Each year for the past several I have filled my mom’s outdoor planter for Mother’s Day. Here is this year’s planting process and result.
I cleared all of the old growth and dead leaves, including two snapdragon volunteers from last year, out of the pot.
I planted a tall spikey plant in the middle for height.
Three red geraniums were planted around the spike.
The two yellow snapdragons were returned to the pot. We shall see how they do!
Two trailing plants with blue flowers were placed on each side of the pot to spill over the edges as they grow.
Some trailing ivy and vines were placed around the edges to grow and spill over the side of the pot.
A small surprise from last year was re-placed in the midst of the plants with the reminder to bloom.
This is the view from above.
It is always fun to choose plants each year, to design the arrangement, and to watch the flowers bloom and grow all season.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! You are one-of-a-kind, and I love you so much.
