Now that Christmas is over and even though it's not the new year yet, here I am already thinkin' about spring!
Well, it's not too hard considering it's still 80 degrees plus down here in the south.
Yum, I love the combination of pink, purple and blue and that combo always says 'Cottage Flowers' to me.
And I love cottage flowers A LOT!
These are Ivy Geraniums.
This is about the only time of year I can have these types of flowers, so I go all out and indulge my craving for these cool weather beauties.
This pansy is that wonderful blue-violet color that is my absolute favorite!
Since I really, really love this color, I'm posting one more shot...
These white geraniums are a lovely accent against all that lush color.
Oooooh, oooooh, oooooh Hot Pink! This Bougainvillea isn't what I'd consider a cottage flower, but it is kind of dainty and lacy and I think it fits in okay along with the English garden theme.
Pink Impatiens and Ivy work okay too.
I know I can't truly have an English garden in southwest Florida, but I can have my version of it and even though it's mostly in containers, and only lasts a little while - it's my little sanctuary and it makes me happy. And that's what a garden is suppose to do! : )
