A Cool Container and a Stroll Around the Yard...

How's this for a container, a large coffee cup and saucer. I may put an Asparagus Fern in it for the front porch. Just took a quick stroll around the yard before it gets dark, this is some of what's going on here. Could not have possibly posted it all. Can't wait for my new plants to fill in, hopefully that will be worth posting about.

Dianthus



Allysum

Jacobina is getting ready for another showing.

I cut these Mums from another plant and moved it up on the hill, look how it's growing, standing up for the world to see.
Pansies


This hanging basket will be lovely in a couple of weeks.

She's trying to open, looks like a bonnet.





This is my little Radio Flyer Wagon, I want another one.

Petunias





Gerbera Daisy



These Begonias have done very well this year. I have a couple of containers with these in them.

Your flowers are really pretty! I especially like the pansies & petunias.

It is soooooo cold here, I hate it. All the open toe shoes have got to go. And there you are with all these flowers in bloom. Pansies are it for us here, but I dont' have any and hubby says he is not going to take the time this year. (I can't get down there with my knees)

What a joy it is to look at all these wonderful blooms. They are all so pretty!

I gave my mother-in-law a cup and saucer like that one year for Christmas. Those are great pots. An asparagus fern would love really great in there.

Darla,
Your flowers are just gorgeous! Will all those live into winter? Like Leedra said, out of all you showed, Pansies are the only ones that will survive here in zone 7. Must be wonderful to live in a sub-tropical climate! Beautiful cup and saucer, too.

My aunt has a very similar pot! Hers is striped though. I helped her plant it with some sweet allysum and daisies, if I remember correctly.
