This is the white mandevilla, the one that suffered most cruelly from the three night freeze at the beginning of May. Just a month ago. I added the red and white daisies to distract from the damage I did to this poor plant. It lost all its branches save one.There are two tiny new limbs started, one at six o'clock and one where the clock hands would be fastened.
The red mandevilla came through just fine and so did the pink. The pink is about to unfurl a new set of blossoms.
Two of my pots around the steps are doing well. The last merely needs more flowers, when a nursery is not too busy. The blue pot has the blossoms of three allium. I like the shape of them from start to finish, and will leave then a while longer. Then, some snapdragons, favorites of Laura, and a nice succulent Jan picked up.
I do not know the name of any plant in the tan pot, but that's OK. Between all of you, they will be enumerated and listed in the comments. I do like the looks of this pot.
The green pot has only this purple plant. It needs some more, and when I see a nursery with a reasonably empty parking lot, I'll look for a gerbera daisy, or two.
I also have two small pots, definitely worth a mention. The one on the top deck was planted with zinnia seeds from my friend Deb. They were seeds she collected, or was gifted, and the outside of the pack was written: Zinnia ? So, we'll see. That skinny fellow in the back may be a weed, but I'll give it a fair chance. My eye is on it.
And finally I have a pot of dahlia bulbs. I think dahlia; they look like zinnia, but are bulbs. There was a weed in this pot, but I pulled it!
And finally, time to be back to weaving. I'm working on aqua green, and have it around the beam. The first row of bobbins has become aqua green towel.
