We redid this flowerbed earlier this year and I am still enjoying the newness of it – after having been used to bushes that were planted 48 years ago.
I also added a few potted flowers – something that rarely works for me because I forget to water them. I was determined to take care of them every day this summer – and have been successful so far.
This was a gift from a friend – which also adds some new beauty to this flowerbed.
I got two gerbera daisies and have been pleasantly surprised that they are flourishing in this bed.
Geraniums are a usual annual for us because I like red, and they do well in our yard.
Out farther in our yard the crepe myrtle is beginning to bloom, but seems to be behind many others in our area.
It looks like the beetles like it too. 🙁
I am not sure what these are called – I bought them for the pretty purple flowers and promptly forgot their name.
August flowers are pleasing to my eyes.
