Spring Plants - New Life

Today is the spring plant sale here on campus. The plants are usually pretty nice, and reasonable. They have lots of flowering plants, trees and some vegetables. I'm picking up some tomato plants for the Contractor(he's got a garden going)and a flower or two for daughter #2. She has a flowerbed she's cleaned up and needs some plants for.

I'm interested in the Lantana's and wave petunias. My front porch gets a lot of afternoon sun and these are about the only things that do well that I like. Most of my flowergardening is done in containers on my porch. I'm not able to do what I used to, and out in the yard, things get overgrown pretty quickly. I do have a monkey grass border, but mostly just yard.

I'll try to have some pictures of what I buy on my blog tomorrow, then as the summer progresses, I'll let you see what a brown thumb I actually have.

Hope your garden is beginning to come alive. I'd love to hear about it.

Have a wonderful Thursday. Pray for our country. Love one another.

I'm embarrased to say that last year I chose to go with 'fake' plants/flowers on my porch. I just couldn't bring myself to waste the money on ferns and flowers that I KNEW would die....LOL...it's just inevitable!

I MIGHT buy some real ones this year? Maybe?

My garden is almost ready for planting. I'll have a post up tomorrow about it.
Hopefully this weekend I'll have some things in the ground.

Happy Spring! Your grandchildrens Easter pictures are just precious!
