Today sharing the little Hibiscus for Summer. These little annual plants will brighten the front entrance for a short while. I've tried to plant the perennial versions but have had no success, so for now this is the way I'll have them here.
Mama loved to garden so much and it made her smile to take us on a tour of her gardens when we would go over to see her. Such fond memories they are too!
What a pretty wet flower with a butterfly
I think this needs to be painted
The rooster was a gift from a friend
It was a very cloudy day but very peaceful
We have two bird nests on the front porch.
When the little darlings fly away the sanding and painting will begin.
Mama always taught us to make our garden base perennial. She would say quit spending all of your money on annuals for instant gratification. Add some of those into your gardens but make the most of it perennial! That will come back and multiply years from now and you be sure to share some of them with others so that they can have a beautiful base for their gardens.
Oh and also make sure you have evergreens in that base planting for sure.
She did love her annual zinnas and others for cutting and extra color.
I try to make sure to have a few but when I do I want them to make a beautiful statement!
Grandmother always said I want to tell you to grow more from seeds as well that will give you a bountiful healthy crop of flowers and you will know you've grown them from seed and such a price cut.
Container gardening makes for beauty in any setting. No spot to plant in the ground put into pots! Live in an apartment with a sunny window plant in a container, Do you have a balcony? Container planting can be a joy for you! Whatever you do enjoy growing flowers and vegetables!
Do you like the Gardenia Trees?
I surely do and they smell wonderful.
Hibiscus are so pretty, in fact they look artificial because they are!
I seem to be downsizing my flower gardening
But I have plans for cuter smaller ones.
I am planning and collecting items for a theme garden
The theme is kitchen gardening
It's not what you think
I'll share later!
