Mom's 'Garden' - Take two!

 

Do you remember back in June when I showed you around my Mom's 'Garden' - all her potted plants on the deck?

Well...if not you can click the link above to go to the post...because this is an update! Some of her plants have gotten rather larger since then...

Like the minature rose bushes that flank the front doors!



The one on the left has espically gotten large...and so many flowers!



Mom thinks it's just so pretty!

Remember her little corner garden?



Still going strong! The geranium is looking a little worse for wear, (my aunt Sarah isn't a super great plant-sitter! BOL) but with some extra care and Miracle Grow mom says it'll bounce back!

Now, for the Dahlia plant...

...also still going strong!



It even get regular visitors to it's pretty flowers!



The little pot of coleus has gone BONKERS!



Mom just loves it!

Now, here are two things you didn't see last time.

These are at the top of the deck steps and are one of the first things you get to see. A window box of...well...actually...Mom forgets what they are. She also has them in the corner portion. SOMEWHERE in there she is sure she has the plant identification tag...somewhere...



The second thing is this planter. Mom is very proud of this one as she put it together all herself! In it is a spike plant, Persian shield, a tiny white flower (mom doesn't remember what it is!) creeping jenny and a variety of petunia.

Isn't it pretty?!


Mom just loves it!

And well...that's about it for Mom's 'Garden' update.

Hope you liked seeing all mom's flowers and stuff!
