It's there, lol.

One of the money plants fell over so I propped it up with a rock since there wasn't any damage that I could see.  The mums need more water than they are getting and with the outside faucet broken I don't know how I'll keep everything watered.  So the mums are kind of wilted.  I won't plant the portulaca for about another month.  They like it hot and I don't want any cool night temperatures to kill them off.

My money plant doesn't get tall enough to fall over.   Yours must be getting just the right amount of whatever it needs.

Possibly they are two different plants with the same common name.  That happens a lot.

this is mine before it goes to the white, papery, coin stage.  The places it has sprung up is total shade.

Interesting.  I've got mine in full sun and the birdbath flower bed did get a far amount of compost this year.  So maybe that's the difference?  Then again I only have 2 plants so maybe they have more space?  I really couldn't tell you but without something to indicate height I'd be guessing.  I think my soil was just to soft and all the rain washed a bunch of it away.  I'll see about adding some more dirt to it tomorrow and maybe adding some small branches as well to keep the dirt from migrating.

Change in plans for this year.  I'll be using 8 of the tires rather than 4.  It's a good thing.  Or at least that's what I keep telling myself.  It means I'll only have 6 to fill next year.  Along with topping off the others of course.

I thought that the bunch of day lilies on the left side of the ditch beds were orange.  They are blooming yellow.  That's great it means I have more space to put in orange without it looking like there are too many.  Happy days another chore for this fall. 

Ok, 4 to fill next year and 10 to top off.  I never said I could count.

Tomatoes and Bell Peppers are in the tires.
