Gardening is Good for the Soul and Mind

Hello, When I moved into my house, I inherited many big pots in the yard from the previous home owner.  Lately, I have been toying with the idea of container gardening, so that the pots do not go to the dumps.  The idea is perfect for urban dwellers who do not have yard space for a garden.  Even if you have a yard, the different creative arrangements in the pots can add more interest to the landscape.  I got inspired after visiting the gardens at Filoli House in Woodside, CA a few months ago.  The setting is in the countryside which in itself is beautiful, but the gardens on the property are even more amazing! 

I also found these helpful links on how to plant and design a container garden.  Happy gardening!  Until next post......
