In the last month I’ve taken time to put in two flower beds and double the size of my vegetable garden with help from my daughter Roxie and her husband Tom. I’m away from home teaching so much that in the past I’ve not really wanted to invest time and money into flowers I don’t have much time to enjoy, but this year I’m going to give it a try. I have one sunny spot and one very shady spot that are being turned into flower beds so off we went shopping for a wide variety of flowers! This picture shows Tom and I with two carts full of flowers and a few vegetable plants. I’ve never bought so many flowers at one time in my life, we had a blast!
We selected a mixture of perennials and annuals in a wide range of colors and the following pictures are of the flowers before they were planted in the new flower beds.
It’s going to be so much fun for me to watch these flowers grow the rest of the year!
