Spring Flowers

A couple weekends ago, all four of us went to a local nursery we love around here, Roger’s Gardens (here’s a post I wrote about Roger’s Gardens for my other blog), and we oooh’ed and aaaah’d over all the beautiful spring flowers and Easter decorations. (Nathan mostly just tried on the funny men’s gardening hats and played with the windchimes.) I think we were all, though, just in the mood for spring, sunshine, pastel colors, rabbits and eggs. …

Rene had decided earlier in the week that she wanted to plant some flowers in our brick flowerbed, so we let her pick out some annuals. She also found two succulents she loved. As soon as we got home, she went into the back and spent about an hour in gardening gloves and planting soil.

Here’s what she planted. So pretty!

A “rose” succulent:

These cool bright-green succulents that looked so adorable in this heart-shaped clay pot (so we got the clay pot, too, and she re-created the look at home!):

Some bright purple pansies and daisies (and a little pink, for accent):

And a couple yellow pansies, which she put in our nonworking fountain:

It’s feeling like spring now!

  2. Superb site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Also would you mind if I show your site with my zynga group? There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. I find making decent articles a difficult thing to do. I seem to have a hard time writing my subjects into an article. I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later Appreciate it!
