Getting Ready for the Show

These are my plants for the boxes on my patio and they are all getting ready for this year's debut in the sun.

First, my impatiens got a hair cut by pruning most of the long legs.

These Marigolds were started from seed. They are dressed and ready to go.


And finally, these are my German Ivy. I just woke them up from their warm winter's nap and they are getting their grove on too.


In a couple months, these will all be in their full glory and ready to adorn my patio for a Memorial Day cookout!! I can't wait!!!

I love ho you've kept everything going through the winter. I planted some Marigold and English Daisy seeds about 10 days ago and ma waiting to see little sprouts.

Susie..I have to be honest with ya. I can appreciate your green thumb..but once I read "cookout", I just got a vision of what you'll be having!!!

Fabulous!I wish I had the room indoors to have taken all of my things inside. Most have come back and are beginning to grow again. I was sorely disappointed to find housing here on post cut down 2 of my plants at the end of my row, thinking they were weeds, since they hadn't sprouted yet. One may not come back! The other sprouted from the base, and looks like it'll be ok. I hope!!! :(

Thanks for stopping by, your comments always make me smile :)

Ahhhh, I love spring. Except that I don't know what to do with all my plants... so I do nothing. Wanna come by my place and spruce them up, too? ;)

I can't wait for Memorial Day...my parents live in this old-fashioned neighborhood and they have this huge neighborhood picnic every year with a smoker--on a trailor! I'm drooling already...
