Weekend gardening ...

My front patio area was looking decidedly browned off after our hot summer - my pots of petunias had gone to God...
~
Time for replanting and a good clean up...
~
My wrought iron table and chairs were covered in dust and dirt - filthy!  First I hosed down the pavers (I am still waiting for someone to buy a pressure washer...).   I pulled out all the old plants and got rid of half of the potting soil and replaced it with fresh stuff...
~
Then I planted out these lovely Violas - this deep purple and ones in yellow and white...
~
~
I planted pansies in the green pots...
~
Now we can sit and have a cuppa or wine on the front porch ...
~
Much better - and I know there are no spiders lurking as I got rid of all the cobwebs too!

  1. Violas would have to be one of my favourite flowers. Your patios looks lovely and fresh now. Doesn't it make you feel good when you have a tidy up and replanting session?!
