We’ve had such beautiful weather here in South Texas, I’ve got spring fever. So instead of painting today let’s get out in the garden! Remember my recycled Garden Boots? Well, the plants are getting a little larger and looking good. To see how we made these into planters CLICK HERE.
When Paul O’Brien, our friend and collector, visited a couple of weeks ago he took us to Home Depot and surprised us with some beautiful containers for our back patio. Sissie, one of our shelter kitties, had to make certain they were OK before we could do any planting.
Yellow Pansies are perfect for the larger blue ceramic pot. We decided to repot a Begonia into the smaller container. I had to cut it back some in the transfer but it will fill out and be flowering in no time. The Mystic Spires Salvia to the left of the pots is just starting to bloom. Just click on the picture to see it larger.
Paul chose a Texas Pot for Jack’s succulent garden. We planted several different little babies. Give them a few months and they’ll totally fill the container. As soon as we are safely past any freezes we’ll move the succulent containers back to Jack’s garden on the other side of the studio.
While I was planting butterflies were dipping and dancing through the air. I finally was able to catch a decent picture of the Pipevine Swallowtails when they settled down on the Salvia by the containers. Hope you enjoyed a little bit of early spring today. I’ll be in the studio tomorrow starting on a new painting. Do come back and we’ll head out to the ocean. Smiles and Hugs, Mikki Senkarik
