We put up this baby gate between the office deck and our private deck to keep residents from knocking on our door... it didn't work. So the biggest planter here is on rollers so that I can get in and out, but hopefully discourage passage. It also didn't work with the worst "invader."
Fuschia from small starts this year. Last year we bought three huge plants, so guess I can be more proud because we "grew" these from babies.
The read leaf begonia below is from last year. I brought it in during the winter and it survived and is flourishing.
