Like this petunia--and the one following.
My perinnials are pretty this year--even with all the cold ice this past December, they seem to have survived quite well. This one has the biggest leaves--when I first put it in the ground it was tiny, and the name "big leaf" seemed like a distant dream. And now this year--here it is--taking full advantage of the area!!
Then I have these in the garden--they too are returning hosta, and don't know if you can tell, but two of them are getting ready to bloom. I adore my hosta--I keep adding them and dividing them--pretty soon the whole side of the house will be full of hosta. They just speak to me tho. So pretty and different.
I planted a hydrangea bush this year behind the big leaf hosta. It's supposed to be blue, and probably won't flower this first year of planting, but I am also drawn to hydrangea. They remind me of my grandmother's garden. So I hope to eventually have more.
In the back yard I have a peony bush--another one of grandmother's favorites. It isn't blooming yet this year, but when it does I'll share a picture with you. I also have some poppies and hollyhock planted from Mosiac Queen. Hope I have good luck with them.
Can't work in the garden this week tho cause of my stitches in the finger---it's amazing how we take our fingers for granted! Each one of them has a duty and a function, and I must say--I really miss having all of them in full working order!!! And you can't believe how many times a person bumps her fingers in the course of one day---usually it's just bumped and on you go. But when bumping results in P-A-I-N well, you become aware of the bumps!@!
I really don't have much interesting happening right now, so I'll close--just wanted to share a few pretties from the outside!
