I hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather was gorgeous here! I spent most of my time outside working in my flower beds.
I went to WalMart on Friday and their garden dept is amazing! It is so full of lots of beautiful flowers and garden vegetables. Well, I couldn't help myself I ended up buying a few more plants to put into a couple of containers for my patio.
I got an old white pot that's been hanging around my scary garage that was filled with big ugly spiders. I cleaned it out and filled it with my favorite Miracle Gro potting soil. Then, filled it with my new flowers and it turned out sooo pretty!
I planted Caladium which is the plant with the big leaves and green vein looking things running through it. I also planted Sweet Potato Vine which is the bright green leafy plant on the bottom right. It will eventually (I hope) cascade down the side of the pot. There is also Calibrachoa, it is the full plant with the small white flowers that is already hanging over the sides. There are also two pink begonias in the back. The big tall dark spiky thing in the center is called "Red Star" (Cordyline). Seriously, two of these plants I had never heard of before and that's the Calibrachoa and the Red Star.
Everytime I go to a garden center I find something new. I never get tired of going to Garden Nurseries. Every one of them are different. I ALWAYS find something I can use. Here is a close up of everything in the pot.
I want to talk to y'all about how I come up with arrangements and colors to put in containers. I will save that for later on this week. Happy Gardening!
