This is my entry for the  Picture This Photo Contest  offered by Gardening Gone Wildweb-g

Living in upstate New York doesn’t make it easy to have container gardens  in May.  We had a hard frost just two nights ago.  I put my plants in the next day though because the weather is supposed to be nice for the next week.  I like to live dangerously!  It’s Memorial Day this weekend, it should be safe by now.  Thanks for the opportunity to participate.  Plants and pictures are two of my favorite things.  Happy Spring!  

Flowers in the yellow pot are geraniums, coleus, dianthus, lobelia, red mandevilla vine








Adopt the pace of nature:  her secret is patience.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

  5. So many people now do have the skills to provide what flowers need. Even florists seem to be terrirble. My husband brought a lovely present for me which was the largest flower bouquet I have seen.
