Some of what’s blooming today, red and white petunias, pink calibrachoa, red and pink verbena, all purchased for a dollar each from the clearance rack at a big box home supply store I know doesn’t water well.
Each of the plants had little left to work with and no flowers, but a little coaxing and TLC and suddenly there are flowers!
I typically start my flowers from seeds, but had no place to do that this year. Purchasing flowers is expensive, especially when I’m also starting to build my new landscaping after removing a few really old trees. I can start the seeds for my perennials or get cuttings or trade with friends, but I really wanted some color.
This spring most of us have seen very few butterflies, and I want to be sure they have a place to go when they come back.
And I needed something new to photograph!. . . . . . .
