I've been so lazy in posting to my blog this past spring, so before it's too late I'm posting a few favorites from the last couple of months . . .
The lotus begonia graced us with her flowers for several months. She's located on the patio so I really enjoyed seeing the tall spikes of flowers every time I looked out the window.
Planted in regular soil and in full sunlight, this epidendrum orchid should provide plenty of blooms through the summer.
This bold purple petunia was a read standout next to the bright green leaves of fireball nandina.
This cluster of petunias came from two, yes . . . only 2, wave petunia plants. Plus, they've been blooming since November. I just pulled them out this week. What a bargain!
This adorable little cluster of native fleabane popped up on the edge of my driveway. It was so adorable that I just couldn't bring myself to mow them down. I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed looking at them . . . and, breaking the rules about eliminating weeds from your turf. ;)
These white vincas bloomed the entire winter. Not enough cold weather or frost to do them in.
