This is the first spring since DH built my potting bench on our deck. I'm having a grand ol' time filling pots and planters for our deck. This spring I'm planting flowers like those in my Nonna's huge flower beds when I was a child. I think of it as an old-fashioned garden.
These yellow lion pansies are tucked in planters here and there on the deck. This one is in a pot on the shelf outside of the kitchen window.

Lots of pink snaps adorn the three planter boxes on the deck. So cheerful!

These are called white blotch. Could it be a purple blotch??

These pinwheel petunias were the favorites of one of my sons when he was a boy. Still a favorite of mine!

Lantana is new to me this spring. I haven't used them until now and just love the tiny delicate blossoms!

Of course, geranium--gotta have those! I didn't buy as many as usual this year, so this is the token one for now.
What's growing in your pots and planters?

And this world is fading away...But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.
~ 1 John 2:17

Beautiful Flowers!
This isn't spam, I'm not a robot, I just couldn't figure out how to email you so I'm leaving a comment, I'm sorry if this is an inconvenience to you.
My name is Gabrielle and I came across your site as I was looking for other christian women to connect with. I am a designer and seamtress of modest, sophisticated and modern clothing. My main goal is to make clothing that women, of all ages, will find appealing but will be modest. I started up an etsy shop because I have known so many, too many women, that are struggling to be christians and also to fit in with modern fashion and hence give in to the low cut shirts and miniskirts. I believe since we are christians, we should not fit in, or give in to the immodest apparel of this age. Therefore I started making clothing, that was fashionable but also modest. I design and make, skirts, dresses, shirts, blouses, tunics and so on. I would really like to get the word out there about my store and help the church! It is in desperate need of a wardrobe change in my opinion. I can't believe the things I see girls wearing to church these days. Anyways if there is any way you can help me to spread the word I would appreciate it, and I would be willing to give you a discount of 20% at my store. I actually have two stores at Etsy, Etsy by the way is a handmade community, everything on there is handmade and there is also a christian community on there, called the cast team, which I am on. The first store name is and the second one is Thank you for your time and I hope to hear back from you. You can email me at Thank you!

Your flowers are great! I love lantana. I planted some this year that looks a lot like yours, but with pink.
