Olive Jar Blooms

I do my best to perform any lawn maintenance(pulling weeds, deadheading flowers, watering) in the morning when the temperatures are cooler (cooler than 90 degrees!). Yesterday, the WWL-TV meteorologist reported that the heat index reached 123 degrees!!! WOW!!! It really has been oppressive. It really has.

Today, I decided I would share the plants in the olive jars in the front garden. The smallest olive jar was a recent purchase from Perino's, my favorite local nursery. The olive jars are filled with white caladiums which are always "on point", variegated ivy, ferns, begonias, and petunias. They are all doing beautifully, even in the high summer heat.

What are your favorite summer plants?

Olive Jars, y'all!


  1. Good morning, Ron! Wow, the plants and flowers in your olive jars are gorgeous--so lush! You really have a green thumb unlike me! I really love caladiums and petunias! Have a great day! xoxo

  2. ROn, those are just really gorgeous. I really love the green and white combination of your caladiums, ivy and petunias. The white begonias are also wonderful. And 123° - I can't even imagine. It's been hot here, but certainly not that hot. We're still in decent temps if we walk by 8am (around 70°), but it quickly rises, and by 9an it gets at least 15° warmer, and the humidity making it feel even worse. Soon we'll have to walk by 6:30 to beat the heat.

  3. Wow those look so good! Love the white caladiums and petunias! Great style planters! I have some pink caladiums that I started and are finally showing off!


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
