I am not a fan of creosote but that is a beautiful scene. Lovey dubby

sck- that is a pretty scene. I had given up on impatiens several years ago when they all got some disease, I recall it was something that kind of went nationwide. The local murseries now sell very few. Yours look just fine-maybe I will try them again.

Very pretty! I love all the colorful blooms! I've given up on impatiens, too. Mine never got full and beautiful like yours, but I probably didn't keep them watered enough!

Very beautiful! I have impatiens -in my garden for the first time in several years. They have them in our nurseries. They are thriving again.

Does anyone know if the threat of the impatiens disease/fungus is resolved? I know not all nurseries stopped selling them and I've switched over to begonias for the past few years. It would be nice to grow some impatiens again.

Good to know. Since I have a shady yard, I used to do all impatiens with some seed-sown Browallia thrown in. I do like Begonias but it would be nice to mix it up with some impatiens. I think this is my 3rd or 4th year not growing them.

I planted begonias this year. They are not doing well. Maybe because I let hubby plant them?? Rolling on the floor laughing But the impatiens he planted are thriving.

Nice to hear that impatiens are thriving. Er - sorry about the begonias?
My begonias generally do okay if the chipmunks don't dig them up. They like digging up new stuff so I employ a big jar of cayenne pepper to discourage them. Sometimes it works.
