Hi Rita

I just noticed your comment. *Blush*

Yes, the Hummers love all the flowers! They love the double stacked tomato cage I have set up for them too! They'll sit and scan all the flowers in the containers and gardens! Lovey dubby Hilarious! Thumbs up

So many layers of color here, it's amazing. I have some of those colors and hope to get a similar effect--but how? Did you plant many and thin over time, or did they grow into each other that way?

*Blush* *Blush* *Blush* Sorry I didn't see the last comment til now.

All the flowers are in containers that are at the end of our side entry driveway. Container sizes were a couple 16 inch, some 20 inch, some 24 inch and a few extra large tubs. They grew into each other. I didn't thin them at all.

What you're seeing isn't all the containers of flowers. There were more on the left of the pic and more to the right that didn't get shown.

Here's a few more pics of that year (2012).....
