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!!
