Everything looks lovely Sheikea. Your peas are looking especially healthy & flourishing. What is the pretty purple flower in the third picture down? (I'm hopeless at recognizing flowers.. LOL). :)

Here's a suggestion regarding your spikes. If the leaves tend to bend over like mine have (I think the wind is responsible), I put tiny green paper clips at the bent joints and they are now straight. I'm here in the lower Ottawa Valley and we have had horrible bouts of wind this year.

I love your pretty urn filled with petunias, bacopa and lime green sweet potato vine, and of course the 'spike' adds another lovely height element.

Told you I was hopeless at recognizing flowers... :lol: Although I did wonder (after I'd posted already) if that was - ahem - a petunia. :lol: At first glance I thought it was something more exotic!

I especially like the planting with the spike up the centre...very very striking.
