While Out Watering...

I snapped a few photos with my small camera while
watering Sunday night...
Almost done...Pink Knock-out Rose..

I just love my Vincas...So perfectly simple in design but so stunning en-mass and close-up

And the variety of colors is so fun...

Lock on my suitcase planter and some marigold buds.

Partly open "Everlastings"...I never seem to have my camera with me when they are fully open.

The Black-eye Susan still displaying strong...

A Zinna is such a delight with it's 2 "flowers" in one...

And it would not be watering time in the garden without a little mud monsters help.

I miss my mud monsters, they're all grown up though they still live here. We rarely see them, though.

Love the flowers, I have never had luck with vinca, I don't know what I do wrong, but it's just never thrived here. Yours is beautiful.

We now have puppies to play in the mud and run through the sprinklers! I miss the water fights with the kids though.

I really like vinca too, it's one of my favourites for containers and handles drought really well.
My point and shoot amazes me with some of the good shots I can capture as well, enjoyed your photos.

Kelsie, You're right about the vincas. They are so hardy, spread readily and are lovely. I will plant more next year than I did this year. Are the everlastings straw flowers?

What a great idea to use a suitcase for a planter! I love the colors in your garden, too. Thanks for sharing at the Tuesday Garden Party!
