Gardening makes me happy. The bad thing is that because I live in a condo, my gardening space is fairly limited.  But that doesn't stop me from adding some color. It's all about the pretty flowers.

And because the weather was so beautiful out I finished planting the flowers on my balcony today.

Every year I stick with the petunias and vinca vines. This year I threw a spike in there for some height.

Eventually they will get split up. I'll probably put the white container on the little table I have. I LOVE the little blue flowers. I have no idea what they are but I had to have them. Same with the red gerber daisies. I'm the worst. I just get distracted by the pretty and buy them with no real plan. 

This might be my favorite. Pink gerber daisies and little blue flowers. (We'll see how long it lasts before I find a way to kill it.)

I also made yet another run to the nursery for flowers for the condo building. I did the planters today before I ran out of potting soil yet again. I'll have to make yet another trip to the nursery tomorrow so I can finish planting this stuff before it all dies.

I love long relaxing holiday weekends.

Very pretty! Is the blue some kind of aster, perhaps? I was trying to get taz to identify it (having worked at a plant nursery for a while, and would be thrilled if he never saw a vinca plant again), but he came up short.

That seems like it would be a fun job. For a while.

The blue one's were apparently called Beth's Blue... whatever the heck that is. Honestly, some of the names on these things are crazy. One of the reds is Tequila Sunrise.
