Flowers

Here are two pictures of my hanging fushia plant! Fushia's are so pretty and have such lovely colorful blooms.


Next is this hanging basket and I have two of these. Not sure what it is but it looks like little miniature petunia's.



This is salvia which is coming up in the flower garden. I like any plants that will come back up year after year! That makes it so much easier. I need to do a lot of work in my flower garden as you can tell by the weeds that live in there too. Ah well....one thing at a time. I don't stress over some weeds. I just try to look at all the flowering things and sort of "look over" the weeds and not let them get too big! I put down that liner that is supposed to keep weeds out but apparently it wasn't that tough because the weeds just grow right on through it over time. I think I need to replace it with some thicker kind and then add some more mulch. Always something to do around the house though. Always! It's Thursday night and I do hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and weekend. This Sunday will be Mother's Day so I know that some folks will have lots of activities planned. Enjoy!!

Nice photos Rachael. I too try and overlook some of the weeds. It is amazing to me how they grow when nothing else will. Hope you have a good weekend as well.

I SO love Fushias...I remember the first time I saw them in a basket, I just had to have it! They are so very beautiful!! Don't you wish our flowers would grow as fast and well as weeds do? lol xox

I love perenials! Bee Balm, or Monarda, is one of my favorites. It's in the mint family, but smells very sweet. Grows nice and tall and attracts...well...bees!

These are all just lovely:-). I keep trying to remind myself not to buy any right now until I get my yard work done. I have seen so many pretty baskets and plants I would just love to have *giggles*.
Have a great weekend!

Rachel...I think I have some salva too. It's not blooming yet like yours but that is what I remember it looked like last year. It is up and green right now, but I haven't seen a blossom yet, but I guess I need to go out and check it tomorrow...I might be surprised.

I have always loved fushia's, but for some reason have never had one. I love them so much that I have given them as gifts so maybe I need to buy one for myself. I think the fushia flowers are so lovely.

I do like you and look at the blooming flowers and don't fret too much about the weeds. I do try to keep them shorter than the flowers though.hehehe

The yellow flower is what I call "Million Bells"
I love fuschia but they were so delicate and didn't last long on my hot patio last year...

I'm so jealous of the fushia. I try and try but they just don't like to grow for me. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
