Gnome Dome Makeover
Whenever I mow, I have to move all my potted plants (which is many) into the middle of the yard. Well this time I wanted to spread them out so my large lot wouldnt look so bare in spots. I moved alot of the planter into new spots. I think I moved every one of the pots to a new spot. I would love comments about it, good or bad.
Keep in mind Im a renter so nothing more can go into the ground. As it is, we are talking about moving into a house (bigger) soon so everything in the ground has to be dug up and potted.
I moved the hot pink Bougianvilla to my front door for color. I moved the mini cannas and 4 O'clocks out of the corner and put the Black Magic there.
The other night I come home late at night and as I turned into the drive, my headlights caught something feeding off my pink Butterfly Bush. It looked like a hummingbird but with it so late at night and when my headlights hit it, it took off, Im wondering if it wasnt a hummingbird moth. Plus theres tons of butterflies that feed off it all day. So I moved them where I could see them from the front door. The pink one sits at the end of my row of plants next to the banana tree and the purple one now sits between my passion vine and fern tree.I added a few potted plants around the purple one to fit it in more in that area.
This is a shot from the bottom step at the front door.
The large orange pot(left) is the mini cannas.The metal thing with the black pot is an tomato stand thingie I used for my morning glorys when all my tomatos died.
To the left in the upper left corner is my wild flower bed. To the right of that is a Ipeomea (SP?) Im trying to get to climb one of the tomato stands thingies, like it climbed the fence last year. In the foreground is the orange canna. To the lower right is another morning glory with one of the stands. The rose area is in the background.
Another morning glory and orange canna. Rose area in the background.Dont mind the floding chair in the rose area....LOL I was talking to my roses!!! :D

If you can't plant them in the ground because you may move, maybe you could dig a hole and put part of the pot into the ground. It might keep them cooler and conserve some water. Dooley
It looks good but it would be great for you to be able to plant them in a permanent place .I know you would love that too .You have some very pretty plants.
This clay is like concrete to try and dig. Its ok to dig until about 2 ft down. Then its like concrete.
You have so many pretty plants.It also looks like alot of land there.I would sure hate to move and leave it all.
