Didn't mean to stay gone for a week.
It's been super busy here.
I spent this morning working out in the yard and loving the progress of our plants.
One of my favorite things about gardening is combining different plants together.
Here are some of the combinations we have growing this year...
Remember when I showed you my garden cart a few weeks ago?
You can see it here when it was first planted.
The plants above are in that cart. :)
Yes, they are big and overflowing now.
The combination: geraniums, coleus, sweet potato vine, rabbits ear, and bacopa.
This trio of pots sits in a hot spot on the patio.
The combination: muhly grass, lantana, and asparagus fern.
Muhly grass is perennial here.
I've never planted it in a pot before this year but I'm already convinced that it's a good idea.
The pot on the patio table is in full sun.
The combination: aloe vera, moss rose or portulaca, and purslane.
These little guys can all take the heat!
At our last house we mostly had shade and I miss the plants that I could grow there.
There isn't any shade here on this lot except for the parts that creep around the house.
We got brave last year and planted an oak leaf hydrangea on the side of the house and so far it's happy.
If you've never planted one of these you need to try it.
They aren't nearly as picky as regular hydrangeas and they grow huge blooms all summer long.
That's all for me today.:)
What's growing at your house?
