And when you get enough pots planted and they are all on the floor/deck/ground you start to wonder, "why didn't we look for plant stands while we were out and about?". That's what goes thru my mind when I have to bend over for all the potted plants on my patio floor... Whistling

We are on our way to Enchanted Nursery this morning, so we will keep your idea about plant stands in mind Bev. Big Grin
She still has one stand that needs pots of some kind on it.

Will defintely keep that in mind. We do have one stand to fill up still. Although the warning from my husband this morning was to not get too many more things that need hand-watering as when Mom leaves they may not get water. Shrug!

Hurray! We got the retro pot stand done yesterday. Hurray!
Three kinds of sedum, a plumbago, violet and dianthus.

They have already grown in one weeks time. We'll take another photo tomorrow.
We had so much fun shopping for plants and putting the containers together.

Thanks Aunt M. We have been having so much fun Smiling Glad everyone is enjoying the pictures! Will have a post in the rose forum as we have been working on the back garden wall retrellising the roses. Will also have pics for the new bed we created for the semps and sedums that we brought from Mom's. She has now gotten me addicted Hilarious! ...we'll see how well they do in our hot dry southern new mexico environment nodding We put them in a bed that gets filtered sun, so hopefully that will keep them from getting fried.

Good luck on growing all your plants. Hurray! Hurray! I complain because i do not get enough sun, due to overhanging trees,
so I hope your full partial sun works for you. I am sure Lynn has taught you about shade cloth. I may try to use some
for the first time this year to mitigate the afternoon sun that hits my rock garden.

We will be looking for periodic updates and this forum is great for expressing your angst when they don't
do/look so hot. Hilarious! BTW - my extreme heat last year fried some of mine without direct sunlight.

Just being able to tell someone about your progress is also gratifying.

If you are going to have an addiction, gardening is a good one to have. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

See you in the funny papers.....
