Beauty in a pick-up truck...

We spoiled ourselves by buying a truckload  full of hanging baskets and plants at our local greenhouse.  They have the most wonderful flowers & prices.  Can you believe $10.  for a huge  hanging basket?  It was a delight to pick out flowers there.   Some of my favorites are lobelia and coleus.

We are hoping for a sunny day to plant the bedding plants.  I already got a nasty mosquito bite on my  neck just from moving pots on a shady part of the patio.  So....overcast  days have me remembering to be careful..to wait for hot sunny days to get working outside.

You really got some big beautiful plants! I recognize the petunias..not sure about the others but the white sure is showy. I hope it's nice this weekend so you can get things planted! Sweet hugs, Diane

They're beautiful and they look pretty charming in the back of the pickup!
You got a deal. Mine cost $24 each!
