Lovely container garden, Lorraine!

I love candytuft & cilantro. They both resow themselves & then I save lemon gem marigold seeds which are small flowers but profuse & don't seem too affected by rain to fill in all the empty spots between my purchases of petunias, calibrachoa & verbena. Marguerites are the favorite wild daisy here. . .

Snapdragons reseed themselves all over the place without effort. These volunteered in the phormium which I struggle to save each winter. Must be kept dry, then they can tolerate cold.

Thanks Grant. This spring has been superb for Pacific NW gardeners. We can work all hours without getting too hot! I just downloaded photos for my mother on her "picture wall". She should love these brilliant colors as that's where I got my green thumb. Her patio at the assisted living keeps her going. . .The purples are all brilliant this year.

Just love these azeleas.

I prefer a color scheme.  In my pots on the deck, the theme is red, white and blue.  In the front yard, it's pink, white, true blue, and light lavendar. 

I decided this after seeing my mother-in-laws garden.  It was such a mix of colors and unmatched plants, that it just wasn't appealing.

Grant - your flowers are gorgeous - I love the yellow one - reminds me of a flower fairies would love to have in their garden!

Karl, Thank you for the photo's. My daughter and I visited my sister and family years ago in PA, and she took us to Longwood Gardens... We both still have pictures we took hanging on our walls at home and I have a few in my office at work. She got hooked on photography because of that place and the pictures she took were awesome!!! What a wonderful place to work!!!
I'm envious!! I don't even have a window in my office, but lots of great pictures!!!

Thank you Karl for the link to the beautiful gardens at Longwood.  Your photos are just gorgeous.  What a fabulous job working at Longwood, you would certainly never get bored with all the changing flowerbeds over the seasons.
