Father’s Day Planter 2014

Inquiring minds may want to know about the Father’s Day planter I assembled for Dad this year. Following is a step-by-step explanation of plants chosen and how they were placed.

First, the planter was emptied of all weeds by my mom. I was surprised to find a clean slate!

I chose a Coral Bells plant, 4 Dragon Wing Begonias, 3 white Scaevola Diamonds, and 3 Sweet Carolines. They are in the box alongside the planter.IMG_1117In went the Coral Bells.

Next, 3 Dragon Wings. The remaining one will find a home in the back flowerbed.

Time for the Sweet Carolines and Scaevola Diamonds.

It’s the Father’s Day 2014 planter. Also, the Welcome Home, I’m glad you’re still alive and can talk and laugh with me one.

Dad watched as I put it together.

Afterwards, we walked out back and planted the remaining Dragon Wing next to the Foxglove.

Then Dad went inside to rest.

What a difference a week makes!
