    • Hi Linda!  I planted a beautiful mix of deep purple petunias, pale purple petunias, sun-loving impatiens in a dark pink..added a cute solar decoration pick to the dirt and a small American flag for the holiday and it is doing great.  I also do marigolds and some decorative grass along with tiny decorations for my front porch as it gets very sunny out there.

      What did you have in mind?

    • Hi Mary! Thanks for your response. WOW, your mixture of colorful flowers sounds great!  

      Weeds are in those pots and I want to make a pretty appearance for the front porch. Since I don’t have a green thumb I needed some advice. Some of the flowers you’ve mentioned are on sale, so I’ll pick up a nice mixture and give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion! happy
