Mothers Day Planting

We got to the garden center today to pick out some annuals and perennials.  Emma wanted to choose for a garden of her own, so we've given her part of a bed we created last year in front of the house.  It gets a good amount of sun, and here is the mixture of perennials and annuals that she chose:

We also planted the annuals in the barrels we have next to the back porch.  Then I lost energy, so the rest will have to be planted throughout the week. 

The plant in the center is corkscrew grass, which Emma spotted.  Here is a close-up:

 The spring bulbs are almost done, but here are some tulips that are still looking very nice.


  1. Love the cork screw grass but it loves lots of moisture!!!

  2. Thanks for the tip --I'll be sure to keep that pot well-watered :-)
