Yes, our deck needs to be painted – or at least washed – but at least we have pretty flowers to distract the eye! We went out this weekend and spent our savings on plants.

We've got petunias (purple and white) in the boxes along the railing, impatients (light pink) and New Guinea impatients (lighter pink) on the left side of the garden, begonias (Orange and Yellow) on the right side, Marigolds (orange/red) in a pot, and a few herbs to boot. Add in a hanging basket (not pictured) and the two hydrangeas we planted last year (one is growing really well and one is slow, but coming along) and we're set for a colourful summer sipping mojitos on the deck.

Now we just have to cross our fingers and hope that Ottawa is done with frost for the season.

  1. Looks awesome…..Im expecting them to look as great when I get there and have a mojito on your deck with you

  2. There are some herbs in the two green pots on either side of the planter. We have spear-mint (right), Rosemary, Chives, and Cilantro (left). There are also some Dusty Millers, forming one row across the front of the planter to create an "edge" look.Yup… we just need you here with our mojito. ~j
