Thank you.. It is branches of a flowering cherry I think it is Sargento or something like that. Also included are a few spirea branches. Simple is all I can do. I just fill up a container until I get it looking like I want.

I do a few through the summer for my church. I will try to post them when I get more flowers. The first one I did it was in a pitcher just a medium sized one and it didn't show up much. Now I use a great big old jar and fill it full. Last year I had lots of iris and they showed up real pretty but I got mad at the sorry way they looked in late summer and pulled them out. They were in way too much sun. Now i only have a few Iris. The other day I got one of them back (a start) and silly me I put it behind my only large rock thinking it would shield it. Guess what a SW wind came along and it is leaning over Sad . I'll probably move it a little when it warms back up. Chilly here today.

I really like the Siberian iris, not too many bearded iris here, but love to use the leaves in arrangements. Looking forward to what you come up with this year.
The roses croaked except one so this day I picked a few tulips and some forget me nots.

Really like that scene Candee. I planted the forget me not seed the first of this month. I hope I get some plants and seeds so they will reseed. I'm not sure what they look like but looks like they are small. Do you have any more garden pictures you should put them on the garden tour thread on the clematis cubit.

Thanks, weeds I doubt that a pigsty is a correct term! I like things organized part of my OCB!!!
Veronica thanks as well, I really wanted something different. I got the lobster pot at the bay and the shells in OC and on other travels and the coral on other travels as well. The treasure chest was an Ebay find as were the junk jewels. Then I spray painted some coins gold and tossed around! We made the parrots on the fence and Steve has since made me a beautiful adirondack chair for out there! http://cubits.org/handmade/thr...
I grow pineapples and vigna caracalla, passiflora and several other exotics out on that island!
This is one of the beautiful vigna blooms

Not much in pots here, just some things to decorate the deck tables and a few pots along the back of house within the lilacs, quince and such. I put the dahlia tubers in pots and bury halfway in the garden as that makes it easier to find and dig in the fall.
