My poor front garden has been sorely neglected this last month or so...things are going to seed left and right and the weeds are taking over....Which is why I need HELP from those of you that can identify plants at a glance.
Is this a weed or a plant I should keep??
The flowers are about the size of a quarter I guess and though they look like a hibiscus flower to me, the leaves look nothing like the ones on my standard size hibiscus bushes.
Been super lazy on the front porch too, and used these lovely ferns that were given to me by my MIL, to hide the mess on the shelves we use for putting the seedling trays when we are starting plants...Maybe one day when I have a greenhouse I can move the shelves from the porch all together.
Thank goodness for mulch or I think I would have lost this to the grass along time ago.
The rose in the suitcase does not seem to mind being ignore for the time being and has even grown a companion basil plant volunteer...You see how shaggy the lawn was getting...I took this photo yesterday morning and hubby came home from work and mowed the front yard..
The Daisy bushes and mum's are doing well...though I see a few stray weeds since I never did find the time to remulch this bed over the summer...
The sweet potato is blooming among the weeds in the middle garden bed...
The Mexican Petunias are filling out nicely and giving a good show each day thanks to all the rain we got at the beginning of the week.
