Smile Tropical container plants

Am I the only nut who snow-birds and buys a bunch of flowers and pots them up for winter beauty? Or takes some favorite tropical potted plants from home with them? Indoor and outdoor plants have always been a hobby of mine. I really am into decorating our winter campsite with a temporary fence and hanging baskets and bird feeders.....

When we leave in the spring for home, I always give a bunch of potted flowers away to other campers. Those I bring home are planted in my flower garden.

I love having plants around, coming from a cold winter Province in Canada, the novelty of having flowers, in the desert, in winter is too much to pass on. Hummingbird feeder is the first thing to go up when we arrive. Good idea to give plants to neighbors when leaving as we cannot take across border

I can relate to that. TN winters can be pretty nasty too. Dark for days. Drizzly. Windy. Snow flurries and icy roads. Bleah!

Just buy cheap plastic pots at places like Dollar Store or Family Dollar. Or bring old used plastic pots from home. Look for flowering plants on the Bargain tables at Lowe's and Home Depot. I almost always find markdowns. The other campers appreciate getting pretty flowers for nothing. Last winter I planted some flowers around a tree right in the CG, with the owner's permission. I don't have the room in our RV to bring them all home. Maybe now with the Class-A and toad I can bring more home.....

I give the sunflower seed to whoever I see with bird feeders.

I have a planted Plumeria tree that I started during the winter and it's slowly starting to leaf now.

I plant to add more plants soon.

I've already collected some older well used pots to take with us this winter. We'll also be bringing some really pretty tropical foliage plants to liven up the site.
