Spring Dreams

By Stephanie Bearce

I need spring NOW!  Unfortunately my yard is still full of snow and the forecast calls for below normal temperatures. So much for that global warming idea.

My fingers are itching to dig in the dirt and my eyes are longing to see colors that are not 50 shades of gray.  So what's a winter weary girl to do?
 Make plans for container gardens, of course!

I scoured the web to get new ideas for spring containers.  I found some that I really want to try.

And I found some that are uhm... well... let's just call them interesting.

Take a look and feast your eyes on a preview of spring color.

I love the use of wagons, wheelbarrows, and bicycles for creating a backdrop for lovely gardens.

But my yard is small, so hanging baskets and window boxes may be a better option for me.

But honestly - if I can find some of these statue type pots - I am going to have some FUN...

Ahh spring... you can't come too soon for me!
