This is what it looked like on May 26th. As you can see, I have pointed out where creepy stalker guy lives. He has been behaving himself somewhat, but I still need to put up an overhead screen for my own comfort.
I dug a bed last year and amazingly enough, this plant seems to be coming back. I have no idea what it is.
I took these last night. I am one of the lucky ones that gets a hose, so I can water without too much trouble. Last years bed is by the brick stuff, which is my bedroom.
When the weather clears and I can fix it, the black thing with the artificial vines on it, gives me privacy from the next patio. I'll take a better photo of it when I am done.
I will probably make a bed here in this corner next year, but for now, the pots will do. As you can see, my swing won't fit on a regular balcony. (they would end where the white wall ends.)
I now have Bleeding Heart, campanula, my mystery plants and day lilies that should all come back next year. I put in yellow marigolds and amaranthus (love lies bleeding) and silver lace as well. And some donated bark chips.

This is a close up of the hanging petunia.
Now as long as everything continues to grow, I should have a grand array of flowers. There are two vines, one is Canary Bird Vine the other is Creeping Charlie. The left hand blue stone pot has a citronella geranium in it. Violas are in the shallow clay pot and in the pot under the kitchen window, with more dianthus.
I should fill the pots with some lobellia but, I have blown the planting budget this year. Oh well! My suite faces East for those that are wondering.
Have a great day everyone!
