The shadows of the Spring setting sun at the home of Flowergardengirl. All the front pots are planted and some of the annuals are in the ground. The vegetables still need to be placed in the beds and many of the annuals are not blooming yet. There will be blues, whites, yellows, hot pinks and soft pinks and a tad of peach.
Hot pink will be the dominate color this year as it calls out from the bee balms and buddleias. White will come from the petunias and hydrangeas while blue will be featured in the salvias and angelonias.
There is artichoke just sprouting and tripods of tomatoes will come along soon enough. Carrots and radishes jump out of pots planted right beside narrow leaf zinnias and nasturtiums. Red Knock Out roses upstage the picture often when in full bloom.
Sunflowers take over in the latter part of summer and arrive at intervals just as they have been planted. Being at my house– from now as these first green shoots appear until just a few weeks from now with a colorful array of flowering annuals and perennials—will certainly say you are at the home of Flowergardengirl. ……..And most welcome you will be!
To see all the pictures taken today, see my album HERE.
Thank you to my sweet husband and son for helping put down the new compost for this year and dividing some of my perennials.
A note to my readers: I’m doing well since my surgery but the potagers that were suppose to go on each side of Copper Top Cottage will not get done this year. Once I feel better, I’ll get started on building them for next year. For now, the vegetables will somehow–fit in the flower beds. Thanks to all for your well wishes.
