Spring in My Garden


I don't know what it is about working in my garden, but I love it! As those of us that crawl around in the dirt, haul soil, and all the rest of the "work" we do, it's all for the rewards we get in the end that make it all so worthwhile. I so, so love these sweet peas!! The color is so different than any that I've had in the past. Brande planted these for me awhile back and I'm pretty sure they are from Annie's Annuals as is the rest of my garden!


A single yellow rose always reminds me of my Mom! She loved her "yellow rose" of Texas!


I really enjoy succulents.  I kind of got into them last year. There is a huge variety to choose from and they are so easy to take care of. I also have them all over my house.


This is my big tub of succulents on my front porch. I love the old cement angel. She doesn't look like a heavy girl, but let me tell you, she's solid!


The rustier and worn the birdhouse, the better I like it!


My hollyhocks have grown totally out of control this year.  They've taken on a life of their own!

 
Here is another one of my favorites in my garden, and of course it too is from Annie's Annuals. We sell all of these plants in our garden at Country Roads called Johnnye Merle Gardens and Nursery. My oldest, Brande, owns the nursery and many of you know that she named it after her Gramma, my Mom!  Brande posts daily on her Facebook page, "Johnnye Merle's Gardens". Annie's Annuals, by far, are the best and have a huge selection. So with that said, time to move on and wishing you all a fun time in your own gardens as well. Take care!

Love seeing the beautiful blooms, the only thing I have seen here are a few crocus & the greens of soon to appear tulips & daffodils.... Still Cold here! I love seeing the succulents, I want to make a wreath I saw on Pinterest, it is little clay pots all wired on a wreath form, I want to plant it with different succulents - don't you think that would be pretty! just not sure if it would survive indoors in the winter....
have a great week,
Cheryl

I never had a green thumb that's why I admire patient gardeners. In my next life I'll work harder on it, for now I just admire pretty gardens!!

I am so inspired. Sweetpeas and hollyhocks are among my cottage garden varieties favorites. The get along visited Annie's Annuals a few years back. Just a awe inspiring place to visit much like Country Roads.

Thank you for brightening my day dearest. e
