Earlier than we left on our journey, I made a visit to the backyard middle and rounded up my summer season annuals to plant in containers on the again deck and our terrace and pool space. Flowers make all of the distinction in outside residing throughout summer season months, don’t they? I can’t think about not planting my planters, they convey me a lot pleasure. The worth of vegetation has certain gone up, however I’ve to purchase them anyway for the pure enjoyment of all of them.
I spent about $170 on all these vegetation, which is far more than I ever anticipate it needs to be.
I selected the identical vegetation to go in all 3 of my large planters by the pool and these all got here from Residence Depot. I like Caladiums, so these are paired with calla lilies and the inexperienced spike plant, in addition to a trailing Tropical Dawn Superbells Calibrachoa. I haven’t grown these earlier than, so will see how they do. I hope the calla lilies will bloom all summer season.
They certain look fairly all planted up. I needed to get them began earlier than I left to allow them to begin rising in and getting larger for the warmer summer season months to return.
They need to all unfold out and take over the planter finally. As you possibly can see, I’m a pink lover relating to flowers. Pink shades are my favourite and I can by no means resist them. These caladiums are simply attractive, aren’t they?
