Winner winner

but no chicken dinner for capecodgirl565.  Vanessa, I have your email and will contact you soon for address.  Thanks everyone.
  I wasn't distracted by the big level at all.  'Cause he ain't here.  Trying for Monday, but the entire week is forecasting storms so it won't be done, I'm sure. 
 
We've been to every Amish greenhouse from here to Volant - beautiful full baskets of petunias but all mixed colors.  Yes those multi colors are gorgeous but not when I have several containers, barrels, and hangers.  Too much for my aging eyes.  A mass of solid color in the barrels doesn't compete with smaller displays, instead shows them off.  I saw something different that I loved, but it requires shade/morning sun which I can't provide.

No flowers, just beautiful soft yellow foliage.  She said it grows quickly and is very easy to care for so I came home with two 4" containers and will pot them for a shady corner.
 
This is a Golden Plectranthus.  Sounds like a dinosaur.  Maybe I should look for trailing foliage instead of flowers for the barrels.  Back to the nursery.
 
Hope you have a great weekend and a sweet Mother's Day.

That's such a pretty plant. When I saw the shot of the baskets, I thought it was a coleus, but this looks ... nicer. More kempt, maybe?

I have that plant and I treat it like coleus! Morning sun, afternoon shade and keep moist. Mine flowers with lavender blooms. I brought mine inside during winter and now it's back outside. Good luck, Marly!
