A Peek Into My Pots

 
Good afternoon friends,
Last week I said that we
would be going to a public
garden but...then I changed
my mind.
As my post title hints we
are here at my house today.

The three above are on a
bench in front of our porch
in front of the swing--Left
to Right: A Marigold, Purple
Salvia, and a Carefree Mix
Coleus.

 
An Alligator Tears Coleus
sits to the right of the swing.

 
This is a Wizard Jade Coleus,
it is on the opposite end of the
swing.

 
A lovely Red Geranium
leads you to the back
yard.


Opposite the Geranium is
a Veronica Begonia and a
Twisted Red Celosia. Next
to these is a Renee Michelle
Azalea.
 

As we move out the front
door, I have a Sweet Potato
Vine, Purple Salvia and
a small Fern on the landing.
 
 
Next to the front door on
my ladder is a Kingswood
Torch Coleus on the top
and a Bloodleaf Plant on
the bottom.

 
Off to the right of the front
door is a Lantana and another
Coleus (twin on the deck).
*The wagon is mine from when
I was a little girl.

 
Going down the stairs,
another Geranium, a
Blackeyed Susan and
a mixed pot of Yellow
Marigolds, Purple
Petunias and a Red
Geranium.


Last but not least, Another
variety of Sweet Potato Vine.

We do container gardening
here because our soil is so
acidic and without amending
it A LOT nothing grows! There
is one exception to this and
you will see that soon.

So there you have it a peek
into my pots!  :)



~Keep on Dreaming~
