Vinca in the Tea PotGerbera Daisy in the Tea Cup As you all know I am not gardening this summer and missing it terribly.

So it begins!! (MsDeb, notice my “bench”!! Hubby made me one to bring to AZ!) Trying to figure out where I want stuff and before I layered the paper and top soil What the plants will look like once mature I’m doing a Happy Dance!!!!!
