This barrel is filling out very nicely. I am quite happy with the brilliant red celosia--not so happy with the small orange and yellow celosia. As you can see, they are too small for the more aggressive plants and are getting overrun. I will remove them this weekend while I can still salvage them. I am also not very happy with the Persian shield (in the back center behind the red). Supposedly it is fast growing, but it has barely grown at all in the past 4 weeks.
It's Too Hot to Garden, so I Stayed Inside and Worked on a Quilt - All I need to do now is make the binding and it will be finished. It will such a feeling of accomplishment when it's done!
