so I splurged and got two pots!

Does anyone know what the yellow viney one is called? I think the other is bleeding hearts...

The pics aren't the greatest they are from my cell as hubby stole the digital to take on the road... but here is my hens and rocks.

Oh and I found something to help my black thumb... a worm that tells me when to water! (it turns color... think I'll get a few more for the other pots too.)

Oh and the windturbines up by Kincardine... just thought it was a cool shot!

Very pretty! I think the reddish one is a fuschia and the yellowish one is thunbergia...maybe (and I'm not sure of the spelling)?

This is sort of like a thread for "what breed is my plant"! But they are very colorful!

Oh, and hazel needs to get one of those worms, too... Does it turn black and fall to ashes when it's time to water like hazel's plants do?

Hazel - you are right. Thunbergia (Brown eyed Susan) is the vine. The fuschia is very pretty too. I sold quite a few of those this year.
Kr - that worm just looks........ well it looks.......... But it is cute!

I bought a couple of those Thunbergias for my pots this year also. Never had them before. I have them mixed in with other plants, I hope they don't try and take over. I noticed that a lot of the nurseries have loads of plants left apparently due to a crummy May and they are just starting with their sales. 50% off is great. Fuschia I love It does great when it has a bit of shade.

14+k How is the Lantana going?

Thanks guys! The worm has lips, when there is enough water, you can't see them as his body is the same color, when you need to water his body gets lighter and you can see his lips.... right now he is in my strawberry pot. I have a tendancy to over water potted plants and kill them so he's handy around here!

Oh and hens and rocks have turned out to be the best garden for me.... I never water them... and can't seem to kill them despite my best efforts!
