I love the white edges on these little guys. The color is amazing. I think after these flowers have been spent, I will pinch these back a little. The are really tall and I would like for them to fatten up a little before growing up.
The little flowers are looking great as they just started to open up during the past two days. The foliage has filed out the basket and gotten a lot thinker than the tiny little things that I brought home a few weeks ago. I am very happy since this is my first time to have hanging baskets. I am still learning, but love the annuals that are growing.
So far this year he has planted: tomatoes, peppers, okra,sunflowers, petunias, asslym, sunflowers, zinnia, carnations, and helped me with a few lilies. He says he still wants squash and watermelons. I think we are going to have a very busy summer. At least it is not as busy as when I was a kid. We had acres of purple hull peas, okra and I don't even remember what else. The heat had you fried and drained by the time you had one bushel of peas. I miss the peas, but not the long, hot days picking them.
