Back porch and wheelbarrow

I am working on flowers on my back porch. I love the weathered look. I really enjoy the look of flowers and greenery spilling out of their planters.
My husband has done a great job of planting the planters for me, now I just need them to grow and spill out!
Also we have a wheelbarrow, I love to pack it full of plants so it looks like a mix of things. At harvest time I plant it full of mums, and at Christmas I fill it with poinsettias, little Christmas trees and white lights. I just love it.

Here is the small Christmas tree in it from last December with a few pansies around it. We have a store nearby who plants little miniature roses in the bathtub planter, mini ivy plants, baby's breath, little plants that spill out of the tub, then little signs, with little plant trellis'. It is so adorable looking. I will try to get the picture and post it.
There is something heavenly about watching plants grow into beautiful blossoms and plants. Even God enjoyed planting a garden. In Genesis 2:8 it says "The Lord God planted a garden in Eden..." Boy would I love to see the kind of flowers and blossoms he grew!!
