Bon Weekend!

Wishing you all a good weekend! 

 Isn't that the cutest container! 
I found it at a garden center and with my husband's past having grown up on a diary farm I couldn't resist it.  It's actually ceramic.  They finished it so nicely you'd think it was metal!  I chose petunias because I felt they have the right country casual look I wanted.
In the center I put one of those new Supertunias.  They look just like the New Guinea Impatiens except they can take full sun.

See the white flowers in the center- and this one comes with variegated leaves.  It should get taller and fuller and be a nice combo as the summer kicks in.  The Lysimachia (Creeping Jenny or Moneywort) will drape along the sides and cozy it up!

I'l be planting a few more things and trying to get more done outside this weekend.  Hope yours is grand!
