I like to have some hanging baskets as they add splashes of colour to different areas. 

So I planted up six in total an have them in the greenhouse until they get stronger, plus I don't want the frost to get them  I did this last year and the results was really worthwhile  

I have some spotted purple/white Petunia.....a mix of Petunia.......some Bidens.....and another plant, purple in colour, which the name escapes me now lol 

I like the purple and the yellow together  

I've put them out during this week as the weather has been quite nice, calm and warm at times, but I take them in at nignt. I'm looking  forward to seeing these in full flower over the Summer

They look lovely alright. Is that lilac fower a Brachyscome? They're great little trailing pants.

Blue and yellow is a beautiful combination, a favourite with everyone. Nice day here today, sunny and warm.

Gosh Mary we had a dreadful, wet, and dreary day here. It is only this evening that it is starting to brighten up a bit, but I was drenched this morning while out walking!!

Thanks Heather
