Cottage Colourful Plantings

We had a beautiful and productive Memorial Day weekend. Although the weather was almost 90F in town by the lake it was a breezy mid 70s. Just perfect for gardening and getting things done.

I planted the wheelbarrow with colourful plants and flowers yesterday. I added some herbs to the herb planter and put that into the wheelbarrow. We can see it when we have our meals overlooking the lake. There were many boats on the lake this weekend. Perfect weather.


The window box on the shop that I planted last weekend is looking fuller already.



I also planted beef steak and cherry tomatoes. I'll take pictures next weekend.

Have a great rest of the day... Judi xoxo

Love the wheelbarrow. How great to have the herbs too. You have such a pretty view of the lake. That window box is wonderful. How I wish I had one. Mike is against it though. So glad your weather was great. By the way, those 2 flags are just perfect! Love how that looks and what it means.

Hi Judi,

Your lake view is gorgeous! LOVE the wheelbarrow and the window box full of flowers. Glad you had a wonderful weekend. It was a hot 90 degrees here too.

You put an American Flag in your box! How sweet! I love the look of the Canadian flag so much! I think of maple candies, or maple Dare cookies when I see it! LOLOL!

Your flowers look gorgeous! What a view from your cottage!!!

Hello fellow Canadian blogger. Our west coast weather is not very nice right now and my peppers and tomatoes are shivering in their boots.
I am sure they are getting enough water though. Maybe you could share a little bit of that sun with us.
