...one's mind turns to the spring! You all know that I am nuts abut the library. I recently found this book while looking through the shelves. The funny thing is, I took out the exact same book at the same time, so I had 2 copies with different titles and cover pages. Peculiar. Anyway, I love this whole idea because I already do it. I had impatiens in a blue and white stripe teapot, basil in a yellow enamel one and cherry tomatoes in a tin bucket I found in the trash.
I especially love this picture because our well used brown betty teapot at work has finally given up the ghost. Her handle is cracked and will soon pop right off, so rather than risk a dramatic episode with hot tea all over, I have retired her to my future garden where she will be happy amongst the plants.
I am also enjoying Pocket Gardening, lent kindly to me by one of my knitting neighbors. All three of us have "pocket" gardens meaning gardens so small and dinky that the neighborhood stray cats think ieach are their own personal litter boxes. Mine happens to be mainly concrete with a square of dirt, so containers appeal. Needless to say, I have been favoriting pictures like these pretty ones-
