The Mosquitoes are Out in Full Force Again

What's up with that? It's bad enough we have them early in the season and now they are back just as strong. Geez........I gave up a lot of blood in the few moments it took to take these pictures.

A couple of days ago I bought a big bright blue planter. I thought it would be fun to use as a focal point someplace. This afternoon I tried to find a place to put it. I think this area may be the spot, but it needs to sit a bit higher. I will play around more with it this weekend.

I like this gold, red and orange combination of plantings.
Do you see how that bright blue planter leads the eye way to the end of the path? I am thinking if the planter was a foot higher, the blue would show better and that would be great.

My miniaure phlox is starting to bloom. It's the purple one in the front with the white face. I forgot its name...."Little" something.......

That's about it for new blooms.


  1. I bought the exact same blue planter this past weekend! It looks beautiful in your garden.

    Um, you can keep the mosquitos, we have some down here the size of a small jet.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. What a coincidence, Sally! Did you get it at JoAnne's?

  3. Would be nice if the mosquitoes would at least deliver to the blood bank.
    I agree Zoey you want the planter a bit higher..beautiful blue color at the end of the path for your eye to follow.

  4. The blue pot is pretty there! It's unexpected because of the color.

  5. HI Betty and Dianne,
    Thanks for the comments. I have not yet figured out how to get it up higher...a couple of cement blocks would do it, but they would not look very pretty....any ideas?

  6. Zoey:

    I got the planter at Home Depot. Then I put a cold tolerant plant that I hope will make it through the winters.

  7. Beautiful garden shots1 The blue pot is perfect! Jean
