Scylla Sunday (Flashback) & What Mommy Got at the Herb & Garden Fest Saturday

I loves to sleep in Mommy's flowerbeds.


The flowerpots are pretty comfy too.

Except when Mommy waters them.

I am looking forward to the butterflies returning, they should be here soon. We have seen a few of the small yellow ones already.


I loves the Fall Flowers, the Ironweed is a special favorite of mine.


I loves the way they smells.

Mommy wants me to pose for her.


Mommy thinks I looks pretty with the flowers. She went to the Herb and Garden Festival in Ocean Springs yesterday. This is a list of the plants she got, she was very bad cause she said she wasn't going to buy anything.
  • Cranberry Lace Bee Balm - It blooms in the summer and fall so we will have to wait awhile to actually see it blooming in our garden. Mommy hasn't decided where to plant it yet.
  •  Trailing Tibouchina Centradina floribunda - Mommy got a hanging basket to put it in. One of it's names is Trailing Princess Flower and that is probably what we will call it.
  •  Red Cestrum Cestrum newellii - Mommy is going to put it in a pot as it is a tropical/tender perennial. 
  • This is our favorite of all the plants she saw and that she brought home. Butterfly Flower Clerodendrum ugandense , we bet you can't guess why it is our favorite? It will go in a pot too as it is a tropical/tender perennial. 
  • Chinese Bell Flower - Mommy should probably get a pot for it, she was going to plant it in a flower bed, but it's a tropical too. She had one a long time ago, before she had the green house but it died. She didn't recognize the name at the Herb and Garden Fest It is also known as a Varigated Abutilon
  • Red Firespike - It's going in a pot too. 
  • And the very last one Mexican Sage, Mommy is planting it down at the Hummingbird Cottage.
