Memorial Day Plants

We started our morning by dropping E&A off at the airport. So sad to see them go!

Then we pulled up all the pansies from the front beds and put them into boxes to give them to Krista, my new FreeCycle friend. It took about 45 minutes to pull them all up but I’m glad we didn’t just throw them away.

After that, we got into the planting. We planted mixed zinnias and mixed gazanias in the front beds to the right of the front porch. Along the walkway on the left side of the porch, we planted yellow, orange, and bronze marigolds. I have a killer sunburn on the small of my back. Stupid Jeni.We had a few gazanias left over, so I planted them in two pots that went on the back porch. Finally, flowers on our back porch! I got to use my Colombian pot, the handmade terracotta pot on the higher step. I carried this pot back in my lap when I came back from Colombia. I treasure it.
