pretty

Gardening makes me happy. The bad thing is that because I live in a condo, my gardening space is fairly limited.  But that doesn't stop me from adding some color. It's all about the pretty flowers.

And because the weather was so beautiful out I finished planting the flowers on my balcony today.





Every year I stick with the petunias and vinca vines. This year I threw a spike in there for some height.



Eventually they will get split up. I'll probably put the white container on the little table I have. I LOVE the little blue flowers. I have no idea what they are but I had to have them. Same with the red gerber daisies. I'm the worst. I just get distracted by the pretty and buy them with no real plan. 



This might be my favorite. Pink gerber daisies and little blue flowers. (We'll see how long it lasts before I find a way to kill it.)

I also made yet another run to the nursery for flowers for the condo building. I did the planters today before I ran out of potting soil yet again. I'll have to make yet another trip to the nursery tomorrow so I can finish planting this stuff before it all dies.

I love long relaxing holiday weekends.

AWESOME flowers! I wish it would stop raining so I can go plant things in my garden.

(I spent much money at the nursery yesterday. All my criteria for buying was "ooooooohpretty!"

I too am acquainted with the ""ooooooohpretty!" technique. (It's how I ended up with an odd mix this year.)

I have been to 1 nursery 4x and the other 2x in the past 8 days between doing my balcony and the building's flowers. I forgot stuff, ran out of stuff and went looking for more stuff. I'm hoping I don't have to go back for a while.
