My Little Garden..

I splurged today.. and now have a small garden..

First I got this baby Arrow Plant..

..then I added 3 tiny pots of Mexican Heather..

.. a touch of some Snapdragons (had to have dragons in the garden!)

This Crimson Mandervilla I bought last week, along with the hanger..

I hurried home with this pot of Rosemary last week too..  I love , love love this plant! I have used some but if I even look at it I have to rub my fingers on it and then go around sniffing the Rosemary on my fingers!

..then I found my "namesake".. this is a Desert Rose!  (DesLily means desert flower..and I am sure I"m a rose! lol )

(close up)..

Here's a shot of it all together

... another view

The pond was very quiet at 8 am but I caught this crow looking at it's reflection..

... the the ghost of a moon still above..

My garden's not a lot but it will do.. and below are my cherub babies with a baby bunny.  When my neighbor moved I asked if I could have it and she gave it to me.

And that my friends is my Garden!

hi Tink: well I hope you can take pictures when you put plants outside so we can see! I do miss a veggie garden but apartments dont allow it and I doubt I could do the work anymore anyway..but it doesn't stop me from missing it!

Yesterday was gardening day here too! I got perselane in 2 colors to go on either side of my gate in the planters on the fence. I have 4 hanging baskets. 2 are waiting for more stuff, but 1 has.... Mexican Heather and snapdragons :) I have 2 standing planters, and I got some Mexican petunias and some butterfly weed for one of those. There hasn't been much selection yet this year for some reason. I'm leaving the other 2 hanging planters and the other standing planter open right now. I'm hoping to get some balloon plants and a couple of other things. I also re-potted my succulents. I had to add a couple since the cold weather got a couple of them. I have 2 small succulent arrangements in the house. I love my plants, and was so disappointed that the periniels I planted last fall didn't make it thru our rough winter. I cut them all back but I think only 2 made it :(

Your garden is lovely. Mexican heather is new to me but I like it, it's really pretty. Wonder if that's available here, must investigate. And snapdragons are one of my favourite flowers too.

Love the crow pic! lol

Chris: I wish I could afford more but this will do. Some people did plant tomatoe plants instead of flowers.. I wanted to but my last experience with veggies in fla wasn't pleasant, so I will see how everyone else's do and if they all do well I will do that next year instead of flowers (of all I got only the mandevilla and desert rose should make it thru the winter. (winter! oh how I wish it were winter already!)

jj: mexican heather and snapdragons! lol great choice! hahaha when I was young I was big into plants I'd mostly just like looking at everyone elses! (its and age thing lol)

Cath: it might be a plant in only areas that remain hot most of the year?? I dunno. I hope you have it or something like it.. it really is dainty and pretty

Thanks Kelly. Now the trick is to not kill them, which is a distinct possibility since it's been years since I've kept any plants what so ever...but for now they look nice!

I so enjoyed the walk in your garden.

I'm not getting around to read my favorites as often as I was in the past -- but I get here eventually!
