Here are the sweet Johnny Jump-ups I planted. They make me smile every time I look at them. They are bright little gems that re-seed very easily.
These are the pots that flank my front door. They are tall Terra Cotta pots I found at Safeway for $12.00. I decoupaged the vintage french ad onto the pot using Mod Podge. I added 2 trailing ivy dark red geranium hanging pots for instant gratification :)
I adore these pale blue pansy's with the dark purple center and yellow eye. It's a soothing color combination and I just couldn't resist them :)
This is my "Yankee Doodle Dandy" lilac bush. They are a dark purple and smell divine. They don't have as much fragrance as my old fashioned lilac bushes, but they are so pretty, that I forgive them :)
These are my dainty daffodils (with grape hyacinths). They have a peach-pink center and the one in front is a double cream. I only wish they would stick around longer and show off the frilly dresses they wear every Spring :)
What would Spring be without Tulips? It never ceases to amaze me how these fragile looking flowers stand up to wind & rain. Like most ladies, they are stronger than they look :) Happy Maying!
