Lacking fuchsias, this summer’s deck flowers are a ruffled hanging geranium and its elegant companion, a rich pink begonia.
Both plants would probably be happier — or perhaps more enthusiastic — if they had more direct sun. Nonetheless, they seem to have settled for dappled sun and a hefty dose of water.
Unlike my indoor plants which have to beg me for a drink, the outdoor hanging plants get watered daily when the weather is warm and sunny. They are watered every second day if it’s cool and cloudy and of course not at all when it is raining.
Both of the hanging plants are doing surprisingly well. Lots of deadheads to clear away. Those are difficult for me to reach. It isn’t arthritis. I’m just so awfully short.
