Remember when I showed you all the patio makeover? Well that was at the end of June, and I had those plants that are in the photos a few weeks before I posted it. Here is another pic to refresh your memory…
I have the rubber plant on the left end, 2 Coleus by the other 2 columns, and the blue daze plant on the right.
And to my amazement, check out what the plants look like today.
Well first off, I can’t believe everything is still ALIVE, but alive AND flourishing! All of the plants have gotten so tall and are really filling out. If you look in that first photo from back in June at the red coleus in front of the middle column, you can really tell how tall it’s gotten. And the rubber plant has gotten much taller as well.
What I didn’t show you in the makeover post though, was something else I had planted in the bed in the back yard.
Another Coleus and some Vincas. And they are doing great too! This Coleus in particular has really doubled in size.
Oh, I also didn’t show you our front door back then either.
More blue daze…I love them!
I took all of these photos just a few days ago too. I am pretty proud about my plants and flowers, especially since they’ve all been alive and doing well for almost 2 months now. I haven’t done anything special to them. I just have to water every.single.day. And I can’t believe I’ve actually even been doing that because I’m lazy, but Emma loves to help me water so at least I try and make it a “fun” chore.
Do I dare try and start a vegetable garden next year?? Would I have the same good luck? That would be so awesome.
