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 arm chair traveller 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.
