On Sunday I looked at this barrel and the sad looking impatients and decided it needed a sprucing up The original flowers that were planted were a light pink and corral impatients. I did not plant them so I couldn't say anything about it, but the corral waas not my favourite in that combination But with all the rain the last month or so, the impatients needed an uplift. So I went to a local nursery and picked up a potato vine, bacoppa and a small fuchia plant. These are semi-shade lovers as that was I needed for this space. I was aiming for a cascading of plants to trail over the barrel.
Being that I am an admirer of flowers but not usually the Gardener, which is what my husband loves, I didn't know what I was doing. I planted these and was so impressed with myself and how it turned out I had to share. I did keep the original pink impatients and transferred the corral ones to elsewhere in the garden.
Now everytime I go back the barrel I fuss around the flowers to see how they are doing. I can see how people get attached to their flowers and gardens !!
