How Does My Garden Grow?

Now that the weather is just right for planting. I bought some small rose plants, succulents, and annuals 
and went to work this past weekend. 

 My garden space is very limited do to the amount of clay soil that I have. There is no getting around it, I have a clay problem... This year I thought instead of planting in the ground, I would make individual gardens, in pots.

 Whenever I plant directly into the clay, and no matter how much good potting soil that I mix with it, the clay 
takes over. So, hopefully this "pot planting" idea 
is the trick.

A Fascinator is a headpiece. The word originally refered to a fine, lacy head covering. Bigger than a barrette, modern fascinators are commonly made with feathers, flowers
or beads.
In modern usage, it referes to a  woman's alternative to a hat for formal attire; it is usually a large hair decoration on a band or clip with elaborate trimmings and decoration like a formal hat and can incorporate a base to make a
miniture hat.
They can be worn towards the front of the head or
on the side.

These are my creations
