My Hanging Baskets
I have lots of hanging baskets and they all are different. I keep thinking they have hit their peak, take photos and then they get prettier. So, here are some photos I took a few weeks ago.
Hard to believe I brought all these plants home - little, itty bitty things the end of May.
I got them all planted in my baskets and had to keep them in the back kitchen patio until the last week of June. I had to bring them in EVERY night. June was just plain rainy and cold, it was 8C most days.
It wasn't until the 1st week of July that I hung them out front, facing the Bay of Fundy winds and left them out overnight. Here is a photo of them from July 4. I have geraniums and upright petunias in the middle that are now full and bushy! I also like to put begonias in my baskets - they add alot of greenery!
Well, I just wanted to say - that I really enjoy my hanging flower baskets and they are worth the effort. I have been right out straight, busy this summer. B-U-S-Y! Enjoying having my family though and making extra time to squeeze it all in.
Here are some photos from my summer album.
Day fishing off the dock.
Mackerel - good eating! The kids can catch 5-6 at a time with their mackerel jigs when the fish are running! These were caught by another boy on the dock - he shared some with my son who then shared his with 2 of our neighbors. Plenty to share and share!
Got to share with the eagle who has a bum foot and can't fish for himself.
Night fishing off the dock.
I have tons more photos, but will leave it at that for those of you who can't handle tons of photos all at once. Let's just say - I have a son that loves to fish! We are having a good summer!
