Orlando Flowers

“Orlando Flowers”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

I haven’t posted in a while because I have been in Orlando, Florida. I agreed to chaperon a senior trip, and while it was fun, it was exhausting. Of course, I paid most of my attention to the plantings. Sea World was a tropical paradise, and even though spring has arrived very early this year, I was envious of the hostas that were so prolific there. The hanging baskets were also spectacular – so big and full. Here are a few of the container and hanging baskets that could serve as inspiration for our gardens.

Containers – have to remember to use big ones.

 

 

 

Hanging baskets – the bigger the better.

 

 

 

 

Don’t you just love the white petunias. The other colors were just as pretty.

I’ll post some to the plantings later.

    Wow, those are certainly huge hanging baskets. The white Petunias and white Pelargoniums are fantastic, but then again I’m a big fan of white. I also loved the Strelitzia and Impatiens combination. I think I need bigger pots and baskets.

    Super containers! So do you mean seniors as in 12th graders? or Seniors as in grandmas and grandpas? Either one would be an interesting trip.

      Janet, it means seniors as in 12th graders. They were fabulous and had a ball. It was the 10 hour bus trip that was the killer for me.

        Yes, that would be a killer bus ride. I miss going on field trips with mine. Senior trip was to go to DC from southern VA….only about a 4 hour ride.

    “Wow, those are certainly huge hanging baskets.”

    Yes, it is indeed. I also like the huge containers being used. Never thought that it would be literally means “big”
