Anyway, I thought I would share some of my favorite blooms that are going on around our yard. Forgive the crappy, slightly overexposed, mid-day crap lighting pictures. I wanted to get these taken before the rain comes.....
I only know some of the plants names. Sometimes I just get what I think is pretty, try to remember the name so I can get it again next year, and them promptly forget it after I plant it. Oh well. Above - the reddish flower is an Ivy Geranium. Below - no clue. But it smells pretty. It attracts butterflies.
Below is allesyum. Yeah, no clue if that's how it's spelled. But it's teeny-tiny, and spreads like CRAZY.
Below is a mini-petunia. The one's I planted last year did not fare well - hoping they do better this year. Went with the same color as the first year I got them.
My transplanted Iris - courtesy of my friend Ginger.
One of the pots next to garage - geraniums, petunias and vinca vine. A VERY classic Michigan combo.
My personal favorite - some variety of daisy. This has already taken off. I am thinking I will be doing more pots of this next year. LOVE IT.My FREE marigold from the Tons O'Trucks. Emily helped plant this one.
More allesyum in a smaller pot - complete with Emily Flower stick. A mother's day gift.
Pink geranium on front porch.
AND - coming soon - blooms on my Hydrangea. Very excited about that.
Have a BLOOMING good Tuesday. Haha. I made a funny.
