Most of my potted plants bit the dust this winter. I bought some new plants today. Not sure where I will put my African Daisy's yet. Maybe by the front of the house. I also need new pots. Some of the ones I have are so old, and starting to fall apart. We can't use Terracotta Pots here. It gets too hot in the summer and fries the plants. Anywho, here are the few that I bought.
I forgot to take a pic of the Fushia plant. First time I have bought one. They are so pretty, so wanted to give it a try. And of course, Cali had to help supervise.
Your plants are beautiful and I love the fuchsia. I wonder if they'd grow well in Central Florida now that I'll be able to landscape at our new home. Cali is a sweetie and I'm sure she's "supervising" well. 44 days ago
Those plants are so beautiful. I have used crocks. I put gravel in the bottom for water storage and drainage. I no longer make crock pickles, but crocks are so versatile I can use them for water barrels too. 56 days ago
Really pretty flowers! I bought a bunch our first year here, some flowering plants and 2 knockout rose bushes. They did really well as long as we were home and I kept them watered. When we left for 2 months in the summer, they had all burned up by the time we got home! So, I just never planted any more. 56 days ago
love fuchsia plants so do the hummingbirds love visiting them. love the new plants you purchased they are so beautiful. of course it is always special to see Cali and so nice she helps to supervise. i love to have potted flowers on the porch and pergola for the summer. gives me some extra exercise when i need carry jugs of water to water them. get lots of steps in when doing that.
did purchase a few flower bulbs and roots to plant and enjoy this summer. ground not workable in my neck of the woods yet. it is still frozen in places.
enjoy your day and your lovely flowers! 57 days ago
Yes, sometimes I wish I lived in a climate like SoCal... It seems so nice when I visit to be able to sit on the patio and enjoy what would be houseplants in my corner of the world, as outdoor plants. Well, yes we needed to bundle up just a bit on the coldest days... and they did have propane heaters that they could run.. I had almost forgotten about them. Am I the only one that tends to have a selective memory? and just remember the best parts ? So I guess that most of my houseplants would still need to be houseplants at least for a few weeks of the year... My perfect climate would never be TOO hot nor cold.. nor too wet or dry with perfect drinking water straight from the well.. Sounds like heaven to me. I keep wanting to buy a Fushia plant but I do not have a shady place for it to live, at least not where I would also get to see it and be easy to get to to water... just as well... I have too many plants as it is. This week my house plants required 4 gallons of water and 20 minutes to get the job done. But I do love my plants, Love your plants.. always do. Look forward to seeing some photos of your yard/gardens. Oh, so what to you pot your outdoor plants in ... or are they all planted directly in the ground.. you have me curious.. or is that nosy.

Love the plants. I had a Fuschia once. Put it in the trunk to take home. When home opened the truck and all the leaves and flowers were on the floor. Took the plant back immediately and was asked why I had damaged it like that! Needless to say, I got my money back. I do love them though! 57 days ago
