Pansies, Snap Dragons & Violas.. Oh My! :0

Last Friday, on my day off, I took my time picking out flowers for two planters; one for my mother-in-law's grave site for Mother's Day and one for my back porch railing. Before going, I researched which flowers did well in New England Spring weather which can be too cool for some plants. So, after I did that, off I went to the garden center with my list of acceptable flowering plants for the season. :sml:

This is what I came home with: Snap Dragons, Violas & Pansies :shakepansy:




For the planters, I bought decent planter soil & a bag of perlite, along with sheet moss for the tops of the planters to help keep in the moisture with the added benefit of being aesthetically pleasing. :prettycolors:

It turned out that I had purchased more flowers than could fit in the two intended planters, so I ended up utilizing a hanging planter that I had on hand for the rest. :cheerful:

This was the end result:







All of the above are still doing very well... even if a squirrel did try to dig up one of my snap-dragons. :glare:
