I was at the garden center the other day with a friend and saw this adorable container garden filled with a mixture of spring and summer flowers.  I think this would make a cheerful display on the deck or front porch, and it’s ingredients are all garden center staples you can find easily at your local big box store.

If you want to create your own reproduction here’s what you need: Dusty Miller, Pansies, Violas, Petunias, and Gaillardia.

This arrangement will work from mid spring through early summer, after which time the Pansies and Violas can be swapped out for other summer favorites like Snap Dragons, and Daisies.   Try your hand at this quick display, and create a softly colorful container garden for your favorite spot.
