Container Gardens, Patio, and Carport (Part 1)

I had to do this post in two parts because I can't figure out how to load more than five pictures at a time. Now, those of you who have been at this for a while need to tell me the best way to do this the next time.

This house on the garden tour had too many great details to put into one post. Although the garden was just a well manicured lawn with a few flower beds, the patio and carport was worth touring.

Don't you love the archway into the back lawn? I have always wanted a picket fence.



Wouldn't you love to have a good book and some sweet tea out here?



Most of the beautiful flowers were in pots. I really need to fix more container gardens this year.






Don't you just love the bunny?



To be continued........check out Part 2.

I like ALL of this! (I don't do containers - I'm not good at keeping things watered, fertilized, etc. but I LOVE seeing them. Just know better than to try it again.)

Very often I wish I had a small yard that was easy to keep perfectly manicured. The picket fence and trellis are so cute.

It looks like a wonderful spot to rest and take a nap!

I only add one pic at a time and each time I add a pic I just click on the upload button.

Hi,
I always look forward to the garden tours in our area. You got some great pics and I am with you, I have always wanted a picket fence. I may get the "hint" of a picket fence if not the whole thing this year. You captured the beautiful containers and the lovliness of the yard. Thanks for taking me along.

So much to love in these pics: colorful outdoor furniture, beautiful plants, and a white picket fence! I like the uncluttered look, too!

I would paint there, capturing all those little containers - while trying to contain my excitement! What a lovely spot.

There are so many ideas, you are right! I just love the fence too.

And the little sitting areas are so welcoming with pots of pretty flowers. I can't wait to fill my pots with flowers!

good morning, carla!

you've created quite a lovely garden reading
spot.

and look at all your followers and readers.
isn't this fun?

Lovely outdoor spaces. I enjoy planting up containers and then moving them around the garden when I need a spot of color. Problem is I have so many containers of ivy now - however it's easier to control than when it's in the ground.......and as it rarely dies, one is always happy to have something to fill in a blank area with some green!

Carla, you are using regular Blogger which only allows uploading 5 pics at a time, however you should then be able to add another 5 following adding the original 5 to your post. I am now using the optional Blogger in Draft which is much better - can load as many pics as you want and choose their size - largest being so much bigger and clearer than in original Blogger. You may want to switch over and see if you prefer it.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs - Mary

P.S. Your girls are so adorable.....and the kittens!

Such fun to see nice neat and tidy gardens. I like picket fences too and have a very long one but after nearly 10 years bothering because I haven't painted it I've decided it doesn't need painting.

Hello! I can't resist visiting a blog that is southern. I'm a southerner transplanted to the midwest! I've almost over stayed my welcome, as my mother would say, but I loved the tour, the containers, well--all of it!

Have a wonderful Sunday with those beautiful girls! And, please stop by my blog any time. I'll make iced tea, sweetened of course!

Best,
Bonnie

Now those lounge chairs look like they were made for me! I said the other day I wonder when everything will be done so we can just sit back and enjoy!

I was adding pics only one at at time for a while, just clicking upload after each one then I realized I could add 5 at a time! That doesn't mean you can only add 5, once they are loaded just do the same again and load 5 more if you like ;-)
