For this thoughtful post, I am turning to flower power. Since it is May in Kentucky, now is the prime time to add color to your outdoor view. This spring has seen a few new additions around here, both perennial and annual. The raised flower bed behind the garage that we built this spring is going to be a perennial bed, but perennials aren’t cheap so I am starting slowly.
So far, I have planted 4 shasta daisies:
Four perennial salvias:
C & I also planted two knockout roses that my grandparents wanted moved from their landscaping. They are still trying to settle in and right now look a little sad, but they are hanging in there. In another bed are two new dwarf red Asiatic lilies that were a spontaneous purchase at Lowe’s.
In the two flower pots I have on the back deck, I used hot pink geraniums with white summer snapdragons, white calibrachoa and a spike.
Oh, there is also a new little gem in there, a double calibrachoa called Calibrachoa Mini Famous Double Amethyst. I just love this little pot filler!
On the front porch pots, I always do red, white and blue so this year it is filled with a spike, red geraniums (with the biggest blooms I have ever seen), white summer snapdragons, and blue fan flower.
