Show and Tell Monday

Well, this is not crafty at all but I got my flowers planted a couple of weeks ago and thought I would share. 

Over the years I have accumulated a lot of flower pots but every year I sure do use all of them.

I am no expert in gardening at all but I did discover a couple of years ago that I can keep Begonias alive. I usually plant them in April or May and they stay looking good until the first freeze in the winter.

This year I also picked up some Celosia flowers and some Potato-vine plants.  I have been wanting the Potato plant since last year. I love the bright green colors and they are so pretty once they start growing. 

I am hoping mine will grow like the others I have seen. I only bought a couple of these because I didn't know how they would grow for me.  If they do well this year I will be getting these again next year.

This Celosia flowers are pretty and I am hoping they stay like this for awhile.

Of course, the one day I decided to plant my flowers the last cold front we got came threw. So, we had to put on a light jacket while we were outside.  This little boy hung out with me while I planted.

If you know of any other easy flowers to keep let me know.
