Gwen helped me plant my flowerbed with begonia, geranium, vinca, evolvulus, basil, oregano, and lemon thyme. This is a "before" picture, waiting for an "after" when everything begins to grow.
My maidenhair fern puts on lush new growth as soon as the weather begins to warm up. My mom always grew this and it is a sweet reminder of her love of her yard.
One of my favorite plants is Evolvulus, often called Blue Daze. It is not always available, but I love to have it.
For several years I have taken care of my hydrangeas, and I think this will be my reward. Here are the first blooms, and there are flowers in lots of the stems. The plant looked dead in our few freezing days, but apparently it was not harmed.
