The Mom LOVES her flowers and growing them so we thought we would start our annual "Spring into Saturday" posts where we will share some of the delights in our garden. Now our garden is no where as nice or as big as as Wyatts or Mitch and Mollies but we hope you will enjoy it anyway :) Things are just starting to bloom and here is what is happening in MY garden at the moment.
The azalias of coarse are blooming - both in pink and white
Mom forgot what this little purple ground cover is called but it is huge this year and so pretty. The Japanese Maple looks so pretty when the sun hits it the afternoon.
And then we have Mom's favorite - her rose which is beautifully scented. Mom had search for ages for find one that actually had a strong perfume. Did you know that that roses actually have 3 distinct scent categories. Floral, Fruity and Musk. For some reason Mom loves "stinky" plants - so of coarse she also has her gardenias in flower at the moment too. Mom was telling me about a carrion cactus she grew back home in Australia. It has the most beautiful leopard patterned star shaped flower - about 2" in size - but smells like dead carrion (rotting meat). Now that is my kind of plant - much better then those stinky things Mom likes!
