Planter weather

May 15th has passed and it is safe to plant the annuals. This year we got 98% of our annuals at the public market for 1/3 the price that we normally do. Hopefully they will do just as well. The key I think is to get to the market before Labor Day.

We chose pink, orange and yellow flowers for the planters. Darren was gracious and let me choose the colors. I like 'em hot.

When the pots are full, I'll post some pictures.

Darren gets full credit for the yard.

Let me testify that when I was visiting these pots shown here were truly beautiful as was the whole yard! It has inspired me to come home and work on my yard. Don't know that I actually will, but I am inspired! I bought some plants with Marina in Hilliard, Ohio, and brought them home. I stayed with one color theme, corals and oranges, but oh, they are beautiful. I want to put in a water feature and fence off an area that the dog can't get into, so I can enjoy my swing and small garden without worrying about him eating things up! I'll let you know how things progress.

That's about the time that all our flowers start to die.
