Hello Everyone, Yesterday I took a late afternoon walk around the garden and saw lots of pretty blooms. The Day lily is blooming and the blooms are lovely. I don't like that they only last one day and wish they would last for weeks! That is why I need more plants and need to plant lots more bulbs. I would love enough to cut flowers for the house and studio, too, even if they don't last long.
You know, I think I had much rather plant and grow flowers than vegetables! It must be the artist in me, but I just love flowers of all types and want to spend most of my gardening time on them! Vegetables are plentiful and inexpensive in Florida and I am finding that I spend more on fertilizer and soil and plants than it is worth to have a few veggies.
I probably will still plant a few vegetables mixed in with the flowers, but I do love the flowers more!
Now that I have a successful hydrangea, I must get more of them! I love the big balls of color and hope to find some blue ones to plant. I hear you can change their color by adding acid to the soil; does anyone know how to do that?
The blue Plumbago puts one in mind of blue hydrangea, although their composite flowers are a bit differently shaped and aren't as dense. Exquisite color, though!!
The Crape Myrtle trees are blooming , adding more color to the garden. They are so pretty in summer; in winter, the trees are like dead sticks!!
