It's January, But Feels Like Spring!
I just popped on to wish everyone a beautiful New Year!
Suddenly, I'm getting in the mood for some pretty spring cottage flowers in my favorite colors of purples, blues and pinks.
So I thought I'd post a few photos from my garden in spring past...just to help ooomph up my mood. And I hope that you, too, will enjoy the splash of color coming up!
Around here, it's not hard to think that it's spring already - we've had very warm temperatures. Although, we have had a sprinkling of cool hours during the morning and evening.
Just a sprinkling though...
Gosh, I love these colors!!!
I think this violet-blue hue is my ultimate favorite.
Yep, I think so!
Although it really is hard to choose.
Now, I certainly do apologize that I'm posting mostly my container plants and not showing my garden beds. That's usually how I grow these more delicate flowers that can't take the sun.
I can move them around a tad and they'll last a bit longer. However, these Pentas do very well in the sun, and I love their 'purpleness', so I've stuck them in here :)
Well, I do believe I've put myself right into a planting frenzy!
I plan on posting more regularly this year and maybe revamping the blog a bit. I'm sorry I've neglected to post much these last few months - stuff happens, as I know you all know :)
I also want to thank you all for your lovely comments that you leave here. I haven't been on top of my responses lately and I plan for that to change as well!
This photo is not from my garden, it was taken at a lovely rose park up north. But it fits the mood and I hope you enjoy looking at all these lush roses!
