OBX Oceanfront Garden

I can never resist filling a few pots of flowers for the deck while we are at the beach. It just makes it feel more like home. The white gaura lindheimeri 'snow fountain' is taking on a pink tint to the flowers and is just loving the weather.
The geraniums and dahlias bring some great color, especially in the morning sun.
The lantana took a beating in the wind but should survive the summer once I plant it back home.

Same with the fuchsia. and its seashell collection.

Beautiful! It looks like you got some decent weather this week - yay! Is the gorgeous pink a dahlia? It'll be like bringing the beach home with you :-) Happy week and HMD!

Just look at that sand and water. I am jealous. Your dahlia is so pretty.
