Sunflowers, Daisies and Fuchsia Hibiscus

Posted on

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.

My obsession with flowers

Posted on

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.

My daisies and sunflower pots. Can’t wait for the sunflowers to bloom!

Gracie and my lavender hydrangeas! These are my favorite.
