This is my stoop garden. I live in a condo so I cannot have a garden, but I plant these in about four pots and they are sitting on old apple orchard crates right outside my front door.
I wish I had taken a before shot because, boy howdy, did these flowers go wild this year. I won't rip them out as long as it stays as warm as it's been -- or unless they start getting really leggy. Then the mums will have to go in. I know the ivy looks out of place, but it told me it wanted to go outside for the summer. The vining plant in the lower left corner is my neighbor's little girl's pumpkin plant.
I know calendar wise summer is still here, but event wise, it's basically over next weekend, being Labor Day Weekend here in the States.
I hope everyone had a good summer!!
