wine barrel GJ

alaMel(4a)June 6, 2011

So I actually did this a few weeks ago. I just didn't think of it as GJ. So after two days of hoping I wouldn't get accused of a dui, this is what came of it. Plants in this are coleus 'kong mosaic'(front corners) and 'festive dance' (ringing front center), geranium 'elegance brovo'(rear focal), impatient 'super sonic sweet cherry'(next to geranium), begonias, petunias, sweet william 'wee willy mix' (front focal). Can't wait until they fill this thing out. It sits between bleeding hearts and 'raspberry splash' lungwort flanking both sides.

What a beautiful combination of plants. I love the colors you chose. And its nice to hear you weren't stopped for a DUI, LOL. Then again, wouldn't the cop's face have been priceless when he looked in the back and saw half a wine barrel! LOL.

hugs, Karen
