Celebrating the 4th In My Gardens

 I've placed American Flags here and there in my planters as you'll see in the pictures!  

 This is in front of the garage.  I've got Supertunia Vista Fuchsia growing here along with Prince Tut papyrus (grass) and Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Lime vine.

 This is a planter on the deck.  My red is Cuphea (Firecracker plant), Scaevola Whirlwind White for my white, Isotoma Beth's Blue, Supertunia Royal Velvet for my blues, and more of the sweet potato vine.

 A quick shot of my hosta hill. 

 I decided that one of my garden benches would be nice up on the right side of the gardens by the woods.  It's a very flat area and hardly anything grows there.  Dan used his handy torch to burn off the area we chose for this setting.  I've planted some Caladium bulbs in the blue planter which have just started to grow.

This shows you a bit of the burning process.  He uses this to burn off weeds that grow in the patio area and it really works well.

 We applied a chick layer of mulch and it's quite pleasant sitting here.  The bugs are nearby but so far none have bothered me.

 Back to my planters...

 A view that captures several of the flags I placed.

 A zoom in on this one!

And an early evening shot!
I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July!  Our daughter is in visiting from California so we're enjoying our time together!

I'll be joining:

    Using a torch to deter weeds, eh? I'll share that "tip" with "Mr. Ed"!
