My Summer Deck "Pot" Garden

I do love flowers and each Spring I get the "fever" to fill all my empty pots on the deck with new annuals. I can't do much in the yard because I have a "digger" dog who will plow up anything I try to plant in the flower beds so I have to stick to the pots I keep up high enough he can't bother them. This is this years efforts.

                                       Snoop has "pruned" the lower branches but the ones
                                           he can't reach on the Rose Of Sharon are nice.

              I grow the gladiolas in the front yard where
  Snoop can't get to them.
