The container plants are already growing, too! I still do not know exactly what these are, but by August they produce the most delicate purple flowers--and if you've been reading my blog awhile, you know how I love purple!The forsynthias are in bloom, adding a splash of yellow--too bad they don't stay yellow all year--but green is nice, too! Anything is better than brown!Lastly, this is a bush that I transplanted from our other house. It makes beautiful, yes, purple, spear shaped flowers. Best of all it attracts butterflies & hummingbirds. I hope they find the bush relocated around the corner! I tried rather unsuccessfully to get some photos of the hummingbirds or perhaps hummingbird moths-not really sure yet what they were,but they had bumble bee colored bodies--maybe I'll have better luck this year!
Hope your weekend was nice! I'm looking forward to getting my creative juices flowing again!
