Beautiful mix of colour.

Like the combo. I am trying to keep my pots to a balcony, and will post soon. One not doing so well. We have had a lot of RAIN, and they need to dry out! It's either water like mad, or hope the rain stops... But it's summer, Yea.

Fortunately Busy Lizzies are tougher than they appear to be! A week or so ago we had some very hot days & I forgot to water the 3 small troughs of Busy Lizzies & when I saw my error (they were all wilted!) I gave them a good soaking & a day later it looked as if nothing had happened to them!

I have found the little Begonias quite forgiving also. Will have do the Impatiens next year. The animals like to eat them. We have all those woodland critters. Balconies, the way to go!

Well I'm certainly glad I don't have to contend with the wildlife eating my plants, other than the occasional caterpillar or snail or earwig!
