My Pots Runneth Over





We have had a most unusual summer for the mid west. Cool July days and an abundance of rain.



Usually by this time of year my pots would be panting for water twice a day and my annual hanging their weary heads.



Not so this year. My pots and annuals are exuberant.



This Stargazer Lily stood out in the crowd at over 5' and put on a beautiful display.


A Princess Diana rose turns her face to the sun.



Rust and gold lily's hint at the colors of autumn.




A burgundy Dahlia and a Goldenrod huddle close for an intimate conversation.



A myriad of pots cozy up in a corner.


A pot of red, white, and blue.




Love the red Geraniums baking in the sun.

Impatiens loll in the shade.

Red saliva sprawls out of a basket


An orange Zinnia shines in the sun.


My Pot does indeed runneth over.

Beautiful!
My poor pots are doing poorly. Not enough sun in May and June, and lots and lots of rain, I think they got root rot.
Perking up a little now but not much.

You are very Blessed! Each and every flower an amazing beauty!
