More from my garden
My planter bench has coleus, petunias and blackeyed susan vine.
♪ ♫ I never promised you a rose garden ♫ ♪
These were hacked out of my friend Pam's garden. She being a non gardener didn't understand why I was so worked up when I found out she was throwing these away. So I drove over to the Milford area and came back with a carload of of half dead roses, fountain grass and succulent ground cover. I am happy to say not only did they all survive--they thrived.
These transplanted orange lilies are from my friend Vicki. She hauled these (and quite a few other plants) in her van last July when she came back to the Cincy area to her mom's. She said I have a few plants few you, haha It filled my little Ford Focus. I was a sight to behold cruising down the highway with plants everywhere. It definitely garnered more than a few second glances. It is unfortunate there are no pictures.
Lovely lavender. This is my replacement plant because 2 yrs ago the hubbs thought he would "help me weed" when I was laid up really sick and he wiped out my 5 yr established lavender bed. URGG I could have just throttled him. That is why all of the planting beds are delineated with rock or boards. And I recently began installing plant markers. I love Love LOVE lavender!!
These aren't in my garden but I really like them. My daughter and I went Home Depot and she found all the succulents on clearance for $0.50-$1. So I bought them (obviously) and potted them up. The red pot is hers. The metallic vessel she made for us when she was in high school. Maybe 10 yrs ago.
I have some planter boxes on my back patio (some mint and herbs--which smell soooo good!) and something caught my eye.
So I guess I am not the only one likes all my plants!
