Oooh, I am so happy to have finally found these planter boxes, after a long search. Everything I looked at was either too small or too expensive, or the wrong color. These were from Home Depot and they were only $18.47 each, but brown. No worry, I had Dave spray paint them white with Krylon for plastic, which worked great.
Now the six volunteer Sweet Autumn clematis have been planted and in a few short seasons it will be as huge as this one on our west side. It will grow way above the lattice, up into the eaves of the roof, and bloom in August (here), even tho we cut it down to the ground every February.
I love an enthusiastic plant.
Every year I post photos of my water lilies in bloom and this year is no exception. We have a ton of them again. There are 18 blooms on the white pads and 13 on the pink. And the smaller variety of our lilies are just opening today. Notice the black dots? Frog eggs. As if we need more frogs.
The Larkspur (everywhere in the yard) is beginning to bloom, in deep royal purple and our transplanted Julia Child rose is big and yellow and sending out new branches for more blooms. Yay!
A pure white set of peony blossoms has opened for the first time this year. The one on the right houses a spider.
