We've visited Cherry Ong's garden several times, and we know she's amazingly talented. (Refresh your memory HERE.) For the next two days we're going to focus on some of her best container creations. She says, "First I'd like to thank you and your amazing contributors for sharing all their gardens with us around the world. Great work everyone! (I second that--you guys are awesome!! -MG) I'm excited that gardening season has begun and that we can decorate our yards and decks with colorful containers and hanging baskets. I look to many local nurseries, malls, and neighborhoods (anywhere really) for inspiration every day. I thought I would share some of our previous concoctions for the last few years. Half of these pictures were made for my friend Sylvia (Cheng). I say gardening is twice as fun with a friend! Please enjoy!" Beautiful, Cherry! **Cherry sent in so many great containers that I couldn't fit them all into one day. Stay tuned for another inspirational batch tomorrow, this time hanging baskets and window boxes!**

***I'm getting so many great submissions, but I can always use more! Dig out your cameras, take a big long walk around your garden, and SEND ME PHOTOS! I love having more than I could possibly process to choose from. Thanks!!***

***One more thing.....have you always wondered what your fellow GPODers are like in person? Never thought you'd get a chance to meet them? Check this out.... While the GPOD isn't officially a taunton forum, it's close enough, and I wanted to extend the invite. Anybody at all interested? I'd be willing to search for some gardens to tour...
