Dwarf Gardenia 2013


Dwarf Gardenia May 23, 2013  This year I have planted 2 Dwarf Gardenias in my front yard where they can get plenty of sunshine.  They right now are loaded with blooms and have been continuously blooming for a month.  Pretty and sweet.  This plant grows to mature height of 3 feet with a 3 foot spread.   The white blooms can add a nice fragrance to any landscape.

PINK BEGONIA May 11, 2011


2 weeks ago.  I planted these Pink Begonias in my window boxes this year.  Begonias are a landscaper’s favorite. Superior performance with lots of color punch. They look great all summer until frost. Unlike some plants, begonias will bloom all summer without fizzling out with the summer heat. Little maintenance in the landscape provides an extra benefit. Dead-heading is not necessary. Bronze leaf varieties are best for use in the sun. Try green leaf varieties for shady spots.  Website  Begonia Flowers more info.    E How.com….on growing Begonias

Flowers in Bloom May 2011


Purple Periwinkle (Vinc Minor) April 2011 Oh how I love the sweet fragrance these flowers have.

Purple Periwinkle

This is a Bluish Purple Periwinkle.  I have this growing under my office window.  Early moring and late evenings while windows are up I can smell the sweetest smell as a breeze from the outside comes rushing in.

Impatients

I keep these in the shade at all times.   I have to keep them watered or else they droop very quickly.  They are so Impatient when it comes to watering.

Care for Impatients Flowers:

(GREAT TIP) If they start looking leggy late in the summer, trim off the top third of their vegetation. This will promote the emergence of new impatient flowers, plus the plants will look better overall.

Uses for Impatiens Flowers:

Impatiens flowers are one of the dominant bedding plants in North America, especially for shaded areas. They are also used in container gardens, ranging from hanging baskets to window boxes.

Origin of the Name for Impatients Flowers:

Impatiens flowers take their name from the Latin, impatiens, “impatient.” They are so called because their ripe seed pods will sometimes burst open from even a light touch (as if they were “impatient” to open). This characteristic is especially apparent in a relative named, “jewelweed,” indigenous to eastern North America.

See to touch a Rose


See to touch a Rose? The only way for me to capture the real beauty of my roses is through the lens of my camera. I love taking pictures of flowers. Photographing Roses is my favorite.Now to think I would love taking pictures as I do. My happiest moments right now and years past has been with a camera in my hand.

No joke. I must say it is joyful moments such as these you see here in my photos. Such beauty God created for us to see. I feel with our eyes we should be able to feel and touch. I look deep within the picture as if the picture can talk. Look closely at the Natural Beauty. Hear it speak. Today I share pictures for you to “See to touch a Rose.”
