Summer garden containers…

These photos of garden containers were taken in summer when parks and residents and patios vie to put out well decorated and inviting outdoor garden containers. My favourite are those that have a mix of colours and textures, heights and assortment of plants, with some trailing plants that create a whimsical look. The containers themselves can enhance the whole theme of the arrangement, creating a modern, rustic or minimalist look.


Isaiah 68:4 - But now, O Lord, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.





Container gardening…

For those who do not have a garden, a lawn, or an area to grow flowers and vegetables, there are lots of ways to indulge in your love for plants. Container gardening is the way to go – find your favourite pot or container and fill them with seed or your favourite flowers or vegetables and watch them grow and spill over and provide you with joy. You can get the same pleasure out of container gardening. Be adventurous with your containers. I have seen old recycled tyres, kettles, a washbasin, a hat, a shoe be fashioned into containers that hold a variety of plants. Try different arrangements, practice with plant and pot colours, move your containers around to form designs, in short – experiment.










Amos 9:14 - And I will bring my people Israel back from exile. They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit.
