What have I been up to?
Sorry, haven't posted in a few days. Wondering were I've been?
Well, besides seeing the new Harry Potter movie, which was awesome if you must know, I made a new flower garden!
There is this wonderful greenhouse near my mom's, Groff's Plant Farm, that was having a one day customer appreciation sale. I got a flat of 18 perennials for $15.50 plus a free flat of annuals and that smoke bush I've been wanting for only $13.99! I LOVE this greenhouse! So I had to make a new garden to fit all these wonderful plants. Then my new flower bed needed a birdbath so I picked up this gorgeous wildflower and butterfly one at Roots Country Market. I think it fits in beautifully and birds were bathing in it within minutes.
Just some of the new plants I bought: Scabiosa, Bellflower, Leprechaun Gold Columbine, Pink Salvia, Cherry Blossum Delphinium, Devotion Blue Trachelium, St. John's Wort, Beard Tongue, Coreopsis Double Sunburst, Blanket Flower Burgundy, Red Fox Spiked Speedwell, Purple Volcano Lyre Leaved Sage, Angelonia, Pearly Everlasting, White Gold Lantana, Lemon Rose Scented Geranium, Mexican Heather, Cupid's Dart & Jacob's Ladder. I think some of the names sound so romantic:)
Okay, I really need to get some painting done now...
