How about sharing some long shot pictures of your gardens? This pic isn't really a "long shot" cause it is part of my minij-bed, but it does show multiple plantings of hosta.

Thanks Susan. And I just picked up 6 more at Big Lots a couple weeks ago. Hurray! I just have to replace a section of fence that I want to put them on so I hid those from myself in the enclosed patio on my garage. Hilarious!

Maridell - I like the flowers up against the white wall - really shows off the colors. You have a couple of nice garden companions nipping the catnip too.

Maridell you have lots of curb appeal as well. The container on the front porch is a real knock out!

CJ I had to put a tomato cage around the catnip...the girls wanted to lay on top of it Hilarious!

Thanks Susan, Sometimes petunias get to looking kind of ratty late July, and I'm happy with how they are doing.

Very pretty gardens! The weeds are taking over in my gardens. It's too hot to care Angry Even my pretty hibiscus blooms are wilting before I get home to enjoy them!

I love,love all the pictures.I will post some pictures,soon. I have to figure out how to do it. The gardens here are weedy too,but it is too hot for us to be out there long.We didn't get enough rain today to soak the tubs & pots,so it took me an hour to do those. I was dripping.

I forced myself to go out last weekend and pull weeds. My husband said he would help me put down new mulch afterwards...well, the mulch is gonna wait till the temps are more tolerable.

Looking forward to seeing some photos from you Doris. Smiling
