First, we put some deep purple Petunias in some pots by the entrance to the covered part:
Nice, huh? Oh, right! How about a shot of me sitting there!
|"Oh, please, Mom! As if I would!"|
She can be so accusatory sometimes!
|"Must not eat the Petunias... Must not eat the Petunias... Must not ..."|
Well, yeah. They look so seriously enticing, don't they? But I'm resisting. So far. It has a lot to do with my mom having eyes in the back of her head.
We also filled up the big planters with an assortment of colorful flowers:
To be truthful, we aren't sure what all is in there! Mom likes the taller blue, tiny flowers. Me?
|"I like these ones!"|
We also have some pots of Purple Emperor Sedum that Mom rooted last year - we're still figuring out where to put them.
|"You might want to move the blue pot, Mom. Really."|
She'd be lost without my advice and supervision!
I hope you feel nice and serene now -- if not, come on over and join us on the deck; we'll have you in "the zone" in no time!
