then rocks are placed around the edge of the pot. We have it placed
along side of the pond -- so that it looks like it's coming from the pond.
You just need to keep water in the pots, and they love lots of hot
sun!

This is one of of the two pics I could find, but I'll keep looking.
...notice the lovely big leaves.

Yes, I was referring to the zen thing. I did not know the proper spelling of it, so I winged it and the auto correct still did not what I was typing.

Re: our garden flowers


Ah, feng shui...I bought a book on it...tried it in our house, put a lot
of stuff away, but eventually it found its way back. Well, I just can't
achieve the less is more look ..I do love the feng shui philosophy.
however, "more is more" is 'more' fitting to my personality.

The head guy is as guilty as me...our handle should have
been "two much stuff."

Re: our garden flowers


Do not regret one bit of it TK, of the effort and money spent and enjoy it while you can. My wife and I at every one of homes did too much planting, as we enjoyed the flowers/bushes etc. so much.

Now at our age and living in the last home we will have, we have neither the funds nor the energy to do the nice landscaping. All we have now for good show is the Rose of Sharon that were here when we moved in.

So I just bang on them in the Fall so the seeds will drop and get new ROS in the Spring to transplant around where needed. We have about 30 ROS now along the back of the yard in a "grove"...

Your landscaping sure does make our efforts look puny in the attached pics that we did on our second of our five homes we renovated and then sold to move onward.

But hey, I grew up in a home with mostly dandelions , critter bones, chicken feathers, and dirt for yards, so my landscape design creativity has been "handicapped". .

Re: our garden flowers


Greg , your yard looks great, beautiful flowers, are you able to
keep your canna outside over the winter? We take our in the house
in November.

What Zone are you in...We're in zone 7...although it is suppose to
winter over in zone 7 -- it didn't do it for us.

Re: our garden flowers


They over winter for you then!?!
We'll have to try leaving one out this winter.

I can't view any of the pics...I just see an empty box,
Hope it a forum issue and not my iPad.
I wanted to ask you what the reddish-purple flower
plant in the flower box is? I love it. I think it was in the first pic?

I was just fixing to say I can't see any pictures because I am online in "safe mode" because windows 10 keeps trying to update every time I go to desktop or am idle for a few seconds. I sure hope the pictures show up, that would be a shame not to be able to see them.

Re: our garden flowers

Re: our garden flowers


Try to post the pictures again, the forum just made the move from one provider to another.

Re: our garden flowers


Jim, I'm not sure which photos I posted, I have so many.

Also, how do I post more than one photo in each post?
I seem to not be able to do so?

This is one of our deck pergola hanging baskets...
I love Tuberous Begonia's. Problem is the squirrels like to
sit in the Begonia pots.

I used to love wandering Jew hanging baskets too...
one night I saw a leaf in the basket and went to pull it
out...The scream was heard around the Island when I
realized that I just pulled out a bat!

Re: our garden flowers


More water gardening (in deck pot - behind feeding rock) and
baby cardinals feeding from pots that we
filled with sunflower seeds.

The cardinals build their nests in all the shrubbery
surrounding the perimeter of the property. They are a constant joy
and will feed within a few feet of us if we sit quietly.

The parents continue to feed them until they are fully grown
adults.
