SUBJECT:  Landmark Sunrise Rose Lantana

I finally filled my concrete planters with flowers this weekend.  I put these Lantana flowers, along with some pink geraniums and pink petunias in them.  They are all bright and candy-colored and make me happy.  I filled some hanging baskets with more petunias (they were only 98 cents for a 4” pot at the Home Depot); pinks in one and purples in another.  Then I splurged at my local gardening center and bought a 14” pre-made patriotic planter with red geraniums, red and white striped petunias, white verbena and blue salvia.  U.S.A! U.S.A!  I still have to fill a large cauldron that sits in my side flower bed and another hanging planter, then I should be done with annuals – If I don’t kill them all.  Maybe this will be the year where I consistently water my container plants and don’t let them die of thirst…just maybe. *crosses fingers*
