The begonias are planted with impatiens and then down below are double impatiens with a pretty little ivy. I put these next to the front in the area next to the fountain I wrote about before. That little area is almost finished and when it is I will show it to you.
Just a close up of the begonias. I think they are so pretty.
We have had this pot with plants by our front door but some of the flowers died so I replanted 1/2 the pot with the hanging purple flowers. I have no idea what they are called.
I got some more fuchsias. I just love them. They bring me back to when I was a kid and would pop them in our yard. Of course I got yelled at every time I did it. There is just something about those buds that make me want to give them a little squeeze and here that little pop!
Then of course my roses. I just love these roses! These are the first roses I've ever bought. I've always be scared to try and grow them. I have no idea how to take care of them so if you do please give me some tips. Like when to prune them, feed them and so on. Do they bloom all summer?
My sister, Patty, got this pretty pot/urn for me to plant them in. You can't really tell from the picture but there is a hint of pink brushed into the color. But don't look to close because you will see a brick I forgot to move.
I feel like I've been spending a lot of time in the backyard lately but when I look around it looks like I have not done anything! Why is that?
I still have a lot I want to do. I plan on painting the swing on Thurs. Maybe that will help.
I had fun spending time getting my hands dirty and playing with the flowers. Hope you all had a nice day too.
