Your containers have filled out beautifully, Kathleen. My poor pots still look pretty pathetic -- it's been a horrible summer weather-wise. If not unbearably hot and humid, it's been wet and windy. But they're still a splash of colour on the deck. :)


I love all your containers and I'm pretty happy with mine too. The pink penta, pink zinnia, blue sage combos are pretty and attracting butterflies.

My gardening is on hold, maybe for the rest of the year. My father's health isn't better and all my energy is going there. I'm lucky to find time to keep them watered. One day at a time...


You do great containers Kathleen~I like mine~especially the Lemon grass I've been using~double duty food and pretty as a thriller-filler, it's planted with lantana, salvia, a variegated ground ivy and a few purple leaved perennials.



I do not have any containers, but I am enjoying yours and the amazing things you do with them.

You have such a wide variety of container plantings, with lots of different designs. The container by your front door is a real eye-catcher. The colours combine so well, and I love the shape it makes, with the papyrus light and air on top the large Croton, the smaller coleus and the flowers cascading over the side.

I put a lot of double flowering tuberous begonia into all of my containers this year. My favourite one has Colocasia 9elephant ear), begonia, impatiens and lobelia. My second favourite has a tall calla lily, with begonia and lobelia.


Your containers are always so colorful and interesting. I would of never thought of combining some of those plants in a pot. :)


You really have a flare for containers Kathleen, they are fabulous! It's funny, but one of my favorite containers is the last one I made with odds and ends. I didn't think there was any way they would look good together, but by adding one little touch, it has grown into a lovely one indeed!
