If you're wondering what's kept me so busy, I'll tell you. I've been making the world a more beautiful place. Well, maybe not THE world, but at least MY world.
On Sunday afternoon, my daughter and I went to the local greenhouse to pick up some flowers. I bought quite a few flats of annuals as well as some perennials and I've been busy finding homes for all of them.
I tried to step out of my comfort zone a little bit this year and include some pink and burgundy along with my usual purple/white/yellow color scheme. The only pink I've had in the past few years has been my roses and the blossoms on the apple tree. I also bought some plants I'm not terribly familiar with, but just couldn't resist.
This Spider Wort is new to me, too. I've admired it at the greenhouse in the past, but never bought one. I was so drawn to the color and the fact that it could be grown in the shade, that it practically jumped into my cart. I wonder why such a lovely plant was given such an ugly name.
