In an effort to bring a little spring glory into the garden for Easter, I thought I'd stop at our local garden center to peruse the current blooms. I love to bring new flowers home at this time of year. And what better time to visit the nursery than while my mother, an appreciator of all things botanical was with me.
But how does a young lady decide,
when these are her options?
It wasn't easy. We picked up some
happy Gerberas and planted them
in front of the house.
the month of May. This lady's name is Moonstone.
Her shape is lovely. She is a beautiful shade
of soft porcelain pink, and each of her blooms
will produce more than 35 petals.
This is Gold Medal. She's a grandiflora,
and I thought she would add some rays of
sunshine to the garden.
This tall hybrid-tea named 'Bewitched' was the
first rosebush my mom and I noticed at the garden shop.
The size of her blooms can be seen better here
next to Gianna for the sake of perspective.
And here they are, getting better acquainted
as ladies are so often inclined. The bush in the center
is this one from last month. Hasn't she grown?
Now, the only thing my garden is still missing, is all of you lovely friends to come for a tea on the patio!
