The back yard.
Certain Man has a leak in his roof above the deck
He has plans to repair it and change some things.
Stay tuned for progress reports.
One of the shrubs in the back yard is this Rose of Sharon
Another shrub is a snowball bush
My Asparagus fern is Blooming!
I didn’t know they did that!
My favorite container garden
A coleus bloom from my favorite container garden
A “whirlygig” flower from the same container
Another container of which I am fond
The blue Salvia are blooming
More of the same
A small pot into which I tucked some leftover Verbena
This is a very old container, and the flowers looked better earlier in the year
(even with a recent application of Miracle Gro)
One of my fuschia flowers
New Guinea Impatiens
More New Guinea Impatiens
Another container that has cockscomb, sweet potato vines and two colors of verbena
The two colors of Verbena
Last year, for Lem and Jessica’s wedding, I had lots of coral Verbena.
This is the only plant this year, but it is sturdily coming along.
Vinca in a hanging pot
Phlox in the side garden
Some more Vinca by the walkway,
My Friend, Ada, gave me this cheery, sturdy plant.
It has bloomed its heart out for me.
The oldest planter of all
My sister, Sarah, gave this little statue to me several years ago
These don’t look like much, but I am so pleased with them.
I got a whole lot of baskets of Vinca for three dollars each, and these two
looked so yellow and spindly when I got them, but they have filled out, gotten green
and are just plain nice to have!
Another of my baskets. This one is lopsided because
the other night when the youth group wanted to make ice cream,
I caught some of the Coleus with the hose and broke it off.
I was disappointed, but not devasted.
I have another small pot that is one of my favorite, too.
It has this yellow cockscomb tucked into the back of it
Then it has this begonia in it too, that is the main focus.
It sits here on my old church bench and garners its share of comments.
I love this old yellow watering can.
Thanks for stopping by!
Come again –in person the next time.
