For a long time I didn't know what to do with this narrow, south-facing strip on the front of the house, but I finally decided to plant some vinca annuals given the hot location. They LOVE it, and I never dreamed they would have filled in this much area!
These impatiens have filled in even more here now, but I'm too lazy to go get that picture. These have done well, too! One of my few shady areas.
And finally, here are a few recent bouquets. Love this time of year for bouquets. The summer flowers are all blooming, so I can put vases in every room of the house if I want!
