Tardy to the Party

The gardening party, that is.

I spent my day planting flowers. That should have been finished Memorial Day weekend, but the time ran away from me. So today I went to Ponderosa Nursery. 

I bought gorgeous flowers, and lots of them.  There are wave petunias, begonias, Gerbera daisys, lobelia, potato vine, spikes, pinks, dusty miller, moss roses, wisteria, and a tree hydrangia.  There are also six hanging baskets, lots of filler for my antique tub, baskets, boxes and pots.  AND a huge flat filled with the most beautiful flowers I’ve ever seen.  I have no idea what they are, but they are breath taking.

Oh, and geraniums.

Honestly, I spent four solid hours planting and I’m only half finished.  I had to leave or I would have continued onward!

It’s been a few years since I’ve planted annuals.  My focus has been on filling my enormous beds with perrenials, since they are MASSIVE and I love the look of lush full-to-overflowing beds.  Last years additions were shrub roses.  I lost one, the others are thriving.  My Blaze climbers have gone nuts too.  Covered in blooms.  And my Peonies are stunning.
