Every year in early spring we go to Home Depot, Lowe’s and Green Thumb to replace our annuals. Last year I discovered the insanely perfumed freesia!The scent is amazing! Almost like a rose on steroids! I bought 4 plants and I planted them near my front door so everyone could smell them while they came up the driveway.
I also wanted them planted there because that’s where I love to sit or have my evening tea. My hubs bought a falling apart bench and he totally refurbished it and even got me a fancy pillow 🙂 But the best part was the price! He paid $5.00 for the bench! And now I have a comfy place to sit and read or play Hay Day and Candy Crush * don’t judge me*, and the best part is the smell of freesia in the air, which I think smells like heaven!
My faithful Iris returns every year bringing forth more flowers each time. The amazing blue-purple with a bright spot of yellow contrasts so beautifully and stands out in my front garden. I just wish its flowers would last all year long!
