I’m not sure how I ended up with mostly softer, pastel colours this year, but I planted a railing flowerbox with these wonderful Calibrachoa, labeled as Light Blue, but showing much more purple than blue. :) They are so pretty, none the less. They are so like a petunia in shape, veining, etc. but so unlike them in other respects — they don’t wilt into a sticky mess!
In this same planter, I added another verbena — this one Obsession Blue with Eye. Again, it seems much more lavender than blue, but it is very pretty, likes the direct sun, and is a prolific bloomer. I filled in the rest of the planter with Extreme White Impatiens. The flowerbox hasn’t filled in enough to take a photo of the entire thing, but it won’t be long. I do enjoy examining these blooms up close. :)
And then there are my tomato plants that, though they’re healthy and growing, might produce fruit by Christmas! Actually, they’ve taken off quite nicely since I transplanted them into larger containers, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a “late harvest”. This is one of the Yellow Pears, and I have a few Better Boys that are doing well, also. Im taking my Dad a couple plants this weekend that he can set in his little hothouse — I’m sure they’ll do well there. :)
