My House

Mom's been working out in the front garden. The front of the house faces East and gets the morning sun. She's planted lots of pretty flowers out there.

She has hot pink geraniums in boxes on either side of the driveway, and boxes of purple waving petunias on the side near the lamppost. She has a couple of pots of some fancy stuff (Ipomoea, Zinnia, Salvia, Lobularia and Verbena) that love the sun. She put two out front and put another one so she could see it from the kitchen window. She had one last year and the hummingbirds loved it.

She also put a big planter in front of the "crocodile rock" that has a Canna and something called a Rio and some other pretty white flower.

I snoopervised from the front porch. The front of the house faces East and gets the morning sun.

This is a Columbine in the shade garden on the North side of the house. Mom assures me she did not plant it this close to the house, but I cannot see it so I can't tell you for sure if she is right or just imagining things.

I can't see this bleeding heart from any window, but I think it's very pretty. Mom has been working hard to get this plant to grow, and finally it is doing it's thing after she moved something else to give this guy more space.

We are all set to watch the Tennis in Paris at Roland Garros.

The house looks fabulous. It's always fun to have something that the hummers love. I have a 5th floor balcony and they still come up for my flowers and friends of mine live on the 13th floor and they come there, too! I see you have a feeder, too.

Mum says give the bleeding heart a chance to really root in and grow. Ours is now in 3 years and really full. It is in a mostly shady spot and gets brief afternoon sun.
