These are in a few planters near my summer reading chair and surrounding a birdbath, so I get to see a lot of bird and insect activity. There's Texas Sage Hummingbird Forest Fire Red Salvias, Canary Wing Begonias, Coleus, Red Bronze Leaf Begonias, Over Easy Million Bells, and Potato Vines.

Thank you everyone! Right now I'm torn between taking them down since they're still blooming, but I don't want to risk having to do it when it's freezing outside, so they're still up for now! The backyard looks so barren once all the planters come down that it takes awhile just to get used to the sterile look.
