Framed garden update

I’m not sure I have any readers out there since I sort of took an unexpected hiatus from blogging for quite a while.   I wish I had a good reason but I really don’t.  I just needed some time away from my blog and for the longest time I didn’t miss it at all.  I have been feeling a bit more creative lately and decided it was time to try to post a bit more often.  At least I’m hoping to be able to keep posting, or rambling as I like to think of it.

I thought I’d share an update of a couple of the planters I made this spring.




Here they are today, three months later.

At first they were slow to grow but they have really filled in and I love looking at them.  Here are some close ups, I just love the different colors and textures in these planters.

Now if I could just decide what color to paint the frame or if I even want to paint it or just varnish it to keep the chippy look it has now.

Thank for looking and not giving up on me.


I usually link to these fabulous parties:
