A Walk Through The Garden
Tuesday brought one of my favorite days of the entire year....shopping at the garden center! Oh how my soul leaps for joy when I walk into that huge greenhouse and see beautiful blooms everywhere I look. What a treat for the eyes and heart after a long winter.
Tables and tables of geraniums, impatients, petunias, snapdragons, dahlias, oh my! My heart just goes all aflutter looking at the beauty hanging from the ceiling!!
Of course, I couldn't walk out of there with nothing....no true gardener could, I don't think!
I brought home just a few goodies to put in a container on the patio. I am looking forward to a red, orange and yellow theme this year.
This isn't in that color scheme I just mentioned, is it? Well could you pass these up? A verbena color I hadn't seen before, "Lanai Twister Pink". I'll just have to bite the bullet and find somewhere to put them!
Last year I had one of these adorable Rock Foil, but it didn't make it through the winter, so I had to replace it.
Isn't that adorable? A perfect addition to the rock garden. So delicate, I love it.
And of course, I couldn't walk out of there without a couple of hanging baskets! This one will most likely be sitting up by the patio in this big repurposed keg! I usually take the hanger off and then it just looks like a beautiful potted plant without all the work!
Then in my shade garden I thought I could use some color back there amongst all the hosta, so I went with a bright red double impatient!
So there you have it! A quick walk through what's happening in the gardens around here.
How is your garden growing!!
