For some reason I gravitate to the pinks and purples. I have to consciously think and look for yellows and whites. Yellow and white is what makes a garden pop with color. So this past weekend I went shopping specifically for white and yellow.
I have never seen dianthus in white before. It is really going to look good in the gardens. I didn't buy enough of it. Hope Walmart has some left when I go on Friday. Really, I need to find somewhere else that has more variety than Walmart. I have some plants on my wish list so I need to find them somewhere. Do you have a wish list too?
The lemon yellow marigolds look good with the purples of the daisy's.
I added some soil around the snapdragons since the animals decided that was a good place to hide or hunt for a pecan. They are resilient though and are springing back already. Those are the prettiest flowers on the new verbena next to the snapdragons. Wish I'd bought more. It is shown in another photo here today.
I couldn't resist the purple white eye verbena. The flowers look like velvet it is so soft.
I had to have these Strawberry dianthus. They are so full of buds.
This is my favorite of the geraniums. The prettiest pink flower.
This dianthus from last year is really putting on a show here. I love that they don't mind the cold winters and come back a blazing in the spring.
This is the first bloom on this dianthus. I think it is called 'picotee pink'.
This is the verbena sitting next to the snapdragons. Such a pretty shade of pink.
The bougainvilla is about bloomed out for now. Most of the blooms fell with the strong winds we had Monday night.
The azaleas are also about gone. This was taken on Saturday but it is already looking ragged now.
Little nip in the air this morning. We have a cool 40 degrees but is warming to the mid 70's today.
Hope you all have a nice day.
