Happy Memorial Day!

The weather cleared up and it has ended up being a beautiful, but hot, Memorial Day! I worked outside for several hours today, moving things, planting, fertilizing, pulling weeds....all that "fun" stuff involved with flowers :) Here are some current pictures of our flowers, ignore any weeds you see, it got really hot and I had to stop working outside before I got it all finished!

Oh, just 8 1/2 days of school left!!!! 4 days this week and 4 1/2 days next week!!! I absolutely can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy the pictures!

Several hibiscus, red salvias, and Texas Betony are all in this bed

Baby Pink Salvia

Blue Plumbago bloom, Mexican Heather all around it

The plants in this flowerbed have grown so much since we planted them! The hibiscus on the left is a White Texas Star, it hasn't bloomed yet, but finally has some buds. The one on the right is Lady Baltimore, I have had 2 blooms on that one, but wasn't able to get a picture, I'll get the next ones for sure!
