Flowers on the Deck

When filling these hangers on the deck walls I usually get one thing right and a couple of things wrong.
This year I decided that the one thing I usually consistently goof on is choosing flowers that need plenty of watering.  Ummm.....I have very good intentions but.....

So, this year I decided to put flowers in that prefer drier conditions.
Guess what?
It rained every day for nearly a month.
You know, that afternoon shower that totally soaked the planters.

The poor plants kind of struggled.
They struggled until this week when we have had hot humid days
but not much rain.

Finally they are beginning to bloom.

We'll see what the rest of the Summer holds for them
but for now I think they are pretty cute.






The foggy conditions are a result of bringing a air conditioned camera 
out into heat and humidity.



Inspired by Vee's window box post.
I LOVE window boxes but this is as close as I come.

Gorgeous! I even like the misty quality of AC meets hot and humid. Isn't that always the way with trying to figure out the weather? I quit. I'm not even going to watch the weather reports.
