Good morning, dear bloggers.
I'm feeling very springish (is that even a word?) lately. The weather has been nice the last few days so I went shopping last night at a little mom and pop nursery that I like. They give that extra bit of personal service that you can't get at a Home Depot. I had such a good time there enjoying all the fragrances from all the different types of flowers that seemed to be whispering to me with their colorful blooms, saying, "pick me, pick me". In the end, I opted for some simple impatiens because I know how they start off small but will fill out my flower boxes wonderfully. They will also continually bloom and hold up well to the full sun my porch gets.
Once I'd decided on the type of flower, there was another choice to make; what color of impatiens. I let Logan choose and he went for deep pink and red. I also bought my favorite hanging plant, a Million Bells. By the end of the summer that plant will be huge with tons of flowers. Jim rigged up something for me so I could hang it from my porch awning. While I was cooking dinner, I planted my newly acquired flowers. I'm all for multi-tasking so I went to play in the dirt while the pasta cooked.
Here's my pretty Million Bells.
And the deep pink impatiens. They are actually a deeper pink than the picture shows but it was past sunset by this time.
