Your garden looks really pretty. I like the five blue pots. They are cool. But of course Gracie and Lacy are the best!

Hoovb, those blue pots are an experiment I'm doing...
I'm hoping those Morning Glories fill out more and flow around those pots...

I planted zinnias out front this year until I figure out what to plant permanent in that location. Probably roses but their going to have to be no bigger then 3ft, blackspot resistant, and just all around tough for that locale.
Those are young Spilled Wine Weigela's on each end...

One of these days things will come together...lol

Thanks DizzyLizzy! Here's a pic of those two stalking a bird together... Luckily Gracie our pet dog is like the cats big shadow and scares the birds away before Lacy our cat pounces on them... :-/

Wow! I've never seen such a blue petunia. I would buy that in a heartbeat if it were here.

Your KnockOut rose looks fabulous!!

Hi Carol and thanks, I bought a handful of those blue petunias and planted to see how they do... Like everything else the blue color does fade a bit in the sun...
