Wall of flowers in town.
I took this photo in July. It was at its best then. It is a planting of many different kinds of Petunias, Alyssum, Sweet Potato Vine, Melampodium Derby (the bits of yellow) or one of it’s cousins, Salvia Victoria Blue and one of those fancy grasses. I am not so fond of the Sweet Potato Vine (the green plant)…aphids like it…a lot.
I told you that someday I would photograph the back of the wall of flowers in town.
Here is the back side it looks almost as good as the front side. The garbage can must hold water that is mixed with fertilizer when they want to fertilize via the drip irrigation system. Petunias are heavy feeders…they need lots of fertilizer to produce flowers.
They seem to have planted the flowers in some kind of a iron cage or net…I didn’t go and investigate further.
It all makes for a very pretty wall of flowers. It was really chilly last night 40 F or 4 C eh…it is only a matter of days before we get a freeze to wipe out all the flowers.
