Italian Flower Pots

Posted by Gillian Gillies | 04 Jul, 2013 | 2 Comments on Italian Flower Pots

Continuing on this weeks theme of all things Italian (following my vacation) I thought I’d share some inspirational and just down right gorgeous pictures I snapped whist on my trip. I’ll get these up on my Pinterest board soon to share with you all.

The Italians really know how to plant containers – I have since coming home, added a big pot of lavender to the door at my back deck, this way every time we go in and out you get a gorgeous whiff of lavender, now I just have to find some half-moon pots to put at the side door, I’ll follow up with my findings.

Here’s a few (quite a lot really) shots of container gardening and climbing vines and trellis’ Italian style, enjoy!

Love the bold contrast of the chartreuse and the hot pink.

Car port in Rome……… you think you need building permit for one of these?

The gardens at the museum at Villa Borghese – love the planters mixed amongst the flower beds and the gravel paths.

Lavender, so much lovely lavender.

Love this shot.

Vintage townhouses in the tiny hilltop town of Corinaldo.

Lunch time view from the patio in Cortona.

Just gorgeous, terracotta, gravel, brick, wrought iron and greenery! Perfecto.

Love the hit of pink in this fairly stark alley.

So want to do this at my side door – this shot was taken in Volterra – the home of alabaster, so much alabaster if I could have brought home a trunk of alabaster pendant fixtures from here I would have done.

A perfect place for a herb garden – at your kitchen window.

Have to get me some similar shaped pots! The hunt has begun.

Simplicity at its best. You cannot beat a topiary.

Plants are hung everywhere are multiple levels.

Geraniums in Montepulciano

Feeling inspired – I hope so. Blog post on containers coming up next!
