What a sweet inviting area. I dont know about your season but I believe containers in a bed like yours probably saves the plants in that they get watered odten instead of waiting for rain.
I like your 3 tiered group.What a great impact those petunias have.

Love all the pots. Since I have to put 99pc of my plants in pots, it is great to see how well you have put them together.

Thanks for sharing. Especially like the window boxes. Wonder if I could do that.

What can I say? WOW doesn't do it justice.
Joanne I just love what you have done with all the containers. I have to keep going back to look at all the photos again.
I love the window boxes and the color combinations you used. Love that giant dragonfly.

I agree with you about the Supertunias. They are stunning.

Joanne invited me to visit her garden on Sunday.
It is just amazing---I walked around and then just sat there to take it all in.
All the plants are growing well and healthy,
and her artistic flair is well demonstrated by her arrangements.
Her roses are really something to see as is her vege garden.

What a shame! Joanne.
Your plants were so healthy----I am sure that they will bounce back.
But it is disheartening for sure.
The storm did not hit us here---seems it hit the south part of the city.
