I just finished reading Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons.
After a slow start, it captured me, and I have enjoyed spending most of my free time during the past week with the women of Fressia Court. I recommend it as a pleasurable summer read.
We still have not had much rain. Big storms keep threatening, but never quite deliver. Yesterday's short little spurt caused much more telephone and internet outages than rainfall. Thunderstorms are once again in tonight's forecast. Time will tell.
I am just loving this red celosia with these nearly-orange marigolds. The markings on the marigolds are almost the exact color as the celosia.
Here is the full planter . I also have the same combo in my 4 large planters at the entrance to the deck.
You can't really see them in this picture. That's OK, because I wanted to show you that the drumstick allium have turned pink.
More Tango lilies
The 4 Tropicana Black lily planters have had quite a growth spurt in the past two weeks!
Cannas are one of those plants you either love or hate...there doesn't seem to be too many in between opinions. My boss thinks these planters are ugly. I like them, thought I wish I had one other tall flowering plant in them. The Angelart Orange Nemesia I planted has already died out in every planter. ..even those I planted at home. If I remember correctly that was a Proven Winner. I was not the tiniest bit impressed with nemesia and won't be planting it again.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
