Hey Kathy, A nice presentation of blooms. The driveway pots sure filled out since I was there this past spring...everything has. Amazing what a week or even a day does to fill a garden! Happy GBBD.

Beautiful display! Thanks for taking the time to share with us.
I love this idea, and I've got it on my calendar to do as a blog post for next month!

Looking forward to see your blooms next month, Jonah.

Helen, the pots are bursting out - had to pinch the coleus back a few times to keep it in bounds - letting it grow a bit now as the county fair is comingup and I notice other coleus entries last year were quite large.

It all adds up, doesn't it? :) The window box looks great, as do all the containers. Thanks for sharing! ~~Rhonda

Thanks Rhonda for stopping by -- hoping we get some rain here so I can stop lugging out the water for those containers. Guess I got spoiled by all those rainy weeks!
