The whole Blogger being down this week issue has sort of messed with my blogging mojo. I feel a little out of sorts. Not trusting that my posts just won’t go up in smoke again.
What’s a girl to do? Plant some flowers.
When I was deciding what to plant in my flower boxes that flank my front door I wanted to do something I hadn’t done before.
Petunias – yawn
So I went orange. I never thought of orange before, but when I walked into the greenhouse I was drawn to the Dreamsicle Superbells and I knew that I had to incorporate them into my planters this year.
I mean, what’s more refreshing on a summer evening than a Dreamsicle. Or a Creamsicle. I guess they are the same thing? You know, the orange Popsicle things with a white ice cream like substance in the middle.
So I started out by yanking out my grass plant from last year, which I had left in the planters for winter interest.
Last year it was much more colorful. You can see the entire summer front porch HERE.
So do you use orange in your garden?
