Favorite Thing Friday: Spring Flowers

Standard

As temperatures rise into the 80s, I figured it was time to fill my plant rack with some beautiful flowers. After months of looking at empty pots and a barren patio, it’s so nice go outside and see bright colors!

Pansies were among my grandmother’s favorite flowers. She said they looked like little smiling faces, so now that’s the first thing I see when I look at them. I’d say my new little pansies look pretty happy.

Then, there’s the “mini-pansies,” violas. Or as my grandmother called them, Johnny-Jump-Ups.

Adding a sweet aroma to the backyard is Stock. These beautiful little flowers will hopefully attract the bees we need to pollinate our citrus trees.

Aside from the plant rack, the plum tree is blooming.

For those of you still buried in snow, I hope Spring arrives soon. Until then, I hope my little flowers brightened your day.

  1. Hi C.B. How rude am I? I’ve only just noticed that you mentioned my blog. Thank you! as you know there’s been a flower desert for some time…we moved interstate and somehow blogging has become derailed , as has blog reading. My apologies and again thanks for the mention.

    I too love pansies and for the first time last year I was able to grow them…I was thrilled.

      This year we don’t have a garden and I miss it! The time I usually put into a garden was needed to care for my elderly dog, (he’s worth it). I hope you’ll have some lovely flowers growing around you soon!
