Memorial Day Flowers

Besides making the Red, White and Blueberry Pie on Memorial Day this year I also planted some flowers and I thought I would share some pictures.

The first one is in a sunny area on a corner of our back (east facing) patio. The plastic cup is our rain gauge. I planted a yellow snapdragon, two red geraniums, a pink cosmos and some purple petunias.

The second one is in the back yard between some trees and is in partial shade. For an unknown reason there was a slab of cement next to the fence between the trees. My hubby painted it brown and put the whisky barrel down and filled with potting soil. My job was to plant stuff. I put in some impatiens and coleus

 The third is not a whisky barrel because one of those would have been too big for our front porch. It also is in partial shade so has the same plants (just a few less impatiens) as the one in back.

I also have another whisky barrel out front at the right of our garage it looks the same as the back patio since it is in the sun (west facing.

My hubby has been GREAT at helping me keep them watered and some do get water when the lawn sprinklers go, but that is only three days a week and not a good soaking.

That is about all for now!
