Now that the veggies are planted, I focused my attention to the flower beds and the flower pots. Last year my Dad and brother built these beautiful raised beds and I love them! To help control the weeds, I covered them with mulch after planting the perennials.
|This is a picture of the side yard taken early this spring (March). |
As you can see the perennials were quite small and I lost a few
despite the mild winter we had.
|I love the colors in this picture.|
|The yellow yarrow grew so well this spring.|
|The rose bush came back strong after being|
trimmed back hard last fall. It didn't bloom last year
so I took a chance and it paid off!
|I found this at a thrift shop and it looks great|
tucked in under the rose bush.
|The white geraniums and spikes in the container on my front|
porch create such beautiful shadows in the morning!
|Cone flowers are a staple in a perennial garden|
but these white ones are a bit less ordinary.
|These were commercially prepared baskets with|
ice lemon petunias and these beautiful blue
flowers. I love them.
