One thing I've enjoyed through the years is watching perennials re-bloom in the pots they were planted in the previous year(s). This way, I don't have to go out and buy new plants and then plant them. An instant garden of delight appears on my deck each year.
Here is some Yarrow that was planted 3 years ago:
Here are some Garden Phlox (paniculata "Laura")--they have the most delicious smell!!!
Here are some mums that were given to me as a hostess gift years ago, somehow I haven't been able to kill them along the way:
These "bunny ears" were given to me by a neighbor at least 15 years ago:
Here's a wonderful jade plant that I've had for 20+ years. I bring it inside each fall and outside each spring:
Of course nothing can replace the fresh basil and potato vines that have to be planted fresh each year:
Hope you're enjoying the summer weather and if you'd like to buy or sell a home call me today!
