The aroma of the jasmine

We have had our star jasmine on our lattice fence off the side deck for many years.

I think its prettier this year than it has ever been. The smell is so strong you just want to stay there sniffing it lol.

We have to cut it back after it blooms this year or we will not be able to get through the gate anymore.

I have noticed this year there are lots of hummingbirds enjoying our jasmine.

DIY Concrete flower pot

This was my first large concrete flower pot.

I have already made the second one for my mother in law.

I used the same exercise ball from the orb but this time I left a larger hole and trimmed it out some to make it irregularly shaped on the top edge.

On the second coat, I added in some peat moss to give it texture. This was 3 coats total and then I let it dry and painted it.

Metallic green and copper paint accent the beauty of this flower pot. Then I clear coated it inside on the upper part and the entire outside.

I  planted a full pot of Petunias from one of my favorite places Joseph’s Nursery in Manvel, Texas. I have been shopping there since 1983 when they opened this place and they are super friendly and are always willing to tell you most anything about a plant.

This large pot of petunias was $19.00 what a deal.

These beautiful flowers will be accented with new decor on the lattice fence in the backyard.

More pics coming soon of the redecorated fence.
