Sprucing up the backyard with planters

In all my excitement yesterday, I didn't show you one last planter pot that I purchased this week.
Isn't it gorgeous! It's a hand painted and hand thrown pot. I love all the detail on this one. Not sure where I'm going to place this planter, inside or out. Though it will probably be in the house somewhere.

Here's one side
hand painted oblong planter pot
 Here is the opposite side. I put some Pony Tail Palms in to see how they would look.
Remember my planters that reminded me of pineapples that I posted about yesterday? Well guess what I planted in them?? Yep, some Pineapple plants. I've had these pineapple plants in my greenhouse growing for the past 6-8 months and it was time for them to find a new home. When I seen the pots, I knew at that very instant that I had to have them just for my pineapple plants. I think they fit just perfect.

In all, I planted up 4 Pineapple plants. I still have 2 in the greenhouse but they're not quite ready to make the move outdoors. Here are the ones that I did sitting around the pool.
Ignore the concrete planter with the Asparagus fern, think I will be moving it to another location.
Here are the other two placed on the opposite side.
What do you think about the Kimberly Queen fern in the hand painted pot? I didn't seem to get a good picture of it due to lighting. Sure wish I were a better photographer, that is for sure.
 I had fun showing you some of my new pots. Now it's time for me to get back outside sprucing up the backyard and planting more plants into my new pots.

From the Heart,


  1. Love all your pots and plants. They look gorgeous!

  2. The pots look great and add a lot of color. Your poolside is looking fun and festive. I don't if I'd heard of a ponytail palm before seeing yours, but the name is very fitting....they look just like a ponytail. Do they get very big?

    1. Sharon,
      Thanks, the Pony Tail palms don't get very large, about 3 foot tall which is great for in the winter, they won't be too large to bring in the house.
