So much of the yard is in shade at this house we are renting. But the two-level deck gets full sun.
So this week I went through more unpacked moving boxes and found some of my planters.
I bought some potting soil and annuals, filled the planters and put them around the deck railing. Now the deck is bright with color. These are photos of the flowers I bought.
A few of the neighbors have stopped by to introduce themselves and welcome us to the neighborhood. Our neighbors that live next door brought a lovely potted dahlia for us when they stopped by.
