My ever abounding Hollyhocks.
One small plant came in one small ice cream bucket and now they are everywhere. Spreading by seed and root. It is going to be a job to get back my south side landscaping, slow but sure, it will come.
I had Jim and my mom make this planter while I was pregnant one summer, I think with daughter #2, actually I'm pretty sure it was then. It is exciting to see plants come up each year, not knowing if they survived the winter cold. I did a whoops this spring, planted bulbs and for what ever reason, chose to plant them upside down. Like, really?, no wonder they are not popping up. I am quite bummed out by this but went through and turned them right side up. I wonder how much damage I've done. I'll have to wait and see. Possibly even until next year.
Day lilies (red, yellow, orange), Iris' (purple, yellow, yellow/maroon), Light Pink Peonies,
And lots of purple flowering plants that I can not remember the name of. Cheers!
This to the right is a Spuria Iris, I have not been able to make this bloom. I think it is time to move her. The left is tall lavender phlox, which has not been blooming.
This container is next to our garage, and since the bottom rotted out, she'll be there until her sides give way.
One of my many container flower garden, this is two layers and have loved it since i made it this way two summer's ago. I have always loved Petunia's, especially shades and tints of purple. I have them in quite a few containers, most are doing quite well!
I'll be posting later in August, to see and show you if my Allium actually did come up to bloom and give you a peak at some of the other fun container garden's I have put together.
