The Old Ricketty Chair

Is Back!

I had planned to toss it last year, but after DH sturdied it up a bit, I decided to give it another whirl.

It's not all that lovely at the moment, but let us not judge until mid July after it has time to fill out a bit.

Don't you just hate having to wait so long for container plants to fill in? If you ever watch the TV gardeners plant containers, they look lush and full right from the start because they don't start with 6-pack annuals. They use 4" containers and larger. It's nice to be able to do that, but VERY, VERY costly.

I did 4 containers at work this year.
Two like this

As you can see, I am not nearly as frugal with the company funds. LOL.

These big planters look pretty nice already and I just did them 2 weeks ago.

I used 4 nice sized Tropicanna Gold callas and was very surprised to see one blooming already.

The other two planters are not as full. I am going for foliage here and very little flowers. Only the calla and the Scaevola( hanging in the front) will have flowers. I have 'Ruffles' coleus and 'Purple knight' alternanthera which should fill out nicely. At least that's the plan...


  1. I love what you did with the chair and the wreath hanging from one corner is such a wonderful added touch...it will be awesome once everything is fully bloomed!! I also love the planted pots you did!! Beautiful!

  2. Gorgeous planters! You have the gift girl!
    Blogger is being weird with photos today and some download and some don't. I can't wait to see your chair too.
