I've had a suprise come up in the yard this year! I forced several amaryllis bulbs during the holidays, and then after they bloomed I hated to throw away the plants, so I just planted them in the yard. I didn't think they would come back, but I hoped they might, and...
Wooo hoooo! THEY DID!!!
Not all of them are blooming yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I wonder how long they will last?!
All those pitiful baby petunias I planted a few weeks ago have gone crazy! Hot pink for days! LOVE!
The yuccas are also blooming - weird but still pretty.
A few years ago, I found two hostas on the clearance rack. I planted them with no expectations, and they keep coming back bigger and bigger every year. I wish I'd found 20 of them, I would have just planted these everywhere. Perfect in the shade and so pretty! I need at least 6 more - one for this area, and then 5 around the tree in the front where I can't seem to get anything to grow. (Actually I think the squirrels eat everything I put in that bed.)
And one final shot - this is one of the sunsets I saw last week while I was in Florida. You know, I love me some sunsets.
Happy Good Friday, everyone!
