Love the light on these sweet flowers and how they seem to be dancing! O.k. so you have to use your imagination. :-) As I am SO VERY excited to be back in my home after six years of beach and then city life, each day is so special as I appreciate things such as having my own garden again. I have oodles of space for new plantings but out front I still have a few perennials that made it through the six years that I was away and renters who didn't quite love them as much as I do. I took a picture today of my first Shasta daisies standing tall by my front steps! I have been talking to an expert in native plants for our
area and hope to add some more to the front soon. Perhaps some wild azaleas and ferns.
I didn't even know the value of using native plants and just how many common flowers and shrubs are not native to our area. Less water, fertilizer, and pesticides are just a few
benefits. And the bees, insects and birds are happier too. See how much my life is enriched by having a garden again?
