I’ve never been one to enjoy gardening. I’ve always called it yard WORK with such a tone of dread. I would much rather do anything; absolutely ANYTHING else.
Then Sandpoint Idaho happened to me. Now I have two area’s in the front of the house. Small areas that are so full of blooms and colors that go out a weed and fuss everyday. WITH A SMILE on my face?! What has happened to me?!?! You know my Mom is up in heaven looking down and laughing like crazy.
With the help of my girl friends I’ve been able to add names to a few. However, there are several we can’t seem to name. One, I am 99% sure it’s a weed. HOWEVER, there is a tag under it that reads: Cascade Double Pink Petunia’s. Although I can’t seem to see a picture without blooms. So, if you have Petunia’s ……. is this what then look like before they bloom? Or is it a weed?? (I actually tore out 4 and kept only one. Let me know if I should be sad). The leaves are on the fuzzy side.
I have several bags of red bark to lay down as soon as the siding is done on the house. I figure why lay that down when it will be trampled on next week. It’s also another reason I wanted to add flower pictures now. I think a lot of them will get trampled. (Ahhhh the price of new siding!)
Granite rocks are everywhere. I actually believe the whole house is built on one giant rock.
I love the uniqueness of these flowers. The orange/reddish ones are my favorite.
This pretty little purple gems are sprinkled everywhere. In the cracks of the sidewalks, around bushes, around flowers.
I still can’t believe I get to say “This is my house” I am in AWE of the view every SINGLE DAY!!!
