Flowers, flowers, flowers galore!

My husband’s school’s FFA chapter held another plant sale this week and they had reduced their prices yet again and now a 36 plant flat was only $3.00. Well what is a girl to do? I ordered a flat of red Marigolds, a flat of purple Salvia and a flat of Ruellia.  Today I spent most of the day getting the plants in the ground or in my containers.  They didn’t have a full flat of Ruellia so they made it up with three quart pots of Lantana “Buttercup” which really worked with my purple and gold theme.  Anyway when I counted up the empty flats today I calculated that between veggies and flowers I have planted 650 plants.  Methinks it is time to sit back and watch it grow.

First up the containers are filling in nicely.  First up Purple and Gold

Flowers, flowers and more flowers if this doesn’t keep the bees and butterflies happy then I don’t know what will.
