In the back

We had some amazing rain storms this past weekend. I know it meant flooding for some, which just totally stinks (why is it one or the other, Colorado? Why can’t you be moderate?), but we were unaffected and got to just bask in it’s power.

After large storms Friday night, I spent Saturday morning in the yard taking in the smell and coolness the rains brought. I also took some pictures of the plants going crazy in my pots.

I have two clumps of pots on opposite sides of the deck. Each side gets very different sun and, therefore, very different plants.

On one side (various colors):

Look, ma! I’m growing Impatiens!

Coleus going crazy! I love those leaves!

I’ve only just recently come to love marigolds. Just look how bright and happy they look!

And on the other side (all pinks):

I love hot pink geraniums!

And hot pink petunias!

A pot of Lantana and Calibrachoa.

Could Lantana be prettier?

So vibrant and bright!

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
