I don't have much of a garden anymore, but what I do have is doing well. The mandevilla lost all of its buds after I repotted it, but look at it now. Such a glorious pink.
I just leaned the trellis up against the wall and put the pot in front so the vines can climb. I have some low plants in the front of that pot plus two other containers beside it. There is a pretty hanging basket right near it, also. When I glance out my sliding door, I see this pretty little mass of flowers. Good for the soul. (Click to enlarge)
