First... Lady M. My beautiful niece, Marcy... who lives across the country from me in Puyallup Washington... has started a blog. She is married to great man and has two wonderful children. Marcy has decided to home school her son... so she has her hands full for sure now. Marcy likes photography like me, but her blog is about her beautifully decorated cakes. Please make her feel welcome and comment on one or two of her cakes.
I planted a few flowers this weekend. I wanted perennials that would bloom from spring to first frost.
I took these pictures with my old Sony F717... it is lighter in weight than my newer camera. My arms are sore from digging.
As we were walking into Lowe's we spotted the pots with Purple Verbena and Purple Salvia. I liked them and put them in the cart. The verbena is the perennial type from what the girl putting plants outs said... but who knows, she may know about as much about plants as I do.
Frank put some potting soil in the cart and then went inside Lowe's to do his shopping. I wanted perennial plants that would bloom from spring to frost. I bought two Homestead Red Verbena and two Dwarf Coreopsis.
Then Frank joined me and on the way to the checkout we spot the beautiful Aurora Light Blue Delphinium. Frank loves blue. He picked out the healthiest looking plant, but its blossoms haven't opened yet.
I know not many plants, but for me who hasn't done much digging in the dirt in a long while... it was a job. I moved a couple of mexican petunias around and a couple of irises. I'll take more pictures as time goes on.
