Cottage Flora

The weather is still too cold and unpredictable here for us to plant.  My hubby has been raking and cleaning out the flower beds.  He added mulch to a few last week.  I am just slowly filling up a few of my container gardens.  This is a rusty old bike planter that I always fill with seasonal flowers.  In the fall a pot of mums sits inside.
I adore Pansies.  I think they have "happy faces".  I love this weathered mini chair that holds my pansies.  I  think the Daffodil is admiring the Pansies too.
It's so windy here today, you can see how it's blowing the Daffodils to the side. 

I love garden flags.  I have a few scattered here and there but this little cutie is my favorite.  It stands only about 12 inches high.  It's adorable down by the mailbox bed.  I am going to pick up a few more to scatter around the front yard.  I love how they look blowing in the wind.

That's my share for today.

Joining up with Tracie at Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday.

Your flowers are gorgeous and I love your rusty bike planter! Very cute:)

Thank you for stopping by my blog. My father in law and hubby made the shelf with the mason jar, I'd seen them on Etsy but they were upwards of $40 plus shipping...too expensive for me! I buy my lavender from Etsy, here's the shop link
Her lavender is amazing, she grows it all herself!

Hi Roselle,
That is the cutest little tricycle planter, how sweet. Wish we could get some rain here, so dry cant even plant flowers.

Check out my post, Tammy gave me another tea party. Thursday weigh in was only 1 lb down, but at least its down. Have a wonderful Easter friend.
