Plants in Pictures
Today was my annual excursion to the garden center with my Mom. Her Mother's Day gift from me each year is this short road trip and as many plants as she can stuff on the little cart that the garden center provides.
Not surprisingly, my favourite greenhouse is the one with all the herbs.
My mother has a real love for marigolds. I don't understand it at all.
Multi-coloured lettuce excites me.
Every witch needs some dark red geraniums outside the front door.
It's hard to see, but this lilac is dark purple with a light pink outer edge. Gorgeous!
The names of plants always intrigue me.
Two things I generally fail at growing. Roses and corn. Roses, I don't miss. But I do love the look of rows of cornstalks. *sigh*
I hope the weather is conducive to planting wherever you are. Do you have a favourite plant, or something that grows especially well for you?
