Thursday in the Garden

The Clematis, isn't it just gorgeous.

This is the bed it is growing in. The roses and honeysuckle have a head start on it because they are evergreens and the Clematis is a perennial.

This is the bed closest to the pond, Mommy had Daddy leave it open so she could see the pond from the cottage. The Rooster Violets are doing well in there.

These are some purrty pink violets growing wild close to the house (and the horrible Dollar Weed). Mommy said these pink violets grew in her yard when she was little. Violets are her birth flower.

Our Red Hibiscus. Doesn't it have a lovely bloom?

Mommy got some plants to plant.

The Crossvine is just stunning. Mommy had been wanting one for ever and we FINALLY found one. According to the guy at the nursery they do not bloom until they are three years old. That is why it took Mommy so long to find one. She asked for it three years ago.

White Lantana and Purple Fountain Grass. Our Lantana dies in the winter and comes back in the spring.

Some herbs Mommy got for the herb bed. A Nicotiana ( Tobacco plant) and our purrty purple plant we can't remember the name of right now.

We are headed over to Jonesie's  to make our report to The Society of Feline Gardeners.
