Containers at GonSS

We've had the nicest rains at Garden on Sherlock Street that we've seen in a long,long time.
The containers got planted right before the rains started.  They are all settled in now and starting to grow.  Here's a photo gallery of the containers.  More rain is in next week's forecast, but today the plants and the people are enjoying some sunshine.

  1. I'm in awe of your beautiful containers. You've really outdone yourself this year. It will be fun to see them grow--I know you'll keep us updated.
    Glad you are getting much needed rain.
    We finally had a gutter installed on the north side of our barn, and hubby set up a 300 gallon stock tank under the downspout. In one 3/4 inch rain, it filled it to the rim. Hooray!! I'll have PLENTY for my garden with that baby!
    Have a wonderful week.

    1. I didn't do many containers last year with the tighter watering restrictions so I'm making up for lost flowers I suppose! I had my favorites to purchase and then just grabbed colors I liked. That's an awesome amount of rain water to have on hand. Glad for your garden too!

    2. It is amazing just how much water can come from the roof of a house.

  3. GoSS, don't you just love this time of the year. Every thing is so fresh and beautiful. My Iris are starting to put on a show as the lilac has ended. Peonies are very close to blooming. They are so lovely. My one in the back yard has already started blooming and is my favorite of the two that I have. It's a lavender color. The one in the front yard is white. Once the Iris and Peonies are done blooming, the yard is pretty drab except for the poor man's living patio which is covered with hanging baskets of impatiens and small containers of begonias, dusty miller, and coleus. In the fall I have some hostas that flower. That's much below your constant display of flowering in your yard.

    The garden is doing great so far and hopefully will continue to grow well. I'm glad to hear that you have received the much needed rain in a well behaved way. I do hope and pray that continues through the summer for you. We finally have received a break in our rain pattern and are receiving some much need time to mow the grass. It's been a challenge in May to keep the grass and weeds under control. If it wasn't raining, mowing needed to be done. I don't like mowing wet grass but this year there were times when it just had to be done wet.

    Have a great day in your beautiful yard.

    1. Dave, You should try some salvia and black eyed susans. Just cut them back in the spring so the new growth can look good and they flower most all summer. A butterfly bush does the same thing only it's taller. They'd be easy ways to get some pollinators to your veggies.

  4. You really did show us all up Lady. I love your pots. I have not finish mine yet. We have had rain at least 4 days a week and like David said it has been hard for Carrel to get our yard and the two lots next door mowed. I told Carrel I hoped The Lady in Kansas was getting rain. He thought I was crazy I had to explain you are a blogger friend. I did get my blog back, I wrote a page then they blocked me I just kept trying until I won.
