Winter Containers


It is a beautiful day. I have just taken five minutes in the garden to see how things are progressing before it rains as forecast !

This planter of begonias didn’t flower in the summer but it is flowering now . I think it is a bit confused🤔

They are beautiful. I haven't done mine yet but I really must get a wriggle on.

Looking good margories, some nice combinations and the white cyclamen look lovely with the trailing ivy.

All look very pretty and are well worth doing. The begonias made me smile - must have a mind of their own!!!

Very pretty Marjory! haven't done mine yet either - waiting for it to be dry enough to get down to the shed for some compost.

Thank you for your lovely comments. Gardening is a therapy for me at the moment. Although I can't do much but look at the moment.

It's nice to have interesting containers for the winter. They will brighten up the dreary days for you :)

They all look lovely Marjory. I only did my window boxes and one large pot with bulbs and violas at the top. All the rain put me off doing more !

Lots of interesting pots there ... will provide plenty of colour over the winter months. Good ideas of planting.
