One of my Loves

This morning I went with  a  neighbor to Vintage Hill Farm to buy plants for our yards and I needed some succulents for my Mrs & Mr planters, Susan, my neighbor thought that would look good in them . I agree.
First I want to show you around this place which had the most fabulous pottery and planters. I always like anything with a face on it , so showing them first them I will show what I purchased

                                 look at the 1/2 face planter


                               iron frogs with crowns                            
                             ball of moss
 On   our way out of town we stopped at the garden club's sale and I bought a flower pot for $1.00
Then we passed a sale that said Plant Sale at a ladies house and I bought some plants that I can't even tell you there names, I forget easy  , not familiar with new plants LOL  anyway the leaves smell so good, some kind of germanium I think ?

Then I worked a couple hours getting my planters filled and then had a nice rain on them

So here is the planter I could not leave behind, I named it Dancing Ladies

I absolutely love it , I have a smaller planter that matches it , I bought a few years ago , not sure what I will put in it, any suggestions?

I put succulents in the smaller dancing ladies

Then here is the Mrs & Mr planters with their succulents in them I think as they grow out it will be wonderful to look at

      Susan is digging up a large hydrangea and giving it to me
We both could have spent a small fortune there

    1. they were sooooooooo cute and of course now I wish I had bought one $8.99 each, and a 35 miles drive back over there

  2. Oh, that is just the one that I would have picked!!! I love those gorgeous dancing ladies! The flowers all looked divine, no wonder you had a hard time choosing. I can never remember the names of flowers either, I just know what I like!
    Beautiful find.

  3. I love them all...Happy weekend...janice

  4. That is a most amazing place. If they weren't so heavy I would order some. Love the one you purchased. Your Mr. and Mrs. are so cute. Mr. does not look very happy. Maybe he will feel better when his hair grows out. blessings, Ginger

    1. Yes my Mr planter is not a happy man, LOL but I thought together they are so charming, maybe he doesn't like the outdoors?? LOL

  5. Looks like a fun place. Thanks for sharing this with us this week at the Sunday Round Up Link Party.
    See you next week,
    Rose @

  6. I love gardens, garden ornaments, and interesting containers. Lots of eye candy here for me! Thanks!

  7. Oh it's wonderful when we can share our flowers, thats what my post is about today too. I love the pot you chose--those ladies I think would be pretty with Gerber Daisies is them. I love the pots that are heads, I don't have any of those but I may be looking now.

  8. What fantastic planters!

    I will be having a Mother's Day giveaway this next Friday with glimpses of whats up for grabs all this week. :)

  9. What an amazing place and such planters. Thank you for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  10. I love your Mr and Mrs planters...beautiful...all of them!

  11. I'm glad to see that dancing ladies planter - I have 4 pieces from a broken one that I use in my garden as art. I got them out of a friends parents garbage pile at their farm!

  12. I was trying to follow your blog...but there is no follow button on the top left...that is usually how I like to follow blogs...I get too many e-mails if I follow with e-mail all the time...and I dont really do the google thing...blogging is getting so many things are changing all the time. Usually I feel I am pretty good online...but I cant always keep up with the changes. Do you know why you dont have a follow tab on the top? There is Share...Report Abuse..and Next Blog...but no follow. Dont worry if you dont know...but I have come across this lately quite a blog is I do love that head planter. Ballard designs has one...but it is much greener with fake moss on it...I like it better more greyish. Thanks for your time! Peace, Laura

    1. Laura I am so sorry I don't know what to tell you, I was ask to put the follow by email on and then of course I have linky & google.
      I don't know how the word FOLLOW gets at the top left, I don't think I have control over that, unless someone else can help with this ? and tell me how to add it
      thanks for coming over , hope you come back

  13. Thank you for visiting me! I just love this time of year and visiting the green house. Yard art/statues love it all!

  14. Beautiful flowers! I like the pearls on Mrs. Planter!

  15. I love your Mr and Mrs Planter's!!!! Blessings, Tammy

  16. Just stopping by to say Hi..May you have the best week ever my friend..Hugs and smiles Gloria

  17. Oh I'd love to have one of those "head" planters... how super cute those would be with plants hanging down as hair... neat!!

  18. What beautiful statuaries! I love the Mr. and Mrs. I just found an image that I pinned with a grouping of the head planters all filled with succulents...they looked incredible! Now I think I want to find some!

  19. I know what your plant is called that smells like geranium. I'll think of it in a minute. :) Thanks for the tour of the nursery and planter place. That was fun and I love what you bought. Our Farmer's Market opens today and I am heading out to buy plants shortly. And I want to find a special planter for the back door. Hope you have a wonderful day and visit when you can.

  20. It looks like you had so much fun! Very cool planters

  23. That was a lovely birdcage! Did you get that too?

    There is a link party going on in my blog today. I would LOVE for you to share this post :)


  24. oh, just how much fun is that place??? What a fun place with a fun selections of planters...which we had a cool selection like that around here! Places like that we can wonder in all day :)

  25. many wonderful treasures there! I could spend all day wandering around there....and then figuring out how to haul it all home! lol! I think your large dancing ladies would look so pretty filled with blue salvia or spilling over with Million Bells!

    xoxo laurie

  26. What a wonderful place. I've seen the head planters, but the dancing ladies is just so gorgeous! I wouldn't have been able to leave it behind, myself. thanks so much for coming to the party!!

  27. I love your planters, especially your new find, the dancing ladies. Beautiful! Sounds like you a fun day finding all kinds of new treasures. Thanks for sharing on Simple & Sweet Fridays!


  28. Looks like such a fun place to shop! I love garden centers and could spend hours - and lots of money - there. ;)

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday.

  29. Thanks for the Mr. & Mrs. alert! Succulents will be wonderful for them especial when they fill out this summer. All those other head planters were gorgeous but I know they are so pricey. I have not planted my Henry yet for spring and I determined to find him a Henrietta this year. We have frost warnings for tonight so I have to cover stuff again to night, I hate that! Thanks for stopping by, Laura

  30. I have bought 3 garden heads so far for my cacti and succulent garden. I need 2 more. Got a gorgeous one at Brimfield. Once I have all 5 of them and they are planted I will blog about them. Yours are realy great:)
