I just love the bright colors of coleus (on the left):
It's the first time I planted this tall taro plant in pots and it did fantastic in full sun with little care:
The big green sedum plant (on the left) has come back for the past 4 years and just keeps getting bigger and bigger each summer:

The orange irises are no longer blooming but some purple lantana, petunias, and orange merigolds have taken over:
Stella's first foray into to gardening was a huge success - she planted these beautiful zinnias from seed. I think she may have a greener thumb than her mommy! These make great cut flowers and stay pretty in a vase for a couple of weeks:
Check out my rooftop garden from last summer to see how it has evolved.
