I could not wait any longer to buy my plants for the hanging baskets and containers, so Ken and I loaded up and headed to one of the local nurseries.
Since I had already scoped it out the weekend before, I knew exactly where everything was. It did not take me long to bring home these.
And hook up the solar panel outdoor radio that Ken built himself.
I do not even attempt to understand all of this, but I do know how to hook up the ipod and speakers.
It is fun to plant with your favorite jams in the background.

Superbelles ... I am anxious to see how these will do! I like that they are heat tolerant.
Double petunias ... one of my favorite discoveries last year! I like the reddish and white colors in this.
For the most part, I picked out plants that could survive in full sun since most of my house, especially the behind, gets a lot of sun.
Some plants, like my inpatiens, are ones that I know will do well where they are, however, I am trying out new plants to get a little variety and of course, expand my horizons.
