The Flowers in our Garden ...

One of my favorite things to do is work in the garden! I get the "GREEN" thumb from my parents! Here are a few pics of the flowerbeds around the house. I love them! This is out back ...
These next few are of the North and South sides of the house.
Here is the front of the house -- a side view.One of my favorite things is this little red wagon. There is a cool story behind it, too! I was driving home from work one day and someone was moving and had a pile of stuff out by the curb for the trash guys to pick up. I saw this little red wagon -- it's a Radio Flyer wagon, too! I backed up and asked the guy if I could have it. He said that the axles were rusted through and it didn't really work that great. I told him that I was going to put it in my flowerbed with some flowers in it! I put some red and white impatiens and 4 lime colored sweet potato vines in the little red wagon.
Here are a couple of my favorite planters. The chair is filled with an orange and purple pansy planter. The other planter is filled with a spike in the center, lamiam, Japanese fern, purple shamrock, wire vine and blue pearl impatiens. Mom and I went to a "Container Class" at a nearby greenhouse one night and this is what we came up with! I love it!
Hope you enjoyed some of the beautiful flowers!
