Spring Blooms

The only annuals you will find in my garden are the ones in my urns and hanging baskets. I find that if you plant them in your beds you will be spending the entire summer watering droopy flowers that can’t withstand the heat or a dry spell.  Not so with perennials, they send down deep roots so watering them is not a requirement, unless you have just planted them and they need a good start. Another plus, is you can split them after a few years and  expand your garden or give them away (or even sell them!)

Here is a catalogue of the flowers currently in bloom in my garden. Enjoy.
