Happiness Month Monday #3

 This may look like an odd thing to bring happiness but it does! 

We bought 2 of these pots and another different one when we redid the plantings on our small patio about 3 years ago. The other plants are thriving but the one in this pot died after being infested with grubs.

It is hard to throw away things like dirt where I live now as we have restrictions on the amount of trash that will be picked up. So I've slowly been adding a bag or two of dirt each week to the trash and I'm finally done.

I decided a lavender plant would work well and a friend offered to have her landscaper son order one for me along with a larger order he was placing. Now all we have to do is scrub the pot, bleach it and rinse well. 

I see this patio often during each day and enjoy the plantings and their various flowers. Once the plant arrives we can hopefully enjoy it for a long time.

  1. The pot has very interesting lines, I can see why you like it. I think a lavender plant would be perfect in there.

    God bless.

    1. Thanks. The other of the pair has a very healthy fern in at at the opposite corner of the patio.

  2. Re-potting plants when you don't have a yard sounds challenging. Glad the empty pot makes you happy. I can see why.

    1. It is more the idea of having a healthy pretty plant in it again. A process.

    2. Juhli, I know what you mean about pots and plants in your yard. I'm lucky in that if I ever decide to turn over a pot or plant, my daughter is there with outstretched hands. Ha.

  4. Juhli, I know you remember life in the midwest. Whenever I want to dump a pot, I go to the edge of the field and give it a toss. Life is different for you now. I made the somewhat difficult decision not to plant a garden this year. I'm only going to plant a few big pots of flowering annuals, too. We're trying to make some wiser choices and want to be able to keep up with the demands. I like your idea of planting lavender...I love its fragrance!

    1. LOL, I left the Midwest in 1967 after high school but did live in Atlanta for 20 years. We would have more plantings I think but the HOA regs mean only our patio is ours. It has actually been a nice chore break as there are lots of lovely trees, shrubs and flowers around.
