MY GARDEN – MAY

I love seeing the seedlings emerge and get secondary leaves! But what I don’t love is weeds! Bleckkk! I spent a good part of this morning weeding my little garden and trying not to pull any seedlings out. After cleaning up a bit I got my camera out and thought it would be fun to play a little game! Can you guess the plants from the pics?

Freesia, Clivia, Iris

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 πŸ™‚ 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!

Clivia is another favorite of mine because of the shocking orange color! It reminds me of home in the Caribbean and the bright blossoms that can be found almost anywhere.

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!
