Picking Flowers

This spring while shopping for flowers, I was admiring how pretty the hanging pots were at the garden store.
But hanging pots and the Oklahoma wind don't go together well.
Then I had an idea!  
Why not transplant them in my galvanized pots?

So instead of buying flowers in small four inch pots and waiting for them to grow, I popped the large mass of flowers out of the hanging basket and put them in my metal containers. 
It worked out really well!

Just look how full those tubs are! 

And the bonus...
turns out you get a lot more bloom for the buck when you buy flowers in hanging baskets.
