I thought I'd share a couple of pots that I got a great buy on today, and the plants I put in them. I got 2 of each, and they are planted the same.

This is a wall pocket hanging on my deck railing.
What a great buy at TJMaxx!
It has pentas in it - the butterflies love it!

And this is a VERY heavy and frost resistant clay pot,
bought at Christmas Tree Shops for $1.99 - what a steal!
It has osteospurmum and lobelia in it.

Oh, very nice, great deals. I thought it was verbena in the first one.

Still too early to plant in my pots yet.

How does the blue pot hang off the railing? I've never seen that before.

It has a flat back, and a small hole near the top - I hammered a nail in the wood at an angle - hopefully it will be able to hold the weight of the wet pot and not fall off!!!

Cool, I can't wait to see flowers outside. My hanging basket is sitting on the kitchen table waiting for the warmer weather.
