So pretty Allison! Containers are a lot of work - I bet you spend tons of time watering, deadheading, etc. But the result is sure worth it. Love all the color. Thumbs up

Beautiful, Allison! I love all the containers and you have a lovely view! Your hummingbird pics are so good too. I enjoy seeing them show back up here every year.

thank you.. as for watering.. I installed micro sprinklers in each of those pots on the post.. the tube runs up the back of each one... watering is easy as turning on the valve.. gives me more time to deadhead & enjoy

What a lot of work you've done there! Love all the containers, and I am so jealous of all those hanging containers! Lovely!
