Yesterday finally had time to nip into the plant section at Walmart...I know it is a little late in the season for just getting started, but hey I have only been in the house a couple of months and have a 2yr old. So I am browsing thru the pitiful end of season plants and find these lovelies on clearance for 50% off. I am a sucker for blue, and who could resist such a pretty shade. I also found some butterfly bushes on clearance for $1.50 each because their blooms are spent...I need to dead head and get them in the ground later today (I hope)
So back to the Evolvulus, after dinner Sara was a good little helper and we got them into pots (there is actually 2 pots...One for either side of the front step)...I added a couple of marigolds for added texture and some contrast in color.
Sara is so proud to have her very own watering can. Notice the blue of the house behind her matches our new flowers...Or should that be the flowers match the house?? well which ever way you look at it, they match *grin*
With their roots in new soil and lots of water to drink (thnx Sara) I was rewarded with our first couple of blooms this morning....Oh so pretty.
Today I am sharing my pretty flowers for
