I made 2 of these breast cancer containers and found the Survivor's Grow tags online. They contain pink columbine, pink forget me nots, and pink thrift.

Thanks Charleen - I don't have much luck with potted plants outside for some reason. I had pots full of calla lily this year and they are slowly croaking.

I think you are right, I think the little pots are just not healthy for them. Now do you have them mostly in shade? I think I will move mine this weekend!

I have them in several places. this one is partly shady. got some more but they are not blooming yet. Got too many Cleome around them. Bet they love the competition in this weather, we need rain.
Here is those same Callas from another angle of the creek.

He is a beautiful, sweet obnoxious pup and I love him.
When I go out to work in my garden I have him and a chicken right in the way, He's wanting to be loved and she's looking for bugs.
My garden Buddies. Then when my big dog comes over I may as well forget it. There is no room for all of us; in each others way.

Candy, those are lovely potted combinations. Do you use soil polymers in your potting mix? I used to do long, rectangular "rail riders" year crammed with mixed annuals for our entry deck every . No time for that now Sad plus they rotted and DH hasn't quite got around to building me new ones. Sad

Charleen I love your long, low dog! Looks like he's posing just so... I have to figure out what kind of bog plants might work out here in part shade and then how to construct it. I looked on the linked thread you posted elsewhere and didn't recognize one plant.

Sun has finally emerged in the NW and I'm getting out to enjoy every minute of it!

Annie, check out this link. they are located in Oregon, I believe and they leave their plants out in the winter, of coarse they have tropicals but you can ask them what will be right in your area.
You have a great day outside.
