Show and Tell Friday more flower pots in the making

Show 'n Tell time again - I am still potting up plants here.
Be sure to head over to Kelli's blog to see what everyone else has to show today.
This is another 'yellow' pot, w/ yellow dahlia in the back, yellow celosia and
some white zinnias, and some variegated sweet potato vine in the front. Lowe's is clearing out a lot of their plants, and so I got most of these plants for pennies on the dollar.

This is lLimelights rtemesia, if I have the name right. It is invasive and quite a pest, from what I read on the internet, but I did manage to kill some last year in my garden. I found another plant of it this spring, and it is working well in another of my pots.

I still have some profusion zinnias, some geraniums, and a few other odds and ends to arrange in pots. Then water and fertilize and hope the fill out and look good!
Happy Friday!

Good luck with your flowers. If I bought last of the season flowers, they would be dead already! These look like they are coming along nicely. Have a wonderful weekend.

Pretty. I love everything about gardening and flowers. This was a perfect, and very delightful show n tell.

My show n tell isn't what I had planned to do this week, the hurricane Dolly prevented me to have much online time this week since the time I did have was updating on the storm coming through our area. Next week, I hope to have my 'tears' show n tell. This week, I opted with photos I had on the computer already - bric a brac in our master bath. Come by if you can. I'd love a visit from you...and, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.

Potted plants are so versatile...and it's fun to mix a variety in each container.
