How the Garden Grows....

How does the garden grow this week ?
Not well....
We need rain soooo badly !
I'm really thinking of doing a little rain dance.
Scary huh?

You know I am always moving my furniture around ,
and changing things on the wall .
I'm just as bad in the garden.
If a combination doesn't look right , I'll re pot.
I'm constantly moving pots to other spot.
Maybe a little.

Remember my succulent containers ?

This one from the " Sunshine Garden "post.
It just never looked quite right to me.
Plus I didn't like this ladder in the display.
It got too busy and dare I say "junky" looking.
I know, I know , I like junk.
Just not too much in one place...
you know what I mean ?

Sooo anyway.....
I changed it .

I like it much better in this crazy pot nestled in the flower bed.

 And I changed the ones on the lower steps of the ladder too.

The old bread pans seemed like I good idea at the time...
I sprayed this clay pot with Rustoleum 2X Coverage in Key Lime.
It just makes me smile.

I painted a turtle this color too.
NO , not a real one !
I'll show you sometime.

I also had to change this one.
You find the original post here.
Actually the whole dispaly has changed ...
OCD , right ???

Terrible picture anyway...
I didn't like the big succulent in the back.
But I really didn't like the way  the rim of the inner pot showed.
It just irritated me every time I looked at it .

I found this vintage pan a few weeks back when I took Rhonda junkin with me .
She got one too.
Wonder if she's gotten her hens and chicks planted in hers..
gonna have to ask her ..

I'm liking this one MUCH better !
What do you think ?
Better or " you're crazy , just leave things alone " ?
