... and on everything else outside!
These are the double impatiens outside our dining room window...
I braved the rain to snap these photos (see the little raindrop ready to fall from the petal in the upper left hand corner?)
Clearly the flowers are loving this wet summer because they're doing amazingly well ...
... especially when you consider the fact that I just plopped them down on the top of our birdseed screen feeder (serving as a windowbox for the summer) in their original little garden 6-pack containers. No larger pots, no potting soil, no fertilizer, no nothing...
I wonder if the Northwest is getting our typical Northeast summers (hot, high humidity, normal rainfall)? Because we definitely seem to be getting weather typical of the Northwest ... mildly pleasant summer temps, low humidity, and an excessive amount of rain! If it weren't for the rain, I'd actually be in 7th heaven with the pleasant temps and low humidity!
I'll definitely be buying lots more of these double impatiens in summers to come. They remind me of miniature roses.
Now who is that up in the old oak tree?
Awww, it's one of our Sammies, who's not going to let a rainy day keep him inside! Because rain or not, it's still a beautiful day!
