Containers In My July Garden

Here are several of my containers that look good in July. They were planted for several reasons: to find a place for extra plants, to fill empty spaces in the yard and garden, to create a vertical effect, to experiment or just to play with different plants.

Petunia
Here, it is a couple of months ago:


In the next picture, the petunia planter is seen on the left. Nearby, there are containers with yucca, perennials and succulents:

  2. Gorgeous! I don't have a lot of containers, as I often forget to water them. I can tell yours get a lot of love! I especially love the blues of the succulents and lobelia. Just beautiful.

  3. I think pots are great, you can move them around to fill gaps. A few grouped together make a new feature. Love that big blue pot.

  4. Hey Tanya, I love your garden, it looks so great o big, the image on Heucheran with almost white leaf is so fine. Have never seen so pied leaf before so amazingly beautiful. And in the last post with all kolibri pictures .. I also want a hummingbird, but unfortunately, our climate is not so good for them. Do not think there's hummingbird at the zoo even here in Sweden but I would love to have them in my garden that you have .. so jealous. Take care / Moa

  5. Hey Tatyana girl, your containers and garden look so awesome. I love all the green accompaniment. The photo with the Ivy Geranium on the pedestal is my favorite. It looks like it belongs in a magazine. The Hosta and Heuchera photo is also divine. But that very first photo of the purple Petunia is the nicest photo of a Petunia I think I've ever seen. Big time kudos to you. Hope you're enjoying this rare thing called sunshine!

  7. Tatyana and her enchanting gargen! That's how i see it. I most especially love the lobelia whites and blue, very elegant in that arrangement. You have many blues, which are personally attractive for me. I just need a chair in a corner near that arbor to have coffee and a magazine/book, and i can stay the whole day contented!

  8. Oh my Tatyana, your containers look just stunning! I love the container itself close to the entrance of your house that you have planted with petunias, very unusual and elegant. Did you designed it yourself? By the way my jaw dropped again, seeing your front yard, it is so incredible beautiful. Also the strawberry container planted with lobelias and succulents is spectacular. It would have never occurred to me to plant lobelias and succulents together but they look great as a pair. Now I just want to ran out and plant a new container for my own little garden :-)! Thanks for the inspiration!

  16. Your gardens-containers and all-are such a feast for the eyes. I'm surprised all the garden bloggers didn't come to your garden! It would've been incredible to not only meet you and perhaps the boys but to see this wonderful garden.
