I have a few bags that turned out great this year. Do you have any? I find wax begonias the easiest to grow in bags

Joanne, do you ever fail, seems to me everything you plant turns out beautiful. Lovey dubby

I wish I had your green thumb... Do I sound jealous.. I try not too but yes I am. nodding

However, I bet you work a lot harder at it than I do. Rolling my eyes.

@Joannabanana where do you get the bags? Those are awesome!

Beautiful plants!! Would sewing together an old t-shirt work? But then I can imagine a brown streak from excess water down the fence.

I think I would like to put 2 bags hung like saddle bags over my mailbox? Maybe portulaca, something that doesn't need a whole lot of water? Great idea!

I was a little apprehensive to come here because, well the title could have been anything. lol. @Joannabanana.

Those are just lovely. I had two years ago when they were new. DH did not like them on the house. I agree, I love begonias grown in them, Impatience are my favorite of all. Every one of yours looks beautiful. They must need more water than baskets?? Do you use any moisture gels?

That flower bed has exquisite combinations. I think you should come spend the summer with me. lol. Beautiful job every inch!
