Another week and I'm glad I have a 'water boy' lol. My MM is getting a little tired of dragging the hose, but I'm the one that's gone all day. Hope they do okay next week when there is no one to water. We'll see. For now most everything is the same as last week but flourishing. So enjoy my flowers then head on over to Tootsie Time to check out the other participating gardeners.
First off is a petunia at my Mom's. Little Peanut is just loves taking time to smell the flowers.
The hanging basket is doing real well. It's getting wider and wider. The colors are fabulous.
The trumpet vine is really trumpeting and attracting lots of hummingbirds. Should have gotten a close up.
This is a view I love when I come up the driveway. It looks so full and colorful. The welcome I need after a long day at the office.
Hosta's all around the property are blooming. This batch is out back next to the lean to.
The cone flowers are all blooming nicely now. I love the colors, but have a question about their care. Should they be staked or otherwise propped up? The ones in the back stand up okay and one of the ones in front is pretty upright, but the other one is pretty much laying down. Should it be caged or something?
The Bee Balm has got a few blooms but my picture is real blurry, the coreopsis is still blooming beautifully and the blue hills salvia is a beautiful striking blue. I won't be able to participate next week (won't be home to take any pictures), but hopefully the week after that I'll still have a few live plants to report on lol. Have a GREAT week.
