Flowers

I think (hope) we're out of the danger of frost.  Yesterday, I went to town to pick up my flowers for the season.  The costs are going up, and I am cutting back a little bit.  Next year, we will do more landscaping and I will incorporate more perennials. 
I was at the dollar store and found these cute little pots.

I bought three. 

 Add a whimsical bunny:


 I incorporated another rabbit, a chicken and a watering can:


I put it all together on short step ladder I picked up at a rummage sale years ago. 

 And walla........




And that's the way it is..............

  11. We're supposed to be beyond frost now too, but it's going down to around 40 tonight ... brrr ! I hear you about the cost of flowers - I ripped out a perennial bed that had grown wild last year and put in annuals this week - $$$. Think I'll scrounge around for some replacement perennials next year. Hope you remain frost-free ... for at least a few months ;>)
