My Mother’s Day Pot

Susan from A Southern Daydreamer is hosting Outdoor Wednesday. Please visit her for a list of bloggers participating in this weekly event.

This picture is a pot at the end of our front sidewalk that my daughter gave me for Mother’s Day. It has been planted with alyssum, Million Bells and profusion zinnias. I love the little wire trellis with the little bird perched on top. I usually plant my own pots, but it sure is nice to have one already done for you and filled in like this one!

IMG_0792 IMG_0793IMG_0795This is the first time I’ve seen the profusion zinnias this color of yellow. I hope they do as well as the orange and pink ones I’ve had before.

Thanks for stopping by today, and hope you have a great day!

Diane

Morning Diane! Ohhh what a pretty pot and I love that bird trellis!!! I've never heard of those pretty orangey flowers; look like mini morning glories or petunias! Love them; I too plant my own mixed pots but you are right it is nice to have it done for you once in a while! Very pretty! Have a great week - Jeannette

What a cute wire addition to that pot. I know what you mean - I usually pot my own too - but it is nice to have them given to you. I love the profusion zinnias too. PAM

What a beautiful and thoughtful Mother's Day gift ... The wire trellis will be pretty with ivy or a green plant this winter, too. Kelli did good, didn't she!

Oh Diane, your mother's day flowers are gorgeous. I love the bird too. I am sorry I never did get a post done yesterday. Our company has kept us so busy. We are having fun though.

Love and hugs...Jeanne

Christina said...

Such wonderful goodness in a pot. I love the zinnas with the Million bells. I didn't know what the Million bells were called. We have some too, but they didn't have a tag. We have purple and pink. What a beautiful mother's day gift.
