These are the new flowers I planted to fill in around the new shrubs. The Alyssum (left) is planted along the front walk. The Viola (right) is planted in the front courtyard. As you can see they are just little plants waiting to grow and fill in the empty spots. I planted 12 Viola and 6 Sweet Alyssum plants.
And these are the old established plants. From left to right they are Mexican Sage, Dahlias, Gerbera Daisy, and Double Delight Rose. The Mexican Sage, the Gerbera Daisy, and the Rose are new from this Spring. The Dahlias are volunteers from last Summer. I know I keep putting pictures of the Rose in the blog, but each bloom is a little different and each one seems more beautiful than the last.
Weather Report: It is 99F degrees in the front courtyard today, but the weather man has promised a genuine cold spell beginning on Sunday. Humph.
