Great pics Blazey, I especially like the first one!!!

I wish I could say that gardening was one of my hobbies, but I tend to quickly kill every terrestrial plant I buy. Even aquatic plants aren't a sure thing with me, LOL!

Gorgeous Gerbera daisies, celosia, New Guinea impatiens! They look great in the same container too. I love container gardening. I had about 20 pots on my deck last year! They are like tanks - you can't stop with just one!

Great pictures!!

I am the same way An t-iasg. I started off a few weeks ago with a couple of nice gerbera and african daisies and a mixed hanging basket and now I have 3 more baskets, 4 window boxes and 3 big pots, all that i have planted. This is all on a pretty average sized apartment-style balcony. The worst part is that they are all spending the night in my living room because there is a chance of FROST here overnight!!!

Oh, and I picked up another tropical for inside...

Great pics. I have several flowerbeds and pots and hanging pots filled with flowers both annual and perennials. I love gardening. I am working on the planted aquarium with some success but not like the outdoor flowers. Glad to see others that enjoy gardening as well.

I rent my house so no gardening outside, but I have a lot of houseplants inside, and I really enjoy them. I have a container garden with 4 plants in it that I just put together and I really like it....should take a pic....

Love the gerbera daisies, they make me happy just looking at them!

When it quits raining and if we don't get the frost that is predicted I will get some shots of mine.
