My Garden Urn In August

I’m so glad I take pictures to document my plantings each year.  It gives me a good way to remember how each plant did in its location.  If you remember, I shared one of those with you last month in this post ~ the urn by our garage door.  Here it is when first planted at the end of May, 2015.

The next time I documented it was on July 8th.

And here it is on August 16, 2015.  It’s amazing that it continued to grow so much more a month later!

As I said in that July post, this is coleus, licorice plant, and purple geraniums.  Just two of each plant!

I think this combination is a keeper to do again next year!

Wow, how beautiful!! I'm really jealous. It's been so hot here that most of my container gardens are barely hanging on. You've got the magic touch. :)

Hi Kathy, the summer growth is gorgeous in your urn. Love the combo of plants together. Nice contrast of colors. When I find something that works, I use it again the next year too.
Have a great week. cm

Wow! They grew wonderfully! I had to replace my flowers in my planters last I week. I had geraniums and they died on me.

Hi Kathy, your urn looks really pretty all filled in. What a great combo of plants you've chosen. I really like the licorice plant.

Sorry I haven't been around. I've had some health issues to deal with and had surgery last week. Just got out of the hospital and am home recuperating.
