New planters ready

I found these two terra-cotta planters laying around in my 'hot' garden and thought they would be nice getting planted.
So I cleaned them out to get them ready for taking up to Tuysonvien where I hope to make good use of them.What kind of plants do you think they would look nice in?
I placed a pot of 'wishbone' in to see how it would look. I'm thinking of filling them with "blue" blooms.
I'm crazy about theme-colored container gardens but could never have made one. Maybe this time will be it!

Then it's high time you tried to make one! ;-D
I, too, am fond of blue flowers with pink being my next favorite. I sort of stay away from orange and mustard yellow, both of which I do not grow.

Your pots look nice and heavy and won't blow ever in a wind. Right now we have 30 mph winds for the last 2 days and it's impossible to work outside, everything blows away! :-(

Hi Kris, I haven't seen your new posts lately. Guess you're busy with planting outside.
Yes, these pots are very heavy, I had to ask my husband to help me move them around. Tomorrow we're going up to Dalat with these planters. Hopefully, next week I will have some photos of them gotten planted with blue/white flowers.
But sometimes I just cannot get the flowers I want to have. We don't have the kind of seedling market like you guys do over there. Plants are sold when they are fully bloomed... so they won't last very long once bought. Growers tend to force them to bloom with too much fertilizers that after blooming, they just collapse!
Thanks for visitng my blog regularly. I really enjoy your 'company' on the blog.

Yes, I'm so very busy on so many fronts right now. I'm promising myself to do a large post on the main page really soon. I will also be updating the Propagation, Projects and Vegetable pages at the same time. Bear with me...and stay tuned! :-D
