Pretty Pots of Plants

It's so green here right now from all the rain we are having, and the flowering trees are just beautiful. It is a little cold this week but I had to get some plants for my little deck. Here are some herbs I potted up as well as a double impatiens which will be the permanent centerpiece on my tiny table.
I have a little plant stand that I want to spray black before I bring it out, and that will hold the herbs and some other plants I want to get. Of course, the stand WAS black several years ago but I painted it green. I'm fickle, aren't I?
I had to get a black eyed susan vine again this year, I loved it so much last year. I repotted it in a coco planter to match my other hanging baskets. The white plastic takes too much attention away from the plant. I like how these look unobtrusive, you don't really notice them.

***EDIT*** Here is the fully grown vine from last year, for those who were interested in it. Much of the time, this vine was just covered in yellow flowers, here it must have had some wind because there are not as many as usual on it. Can you see the white pot? ha-ha

My oldest friend Trish, who I knew since I was 5, came to see the house this weekend and she brought me this beautiful hibiscus. I might have to bring it in tonight, it's going down into the 40's.

Last week I visited my parents and the weeping cherry in their front yard was blooming. This does not do it any justice at all:
The flowers are just beautiful. By the time I visit again this weekend, they will be gone. I guess if they were always this pretty we would take them for granted.
Hope everyone is having a colorful springtime!

Hi Tracy,
That black eyed Susan vine looks really interesting. I have never seen one before. I will have to check if my nursery has one this year. I hope you and your girls are enjoying your new home, it is lovely.
