Getting Ready For Summer Fun With Plants And Decorations

What a week or so has been around here on the mountaintop! It seems like a long time and also a slow time. Each time, that I’ve thought Bob and I had planned enough for the summer plants….well one of us has changed the plan. That would be me…guilty of thinking one more plant.

Please tell me, that you do the same. One more color of this or that. Remembering that this year, Bob and I actually decided it was time for red flowers. So red flowers are here, but so are some other old reliable flowers in our favorite color…yeah, salmon impatiens are in the 12 deck boxes and several pots. Nothing at all is arranged as hoped at this point. Probably will be week after next, before we have it dressed for the summer. That includes rearranging the porch furiture and another thorough cleaning of that ugly yellow pollen.

Can hardly wait to see what y’all are planning and planting!

Happy times ahead! The geranium above the gate has grown a lot already and still is shocking us with beauty! Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a message if you follow me on Linky Follower and I will follow you back.

  1. Hi Helen. Your flowers look so nice and red is so wonderful as butterflies and hummingbirds love red flowers!
    Happy Mother’s Day to you,
    Shelia 😉

    • Hi Shelia, you are exactly right about those hummers and butterflies. They always love our deck boxes and we love watching them. Thanks for the Happy Mothers’ Day wishes and sending the same wishes to you. It’s a foggy one here! Helen

  2. That red geranium is looking gorgeous! And your color combination of red and salmon sounds great. Hope your Mother’s Day was a good one.

    • Thanks, Jane! This is the first year, that we have added the red to the salmon and hope it will work well. I did have a great Mother’s Day and hope you did, too. Thanks for dropping by, Helen
