The Flowers are Planted

My containers and hanging baskets are filled now so will water, wait and enjoy the growing flowers.

Will spell this wrong, of course, but here is a mandevillea I got at K-Mart. So pretty. In the front kettle are some ornamental kale, dusty miller, little begonias & some pretty white trailing stuff.

On the front stoop - again some lovely fancy leaf begonias, lacy white plant, little begonias and sweet allysum. Watching over it is a kind of homely pink flamingo that has a bobbing head. My garden for 2009. (Click to enlarge)

I can attest to the fact that the flowers are beautiful, and will just keep getting more so....I am so fortunate to be able to look out my window as I type away and enjoy these!!!
