The Most Beautiful Time of the Year
I was out yesterday with a friend buying annuals to plant around my house. No matter how much I see them, I can't believe how vivid and colorful the flowers are. I bought these geraniums and dahliettas* to place on my front steps because there they will receive sun all afternoon.Now if I remember to water them, they should flourish!
Such a beautiful time of year for creatives. Mixing and matching flowers for beds and pots unleashes all of our creative energy. It can be so hard to resist overbuying and planting, but that could be a good problem to have.
I hope you can find time to wander through some greenhousess this weekend to inspire projects in your piece of the planet.
* Dahliettas, part of the dahlia family, provide "charming, profuse blooms in a wonderful assortment of flower forms and colors. (They) add a splash of color to the garden, combination containers or summer bouquets. (They) attract butterflies (yeah!) and are fun and easy to grow.
