So these pictures only show some of the plants that I helped plant in my Mom's front yard for Mother's Day. I had NEVER planted anything before this, and after finishing, I am realizing I LOVE gardening! So here are just a few parts of my mom's front yard.
This shows a lot of what we planted in the ground: eridgeron (sp?), short grasses, wallflower, dahlia, calla lilies, fountain grass, and hawthorn bushes (in the back), plus a bird bath! We also have geraniums, more hawthorn bushes, day lilies, thyme, rosemary, impatiens, and alyssum not pictured.
We also planted a Japanese maple. I love the color of the leaves.
Now onto the potted plants:
Marigolds and lobelia!
Sweet 100 cherry tomatoes!
And my favorite pot so far: basil, oregano, chives, and parsley! I have been using these herbs like CRAZY and they just keep growing more and more and more!
After doing all of this, I am planning on starting my own potted garden in my new apartment! I am so excited!
Thanks for reading!
