Blue Monday - Flower Pots!

Been trying to catch up on our spring planting - we've had several 90 degree days already so I'm behind!- and I stopped in at Ross for less the other day just to see and lo! BLUE ceramic pots! Priced from $7.00 to $15.00 (they go for $30 -$60 regular retail) I was thrilled like you have no idea thrilled!  I still spent a small fortune over the week (I kept going back for more) but they make me so happy everytime I pull in my drive way.

And we added little flags - for July 4th of course but we put them in early so on Saturday when our dear (English) friend Tim Cooper comes over to watch the USA Men's side play England in the World Cup Soccer- well he'll know he's on our territory ;-)

We've got a tomato growing in one, and basil in another.  The front of my house gets the best sun...

and this big pot on the back deck - I love this pot!  Tim just painted the deck too - looks great!  (except for those scratches I made last night dragging the pot out of the corner so it would recieve the rain coming down... and then I had to go confess that I'd just made a mess of his newly painted deck!  aiy - yi -yi!)

Linking up with Smiling Sally for her Blue Monday Blog get togethers-
come along and join us!

Those pots are just gorgeous! That reminds me...I need to get some new planters!

I really need to make more of an effort myself when it comes to that. I don't have a lot of friends with kiddos, so I really need to try to meet some!
