I suddenly had a desire to plant geraniums. I don't know where this came from. I was studying my back garden the other day when it hit me. My gardens need geraniums.
Then I realized my front steps needed red geraniums. A splash of color for sure. Maybe it's the 4th of July inspiring me. Geraniums just seem to go with the 4th.
In the back I am going with pinks and whites around the cistern.
I just need to pot them today.
They will look pretty with the stonework in the background.
And look, the Oakleaf Hydrangeas are turning pink already. Autumn can't be too far off now.
I actually had trouble finding geraniums. Most places were sold out already.
I bought some roses and daisies too.
I am going to replant a couple of these lackluster beds.
My constant helper. She loves it when I work outside. I tell her we are going to do work and she runs out the back door. Then she lays down and falls to sleep while I work.
Hydrangeas are blooming.
More clematis on the back gate.
This is blooming by the pool.
I'm waiting for my gladiolas to bloom too. I've planted a lot of Zinnias recently. I've never had much color in my gardens but this Summer that will change. I've got to get everything planted because tropical storm Cindy is on the way!
