Container gardens

I'm barely able to smell this, one of my favorites, gardenia

Sorry the sun was so bright it washed out the pics of vivid colors...or something like that

Of the 2 begonias, the one inside seems to be doing better. 


  1. I too love gardenias, has it been hot where you are, sure has been here, home depot has fooled me labeling two as hardy plants and now that they have bloomed I know they are not what I thought, I am sure they cant' make it in the ground over the winter.

    1. Yep, my neighbor put a gardenia in the ground a couple of years ago...didn't overwinter. They were nice in FL through winters though. I know mine is rootbound, so next year it will need a bigger pot. But yes, it's gotten pretty hot already this summer! Thank heavens for afternoon showers when they happen!

    1. Thanks Gary...I jsut brought the other begonia inside also, that sunlight may be pretty but it can cook a plant.

  3. All of the blooms look great. Your lily reminds me of one of mine but it won't bloom for a couple of weeks.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
