A Rainy Day in the Gardens

We hope to plant Stella D'Oro Lilies along the brick wall, beside the fountain, over the weekend. The pots around the front of the fountain contain double Impatiens, in red. The background photo shows Knockout Roses, beside the back porch steps. They were a pitiful frost burned sight, a month ago. They're coming back strong.
We had a beautiful slow rain, this morning. This afternoon, the sun appeared. We're now seeing a pretty sunset.
This morning, I took a few photos of the gardens. They are growing beautifully. The stand on the front porch holds two pots of red Geraniums. The pot on the floor of the porch holds a Creeping Ginny, volunteer. The other photos show Knockout Roses, baskets on hooks, the Stella D'Oro's at the edge of the front yard berm and the fountain.
Sometime, over the weekend, I'll take photos of the garden next to the creek.

We have a little road trip planned for Saturday. We hope to browse antiques shops in Alton, IL. Of course, I'll take the camera.
Thank you for visiting the Back Porch during the month of May. Have a wonderful weekend!
