    The Planting Part Two

    Here are the photos from yesterday's work.

    Front of the house. The orange flowers are Crossanda while the others are dward Snapdragons. There is also a clematis in there that we planted when we first moved here. Below the planter are containers with Wave Petunias.

    We liked these Keter planters so much that we bought a new one this year. We get them at Menards. This one has geraniums at the rear and petunias in front. Again, the bottom containers have Wave Petunias.

    This bed is our climbing rose, which we cut back pretty sharply. At the sides of the planter we put in Zinnia seeds and plan to put in Marigolds at the front. Again, we put Wave Petunias in the bottom containers.

    We put in containers of Lavender in four pots. One is next to Cheryl's hibiscus while straight back in front of the peonies are the other two. The fourth one is out of the picture, but its next to the one in front.

    Finally, this is the Black Eyed Susan vine. This will be the first year we've tried to grow a vine like this. So far, so good.

    We ended up not going to Lowes today, so we decided not to work outside. It's cloudy right now, but so far no rain. I still need to get out and feed my roses.

            Beautiful planters Rob! You and Cheryl have been working hard. It'll sure pay off soon.
            Rainy days are for quilting. Thank goodness I live in a rainforest! 😁

              You've been hard at work. The past several years I've cut way back on planters & flowers. I usually buy 3 large planters of geraniums for the patio, & 3 purple fountain grass, which I have to plant in planters. The flower beds are mostly perennials now, & I've cut way back on them, too. I just couldn't keep up. A few years ago I had the lawn service remove 3 beds & plant with sod.

                    I have never heard of a black eyed susan vine. I'll have to check that out. It all looks beautiful Be sure to take pictures as they fill out.

                      Its scientific name is Thunbergia. We have seen them before, but this is the first time we planted one. Will definitely update when things start growing.

                      Those look great & I love the planters that you are using. Before long everything will be in full bloom & just beautiful. I only have two plants in pots....an ornamental black pearl pepper plant & a Crown of Thorns. I wish I had lots & lots of flowers like you.
