My urban garden on my patio is blooming! I am finally getting my watering schedule down and everything is looking good. My orange gerbera daisies are happy, and I love my fuchsia hibiscus! Every time I see them it brings back memories of Maui and puts a smile on my face. My hydrangeas dried up but I think they are coming back to life because the leaves are finally green again. My sunflower seeds that I planted two months ago are now over 4 feet tall! They are such growers! Look at the pictures below….you can see the sunflower is almost blooming but it is growing very slowly. I think they should bloom by the end of the summer and I can’t wait.

Well my obsession with flowers continues to grow (no pun intended). Now is the time of year I to start to brighten up my patio and that is exactly what I have done. Last year I planted some flowers on my patio in the spring and they lasted a long time but eventually wilted up over the winter. The only one that made it is my pink hibiscus plant. They aren’t fully bloomed yet but I will post some pictures when they do. The flowers make me feel like I am in Hawaii and are just gorgeous.
I think as I am getting older I have a deeper appreciation for my condo and making it look beautiful. And hopefully as I get older my green thumb will materialize because it is lacking!
Can’t wait to go back to the nursery and buy more flowers.
