Below is a photo I took on day one. Clockwise from right, are:
- Kong Jr. Lime Vein coleus
- Arroyo Grande fuchsia
- Silhouette Appleblossom double impatiens (a very beautiful pale pink)
- Alternanthera "Little Ruby"
- Asparagus fern
On the other side is Silhouette Cherry Red double impatiens. Lots of buds on this plant!
Next are photos of the container eight days later. Look how the plants have filled in already, and the fuchsia is blooming beautifully. I think the Appleblossom double impatiens might be my favorite of the bunch, though. With its pale pink color, which is prettier in person than in these photos, and lacy petals, it is so feminine and delicate! At night, the blossoms glow in the moonlight.
Another addition to the porch is this attractive three-panel wood gate by Martha Stewart Pets. Now the dogs can enjoy being with us as we dine and relax on the front porch. This gate is perfect. It's wide enough to span the width of the stairs, but the hinges allow it to fold for easy storage. Two feet, one on each of the outer panels, provide stability. Henry and Ella are very happy about this new purchase, and so are we!
Henry says he hopes you are enjoying these beautiful days of spring as much as he is. Thank you for visiting My Little Bungalow!
