Over spring break, Home Depot ran a super sale with azaleas for $1.99 and 4-inch pots/plants 3 for $1. So, I stocked up on the limited amount you could get and I had been wondering what to do with them when Army of Dad suggested putting a little garden around the mailbox. We can't seem to get the grass to grow there, so why not? We had these paver/boarder stones around the tree at the side of the house, but when I expanded my side garden, we absorbed the little garden around the tree into that one. So, I removed that border and wondered what I was going to do with it. So, this was a great place to use it. I have a few more that I may make another semi-circle garden in the back yard or maybe even another part of the front yard. I'm not sure yet.
I love this time of year when it comes to my yard. Not so much for Hot Rod's allergies, though. But, our little peach tree in the front yard looks like it may have a bumper crop of peaches this season.
And, one of my favorite plants that I use alot. But, I have no clue what it is. Does anyone know what it is called? I got some originally from my mom and I just managed to grow these things like crazy (you'd have to try to kill them for them to die). But, I would love to know what they're called.
And, my little front garden is full of blooming amarilis in a lovely red with white stripe. I got these from my mom, too. I love getting free flowers. ;) I love the little butterfly thing I got at a craft show several years ago.
