Having a flower garden here under the bird feeders where squirrels eat flowers, dig them up or break them off and where bears walk in the dappled shade of the Oaks is a challenge.
I bought flowers at two different places. Red, white, blue and yellow are the colors I wanted in the garden.
One tray of plants…the other got planted instead of photographed!
These are mostly new plants to this garden…we will see how they do.
Impatiens(red and white), Salvia (blue), Lantana( yellow), Begonia (red), Browallia (blue), Snapdragons (yellow), Lobelia (blue) and Pansy (blue). I wasn’t going to get snapdragons but they were yellow…what can I say.
I planted yesterday…in the rain…I was out there and had half of it planted when it began to rain…so I just enjoyed the rain and finished my project as it was the one thing I wanted to accomplish yesterday…well that and the third time mowing the lawn.
I trimmed around trees while keeping Odda company until her Mom came to get her. Our not so perfect lawn is a nice color green anyway…the dandys drive me nuts but the bees like them.
Far Guy picked these Pansies, they are not exactly the color he wanted…but he said “close enough.” I think he was tired of wandering around greenhouses with me.
Hopefully the bear is elsewhere…he hasn’t been here for several nights…when I was planting I thought about that bear and wondered where he was.
