The Dahlia Experiment

After buying some dahlias 50% off, I plant them early August to see if they will actually bloom. Blackberry Ripple Dahlia Bristol Stripe Arabian Night Babylon Red **Please don’t judge me for the books I read!!

The Moonflower Planter update

Remember that video I posted Saturday? I believe I created that planter Memorial Day weekend. Here’s that planter now. I used a bamboo trellis for the Moonflower vine. I love the fact that the Wave petunia is starting to trail.

Purple Passion

I removed the pansies from the front railing planter and replaced it with Supertunia Bordeaux and Superbell Grape Punch. Both plants get huge. I can’t wait for it to start trailing.

The Yellow planter

This is the first real planter that I’ve done. These are plastic urns from Lowe’s. I followed the thriller, spiller, filler rule for arranging planter. The thriller plants are freesia and snapdragon. The filler is coleus. The spiller is superbell lemon slice. I got all of the plants from Lowe’s.

First rose bloom

The first rose to bloom this year was the Crocus Rose by David Austin. I was surprised to see that this rose had such a pink tint to it. Last year, I recalled the blooms being cream.
