Our hotel is hosting a production crew and actors for a fishing reality show. Sasquatch is making commercials for Jack's Link's (beef jerky ), the main sponsor for this show. He has been spotted all around the town doing all sorts of crazy things. The whole town is enjoying our week of fame. We cannot wait for the shows to air, beginning in January.
Since I had my camera at work, I snapped a shot of one of the four containers I do each year.
There are a couple of Tropicana flowers almost ready to bloom. The creeping jenny has been gobbled up by the Ipomeoa. Jenny is not as aggressive as I had hoped. I really wanted that shot of chartreuse to hang down in the front.
Here is a close up of the foliage plants -- Persian Shield, Coleus, Ipomeoa and licorice plant instead of Jenny in this one.
This container is on my porch at home and Jenny behaved beautifully. Of course the container is shorter and has no Ipomeoa.
The licorice plant shows up nicely in the containers flanking my garage.
I will have to remember to use the golden licorice plant instead of Creeping Jenny with Ipomeoa.
I always enjoy my containers in late August when the perennial garden is pretty much done!
