Post 9: Pots and Hanging Baskets used around the House and in the Garden

___________________________________________________________________________

Note: I would like to share with you through these few words, photographs, and hyperlinked websites, a 3 Dimensional experience as though you were actually there with us. Click on any photograph and it should enlarge to different size ….. at least half screen or size full screen. It will be clearer in detail than the photo on the post. It will be as if you were really there looking at the actual scene. You are an armchair traveler with us.

The one real advantage of growing pots and hanging baskets and placing them around the house is that they can be readily moved. Special plants are grown in pots and when they flower,  if suitable, they can be moved to a more central situation to be enjoyed.

 …. Pansies with their big colourful blossoms are grown in pots in the Cottage Garden Room  …..

…. in the original Creation, our Heavenly Father created these so that you

would enjoy these.  Beautiful flowers were not created for animals

to enjoy but they were created for human beings to enjoy.

The  Psalmist David says: Psalm 19: 1- 4 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky displays what his hands

have made. One day tells a story to the next. One night shares knowledge

with the next without talking, without words, without their voices being heard.

Yet, their sound has gone out into the entire world, their message to the ends of the earth.

This means in practical terms, that being in nature is meant to be like you

reading and meditating on the Scriptures (Harriet and I have a Christian Spirituality).

….. The Clivia lily produces striking red tubular flowers. The red flowers contrast

sharply against the dark shiny green leaves. It loves a little shade.
