A trip to the garden center

Yesterday I went to the garden center and bought three hanging pots.  I normally do my own but I just don't have time this year with all the projects I want to get done.  I was thinking about getting all the flowers for my pots but it was so busy there I decided not to.  And boy am I glad since we had a hail storm last night.

 I did manage to get the hanging pots transferred to mine.  I bought these at Sam's a few years ago.  They look so much better than the plastic ones from the garden center. I couldn't believe that I found some that had red, orange and yellow flowers in them.  Those are the colors in my yard (I also have purple).

Now I just need to get flowers for the baskets on the railing, the birdbath, the decorative pot holder and all my pots.  It is going to rain this weekend so I guess it will have to wait.

Some of my flowers are starting to bloom.  Right now my iris's are starting to show off.  I am glad that the hail didn't damage it last night.

It looks blue in the picture but it is actually a very light purple.

My clematis is taking off this year.  I can't wait to see it bloom.  I planted it last year by the lamp post.  I just love this trellis that I found.  It looks like a plant.
