We are embracing spring and flowers this week and it makes me very happy! We are fortunate to live about 15 minutes from Powell Gardens where there is always something In Bloom.
On the way home we stopped at Colonia Nursery and bought some pampas grass. It’s been something I’ve wanted for many years…also bought some annuals for some pops of color. I’ve put some new perennials in this year.
And then annuals as perennials? Missouri winters are obviously warm enough to not totally kill seeds from annuals. Last year I had some marigolds come back and they were larger and heartier than I’ve ever had before. This year….the petunias….
The petunias in the bottom right and left corners came back from last year, I thinned half of them out and the bottom picture just the one on the lower left corner. This is such a sweet surprise… I’ll be anxious to see how well they do this year
Jax will be 3 tomorrow. I’m looking forward to a full family weekend.
Until next time…..
