With our 100+ temperatures, I'm amazed that my flowers can bloom in the heat! Most all came from our FFA greenhouse in May.
The petunias don't seem to mind, but the snapdragons will wilt in the afternoons. These are so different than the ones I remember pinching open when I was young.
The petunias are happy sharing with the licorice plant.
Before the rain (YES!! we had rain!) last night, I wanted to make sure I snapped the phlox. The hail didn't come so they are still looking pretty today. Very early this summer!
Every year I splurge and buy a special variety of petunias for this pot. There's ONE plant in the light gray pot and it will continue to grow and bloom. I did learn not to give it any fertilizer last year. It just grew "leggy" and didn't stay compact.
A wee fairy found a spot in this pot.
Her name is ARIA. "With each wind that flutters through the trees, Aria uses her song to invigorate the plants and creatures of the garden. They grow and become more enchanting with every note she sings."
After more years than I care to admit, I'm now a retired teacher. I'm a Colorado native, love to play the hand bells at church, will always choose reading over cleaning, and I dearly love my family. In the spring and summer I love to get out in my flower gardens and play in the dirt!
