After all the intense events I am more than ready for some solitude and ease and peace and flow. My way of dealing with frustrations and exhaustion has been container gardening – for many years. So I went to the store and bought me some large, new, very colorful planters. They sure look cheerful and I was able to fit many different plants into each of them.
I planted a rose bush as a centerpiece and added some flowers and herbs around. The herbs that do especially good in the outdoor planters and pots during Central Florida sizzling hot summer months are: thyme, rosemary, lemon balm and chives. There are several others I didn’t have much success with and then there are marigolds, echinacea, certain kind of petunias, amaryllis, Mexican petunias. pentas and certain kinds of groundcovers like stonecrop (gold moss sedum) that always do good, no matter how much rain and humidity or sunshine and draught we get to encounter.
A sight like this always uplifts my moods and I’m already looking forward to the time when marigolds will be in full bloom and all the herbs will turn bushy and thriving. Besides, the scent of my blooming tea rose is something I never get tired of. And the beauty of every bloom is simply unique and stunning.
These containers and plants in them will be providing uplifting sights and anti-stress chores for months to come. I find plants to be a bottomless well of life energy for me. They are always uplifting and cheerful and with container gardening it’s easy to keep them around at all times, outdoors and indoors. And spring seems to be the perfect season to start one’s first miniature container garden.
