My Annual and Perennial Gardens

My planted tanks may be ho-hum at the moment, but my terrestrial gardens are keeping me busy! Check out the pics! That's my husband Steve in one of the pictures, helping me plant all these flowers I bought!

Wow! Your gardens are beautiful!

My roommate is from Pittsburgh. He grew up in the North Hills area, and his Aunt and Uncle still live there in the Fox Chapel neighborhood. It is such a beautiful and interesting city!

Thanks, everyone! DarylF2, I live in the North Hills too.

In the picture of the whole deck - it's called Deck_Annuals_1, I think - the reddish-purple, round, bushy plant near the middle of the pic is a member of the Alternanthera genus. I don't have any Alternanthera plants in my tanks, but I do on my deck!

Wow. The arrangements look great too.

Have you thought about a Whisky barrell pond for the deck? I bet it'd be fantastic.

Thanks, everyone!

I would love to try a whiskey barrel pond, but there's no electricity on the deck. Of course, if I had a big yard, I would have a real pond!

I have been lucky with my planted tanks - not much has gone wrong with them. But I worked hard on my terrestrial gardens and I'm proud of them.
