Went to Sam's yesterday and some really cool plastic wicker planters for only $14.91 followed me home!

They are a little farther down in the thread

Big red sage and Texas bluebells

Planter 1

Sweet potato vine, pentas and lavender. We'll see how that works

Planter 2

Hibiscus moscheutos Luna Red and Monarda Fireball

Little baby Pam's Pink Turk's cap I got from Weldon at the swap

Hill country penstemon

Penstemon triflorus

Leucophyllum frutescens 'Heavenly Cloud'

I love that you can see the hairs on the flowers

Gomphrena haageana 'Strawberry Fields'

I also got this from Weldon at the plant swap

Fragaria virginiana

Native strawberry another nice shade ground cover

Cosmos bipinnatus 'Sensation'

My Ballfield garden

I love your ballfield garden! That's a great (re-)use of the water, adding such a nice splash of color. And the plants seem to appreciate it as well :)
