I have more plants to show you that I rescued from the half dead section.
I mean clearance section. I showed you the watering can pots here.
I could not find the picture of the plants when I first brought them home.
But they were you know, half dead.
Now they are not.
This whole plant assortment was already put together. It was just in a much smaller pot.
And part of it was brown-ish.
I had these 2 cheap plastic terracotta colored pots and well, they needed something.
So I decided to stripe them.
First I primed them both with a plastic primer. I painted one all white and one all blue.
Then I taped them off and reversed the colors.
Take off the tape and voila! Striped pots.
The spray primer for plastics is right there with the rest of the spray paints.
That way you can use whatever color you want.
Gives them a coastal vibe I think
The croton in the back was on clearance but not half dead at all.
I guess they just wanted to get rid of them.
I added a sweet potato vine and a petunia. It’s just not blooming yet.
I really like the bright green of the vine.
It give a nice bright glow even when there are no flowers.
These guys just needed a bigger pot and a little trim and they bounced right back.
I had someone watching me. He was on the inside of the screen. I hope he doesn’t end up in the pool. We’ve had a few casualties. But I’m not one to pick them up, I leave that for others. Unless their tiny.
Oh, I saw the teeniest lizard the other day. It was so cute. I wish I had my camera on me.
Anyway, now I have 2 more pots full of color for next to nothing really.
I need to get some new plants for my hanging baskets. I lost 2 of them.
I need something that likes the heat.
I will leave you with this shot of Henry.
He was outside and came in with this plumbago bloom stuck to him like a bow!
Hmmmm, I wonder if he’s trying to tell me something. :)
