas because they were planted in sunken pots that I just lifted and popped into my garage without waiting for the leaves to die off from frost or anything. Sometime in early spring I cleaned off the dead foliage that was still attached and put them outside. I needed to repot them recently and they are doing just fine.

Teri, Sorry to hear that. Did the dahlias and cannas rot or dry out? I dug them up and stored them in paper bags in my unheated basement one year. They came back fine the next.

I store my Dahlias in plastic bags from the grocery store than pack them in a box, just makes sure they aren't wet when you put them away. I put the cannas in brown paper bags. Mine go into the basement(dungeon) it is cool and damp down there, really more like a cellar if you ask me Whistling

I had several boxes of tubers. Some of them shriveled and others just turned into a dusty mess. I don't think I have the correct storage temperature anywhere.

Sorry I haven't joined in on all the fun on this thread, unfortunately I haven't done much with containers this year, don't have a lot to add and the deck which usually looks stunning this time of the year is looking pretty sad. Sad However, per Stormy's request I'm here to post pictures of the succulent containers that Rick put together last year. I'm not sure if I have any other photos to show them later in the season but if I find some I'll post them. These were planted with those teeny little pots of succulents we picked up at Lowes that spring, cheap until you start adding up ALL the pots! Whistling The few Cactus were transferred from other pots.
