Prince brought this pretty hanging basket home for Mother's Day. I put them on the right side of the porch.
Another basket for Mother's Day. I have moved them around until I figured at the right of the steps going down to the bottom porch would work.

This little guy was spying on me as I took pictures. I tried one of these blocks before the Grosbeaks came and they loved it. Seems like all the birds like them. Do you recognize this little fellow.


On Monday Prince brought this and the following flowers home for no reason other than to surprise Mimi and I.



I planted both of these out front behind the boxwood's on the left side of the windows. We can enjoy them when we go to the kitchen and the box woods will give them shade.




The red on this geranium is a different red almost a orange. Prince knows how I love geranium. Beside it is a little pot of basil. If I had to have only one herb I must admit it would be basil.





The picture does not show the correct salmon pink color and I can honestly say I have not seen this color before. I sat it near the kitchen door so when I sit at the table I can gaze upon it. Actually all but the white petunias and calidums can be seen from the table. I did this on purpose for all to enjoy.
Have you ever noticed how everyone gathers in the kitchen?
The Kitty Justice is I am like Robert Frost today, "Miles to go before I sleep."

Lady Di,

I also love geraniums. I usually plant a big planter full for the front porch. Our weather hasn't been agreeing with my urge to garden. Monday night there was a frost warning out, so we are waiting for some warm weather.

I bought a scarveola hanging basket yesterday. They are a fairly new breed of flower here and I try to get one every year. I will post photos of it on Sunday if it doesn't rain so much that I can't get any.

Enjoy your day. I enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful blooms.

Blessings,
Mary

Thanks. I sure do enjoy the fruit of my labor as I have my first cup of coffee each day.
This weekend I hope to stop and instead of smelling the roses, read all my favorite blogs. I am rather behind on my reading. I do not know about everyone else but I have withdrawals when I do not get to read and blog. Ah ha, I am a bloggin addict.
Have a wonderful weekend and Peace be with you. Looking forward to your pictures.
