My Picks

I don't think I've ever had a more pleasant July weekend in my life. Breezy 72 degree weather is so refreshing. If only it would last forever. We spent most of Saturday outside picking blackberries, vegetables and doing yard work. I made blackberry cobbler and even washed windows. It was a very productive day around here. Here's a few pics of our picks.

The gladiolas are in bloom and oh how I love them. They always end up on the ground, so why not cut them and bring them inside to enjoy.
And take a look at this beautiful strawberry pot full of Hens and Chicks. I've always loved these little plants, but never could think of a good place to put them. Thanks to a friend of mine, I now have a great idea and even walked away with some starts.

Here are some more beautiful ideas for what you can do with your old strawberry pots.

What have you done with your strawberry pots?


  1. Cute ideas! I just bought a small strawberry pot at a garage sale and now I know what to put in it...I'll probably wait until next spring to plant something though.

  2. I planted impatients in mine. They thrive in a strawberry pot!

  3. Your plants are beautiful. You can read about my brown thumb on my blog...not like your green one...LOL

  4. I love the water feature! Great idea!
