please share pics. thanks!
I would but it's winter and nothings blooming. My plants need some serious rearrangment though, the front yard just has stuff planted where they fit so it doesn't look like those perfect gardens in magazines. And the plants don't bloom at the same time so it's not that showy.
But here's what I have in the front yard:
one wisteria plant that blooms for 2 weeks in spring
one purple butterfly bush, blooms all summer
2 scented rosebushes, yellow and pink
small bright orange rose plant
scrawny light orange scented rose that needs to be moved to a better location
tall pink climbing rose bush, small flowers
a few mostly white trumpet lilies
one stargazer lily/red lily that may or may not grow back
couple of 4 foot tall pink cosmos that I grew from seeds
that sounds like a lot but it doesn't look like much. And then I had some flowerpots on the front steps that I grew blue morning glories and petunias in.
In the backyard which looks a lot neater I have:
2 pink peony bushes
3 orange/red lilies
2 yellow daylilies
8 new large flowerpots that I grew pink/red/purple wave petunias and herbs in. I should have taken a pic in late summer but they looked nice, the flowers grew over the edges of the pots.
