On June 27, the old mop bucket is spilling over with blue lobelia and orange calibrachoa.

The terracotta pots of succulents are multiplying in a wire basket on top of the old typewriter.

The diascias like this cool weather, but the alyssum are still pretty small.  I made the washboard planter in a post here.

Another lobelia spills out of an old wooden crate.

  4. It's all looking good, especially the cranesbill. So pretty! And is that a morning glory I see already climbing your trellis? Mine are only a few inches high and I doubt they'll ever climb anything at this rate!

  8. Love the typewriter idea. I got conned into buying an old manual typewriter at an auction. My 18 year old son was tagging along and thought it was sooo cool! I bought it and wondered what in the world I was going to do with it now that I have it!

  9. You sure seem to have a talent for gardening and the containers you use are wonderful. Love them cause they're not the usual a person would expect to see. I've got a scrub board that's going to have a shelf on it. I love things different than what people would expect to see, makes it more fun and happier to me. Wish we could have gorgeous flowers as you do but we have to keep things in containers, our ground is full of alkali. Hard to grow many things. We live few miles west of Grand Junction, CO, very dry here also. Enjoyed seeing your lovely garden. Happy summer/weekend days
