Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

A whole new look

Sunday I finished placing the plants in the pots I painted a few days ago.

First pot has Flowering Kale 'Coral Queen, Viola 'Antique Shades', Superbells and a Mexican Feather Grass.

The second pot has all the same plants, except instead of the Feather Grass, it has a Variegated Moor Grass. The pots should look very attractive when the Kale reaches 12 inches high, the Violas fill out, and the Superbells trail over the edge of the pots.

BTW I have a slide show on Keewee's Corner of the progress made on my new Shade Garden.

Can you come over and do my fall pots, Jennifer? You made some nice combinations and I like the color of the pots!

Wowsers! Pretty blue, great plant combos. I always forget to mix up my plants when I do pots. I am trying to be less boring in that department. Yours look great!

Hi KeeWee,I had to replace the plants in my tumbling pots as they had dried out even though they have been outside in one of the wetest summers ever!You seem to have lots of yellow in the garden was this planned or one of those happy accidents?
