Pots are Planted!

During the cool mornings I've been out getting my pots filled.
I have limited flower space unless I want to tear out more grass. When we first moved here, I started digging it out little by little as there were NO FLOWER BEDS. Wally took pity on me and helped dig out more. I didn't need all 9,000 square feet of that grass. And that's not counting the pasture grass.
Most of the annuals go in pots. 
Lots of pots!

Geraniums with alyssum.

The mini roses continue to bloom. And I see the grasshoppers are back.
Roses are even pretty to me when they are fading.
The white roses are magnificence in miniature.
I've had a wee bit of help from this little guy and his brother/sister, too. They are hopping in and out from around the pots and wake me up! Happy Gardening!

I'm linking to Today's Flowers with thanks to the team!

Isn't it early for grasshoppers? Well, I guess everything is early this year! Your pots look great - lots of work there. Sally

Hi Marilyn,
Your pots of posies look wonderful! I love the roses! Those little toads are so cute, aren't they? I used to catch them and my brother and I would have toad races when we were kids. Then my son took an interest in the wee creatures and now his little guy does! I find it so endearing how this love of nature and its creatures are passed on from one generation to another! Hope you have a delightful week, my friend.

I'm glad it's the toads not a bull snake! Love you

Gorgeous blooms, I would much prefer the flowers over the grass. Beautiful photos. Have a wonderful day.

Donna said...

Your flowers are gorgeous! We always need a "helper" in the garden.

Very pretty flowers - I look after the yard but don't bother with flower pots and my wife doesn't either, so our landscaping is pretty basic.

Rebecca said...

Sweets...this is the 2nd blog I've visited today showing a FROGGIE! :)

I love your potted flowers...just LOVERLY!

Howdy from Kansas!
I love your gorgeous white roses....they are so beautiful!
I think toads and frogs (also snakes) have my respect. I stay out of their way.
Sweet blessings to you,

Linda Stubbs said...

I enjoy our roses also! Yours are gorgeous! You are going to enjoy your summer with all that beauty!
Hugs from the farm, Linda

I have somehow given up on my outdoor plants. Just about the time I'm ready to deal with them, it's sweltering hot outside. Ugh.
So good to see you dropped by! Loved hearing from you - guess school is out?
I wrote a reply on my blog to your comment but know unless you're following you won't see it. I admire your life of faith through the loss of Wally. I think that's a huge testimony to and of the LORD in you life. Thank you for that!
Hugs, Jenn
