‘I hope that while so many people are out smelling the flowers, someone is taking the time to plant some.”

Herbert Rappaport (1908 - 1983), known in the Soviet Union as Gerbert Moritsevich Rappaport, was an Austrian-Soviet screenwriter and film director.

TIME:  7:41 PM
PLACE:  Front porch
SUBJECT:  Flowers

I am very behind this year in planting containers with annuals to place around the front of the house.  I normally have several hanging baskets and pots decorating the front porch, but didn’t get around to it last month due to my mishap.  With the addition of the glider on Saturday, I decided that the empty planter on the chippy chair that sits next to it needed to be filled.  DQ went with me and wanted to design the container with pinks, oranges and yellows.  She picked out some “Profusion Orange” zinnias (planted on each side), the pink vinca in the back, and a “Pink Madness” petunia (not shown) in the front.  We couldn’t find a yellow that we liked, so we went with a white Euphorbia “Breathless Blush” instead.  I do like me that “Pacifica Punch” vinca she chose.  She did good.
