Containers at GonSS

I realized recently that I hadn't really posted any photos of this year's containers.  The flowers are really filled out.  So, in no particular order (and not a complete showing), here are containers at Garden on Sherlock Street.

  1. Your containers are still looking terrific. A lot of mine (the ones that "feature" petunias) are so ratty now. I don't know how you do it in that heat.
    Love the variety of your containers. I love the rusty stuff and galvanized, don't you? Looks utterly charming!

    1. Thanks. If I can keep them wet, the petunias seem to like our heat OK. Although some that get more wind look less lush.

  2. All of your container garden plants are looking great. The darker colored petunia reminds me of a wave petunia but I have never seen it in that color. Your arrangements are good and the flowers all look like you are taking good care of them.

    1. The color seems to have gotten deeper as it got hotter. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Thank you for sharing your containers. Every one is so full and healthy looking. I have no luck growing things in pots. Wishing you both a great weekend.

  4. Wow! One prettier than another! I'd have difficulty selecting a favorite!

  5. Ah, the begonias are my favorites! I love them...but I'm rarely good enough at regular watering to keep them happy. (There's a reason I love native plants!) everything's looking wonderful!

    1. Thanks. I have three more containers of them in the house, but they get leggy inside so every year I start a new container and let some go.

  8. Your container plants are doing very well; much better than ours. I think the heart and dry weather are beginning to take a toll.

  11. I love the big leaves. What are they. the petunias are beautiful. A pot I planted a few years ago has a seed of the denim petunia had to have been at least 4 years since I planted it. And Carrel started watering and it is really growing.

    1. Those big leaves are angel wing begonias. I don't know that they bloom, just beautiful leaves. I bring those in for winter as a house plant.
