Every Spring I always pick up potted Petunias to hang from my deck
The white ones were a gift from my husband a couple of years ago
My petunias get Huge and so pretty, I dehead them everyday
they just get larger and larger!
I have Pink and Yellow Lilly's that grow but honestly they just do not
last long enough, I love the beauty of them and watching them burst into bloom
I have plans to add several Hostas to my backyard this year
We have contained our chickens in a pen
last year they roamed free in my backyard and
Well I lost my grass and everything back there, so this year I hope to add some shade loving flowers to that area
What would you suggest for shade?
And we will be planting some herbs for our chickens to feast on around their pen
Each year I change colors on my petunias this was last years flower
Not sure what I will go with this year possibly Red or a solid purple
He is not easy to see but the cardinal was enjoying bathing in the sprinkler
We have honeysuckles on the back of our picket fence, about three different
ones, I am hoping they start to bloom longer then they have, my dad had a
beautiful honeysuckle plant that I always admired
Yes I am planning and thinking of adding things that are new
to my yard this year.
The above picture got lots of attention a few years back
My elephant ears this year will be thicker
last years heads were HUGE! I love this photo with the little garden snake
coiled around the stem
I always have Sweet Potato Plants here and there
I have tons of these plants growing in different places they Multiply
I keep having to move them around
My dad had this plant, my sister gave me some and I have so many
I have to weed them out now. They bloom in late summer, and stay green from early spring until winter begins. It is actually referred to as a cemetery plant
They do not require much attention and grow and grow
I love the delicate flowers on them when they bloom even though I know
it means summer will soon be over with!
I have tried Clematis, and had no luck with it, although I love the plant?
I did plant Morning glories on my fence last year they were beautiful
but I planted them too late to get much enjoyment out of the flowers
I am looking for some great ideas for Perennials this year
please do share some of your favorites with me
As I am dreaming of Spring time :)
Have a Wonderful weekend
