Spiller, Filler, and Thriller
Gardening is not my forte, but I do love a pretty view when looking out the kitchen window.
So, I'm practicing by working with containers on my back deck, before I venture out into the big, bad world that is our half-acre plot here in hilly, rocky Cherokee County, GA.
A varigated ground cover whose name I forgot, spills over the sides of this black metal chair.
Petunias fill the bed or seat of the chair.
The pink Calla Lily is supposed to grow taller and be my *thriller*.
Platform feeder on the right where cardinals, titmice, brown thrashers, and chipmunks feast.
Bird bath on the left where I see squirrels, birds and insects drink and bathe.
Then some liriope aka monkey grass.
Finally, take a peek to the right down the stairs. The delphinium is joined with some creeping jenny and presides over half a dozen pots of zinnias.
I guess the real test comes later during the long, hot summer.
Will I be able to keep these babies alive?
The garden hose is poised to help ;-)
