Yes, we have a flower fairy. Her name is Kristi. She had our son take her and the boys to Home Depot and they came home with lots of wonderful things! Dayle and I came home from a meeting on Monday evening to many of our pots replanted with wonderful and exciting new flowers! It was so cool! She got this Gerbera Daisy that I think it so neat! She planted a pot with this, a Martha Washington Geranium and a red Peony!
On our way to town yesterday we passed this field in Springdale next to the Fire Station that every year is a striking mass of Lupine. I made a mental note to stop on our way home and get a photo.. isn't this amazing? And all wild flowers that self seeded over decades.
They brought home this lovely and full fuchsia, too.
My old pot of chives has gotten LOTS of water this year and it's never been so tall with such big flowers. Love them.
Kristi potted this one up and I love these flowers and have never had one.. but it had no tag and we don't know what it is. Readers? She also put in a dark read "corn" type plant for height. (ETA - The pink flower is a Mandevilla Dipladenia Pink.)
I'd gone out on the deck to take photos with my iPhone as I can't find the battery charger for my Lumix (grrrrr) and noticed that Simba was there.. I'm happy to say he stayed there while I walked around the deck so he must be trusting me more, which is good.
Kristi got me this cool re-blooming lilac last year, I think it's clever name is "Bloomerang Purple". Ha! But it's doing well and filling out and blooming prettily.
The kids bought 2 big pots of flowering hanging baskets for Mother's Day, they're just beginning but will turn into quite the show stoppers.
Kristi also noticed that our older Jasmine was not doing super well so she bought two more big plants and planted them for us. :-)
This is the pretty Peony she got.. have you ever noticed how cameras have a problem with bright colors?
This is the wettest Spring on record for us.. but let me tell you.. the Hostas are HUGE and full as never before!
Kristi planted this wonderful orange Exbury Azalea last year and it's doing very well in the space where she put it.
A closer shot of the new type lilac, it smells the same as the old style ones.
Here are a few other things awaiting their new pot.. it's going to be colorful around here this summer! Thank you Kristi and Travis!!
Do you plant flowers around your home? What is your favorite variety? Do share with us! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
