ArrowFew containers and a flower bed


Some containers that the wife purchased from Garden Ridge(great place to visit)










This is the flower bed around the Ash tree. Two rings of Tiger Lilies(ditch lilies), and some Hosta's around the outside(unknown variety).

Same here. And we are expecting another hard freeze this week.

Those containers in bloom are freaks of nature or something....okay they were probably started in November or something at the nursery. Anything that was already in the ground is still in the greening stage.

Can't wait to see those lilies around that tree! Should be quite the show....I hope.




Thanks for looking!

That is a petunia. Don't know any more than that, here in the northeast they are the standard you find at all the garden centers, home improvement stores, etc.

Talking- Pretty!


Those are some great looking containers Scott,
I'm just now beginning to plant my containers, the chilly nights have slowed me down this spring,
hopefully the weather will be more cooperative from now on.

I can't wait to do containers, just too soon here. Our frost date is around the 15th of April but I don't really trust that this year. I try to wait until Mother's Day.

Scott, pots are terrific! Little bit of envy here. LOL

The plants are great...I LOVE GARDEN RIDGE. We don't have one here, but anytime I am close to one, I have to visit. I found the prettiest mosaic bird bath there the last time I went.
