Container Gardens and the Back Deck

Well, it has been a frightfully dry and hot summer this year in the Northeast making it especially hard to keep gardens thriving and growing well.  Add to that, a week away on vacation and the fact that I have every pesky critter known to a gardener in my yard, such as deer, woodchucks, squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits, and you will see why I am so thankful for my container gardens.  They have saved my butt, garden-wise, this summer, as they have often done in years past.  I am a real proponent of the container garden and truly enjoy creating new container designs every year.

Grocery Store Flowers and a Hand Held Bouquet

I am always trying to practice the art of floral design but, it can get kind of pricey with the cost of flowers.  So often, when I just want to practice for practice sake, I buy flowers from my local grocery store.  They usually do not cost very much and there is usually a decent assortment to choose from. I think this day I purchased two or three bunches of mixed flowers.
