I think geraniums in planters look so classy! I have many pots that would look fantastic with these!
I think I will plant some gardenia bushes by the back door, so that our guest will enjoy their fragrance when they come into our home.
I don't think your a true southerner unless you have some azalea bushes and a couple of crete myrtles. I love how the azaleas bloom in the spring and the summer.

Zinnias are my absolute favorite flower! I love them and plan on planting some tall ones in front of our storage building as well as in our planters and wherever else I think they need to go. Such hardy plants! I will probably have some planted in our vegetable garden for a good oldfashion look!
We have a lot of daylilies lining in front of our fences. I love daylilies and hope to add to my collections!

I have hostas planted in the front flower beds as well as around a tree in the back yard. Such a pretty accent

I have a lot of irises in our yard! I have grown to appreciate them!
I love peonies! They remind me of my grandmother Hale. Every time she moved, she would take her beloved peonies with her. I even had them in my bridal bouquet! They are so pretty and elegant! I have four planted and hope they come back this year!
I want to add some lavendar bushes around our patio! I think they will look so pretty with our yellow lantana as well as smell so fresh!
New Guinea Impatiens
I plan to plant more orange colored impatients in our front flower planter! They looked so pretty until about Decemeber last year, when they finally died. They start out so dainty, but grow up so big and beautiful!
I also plan to add a few ferns! I have never had much luck with them, so we will see!
Eventually, we will finish landscaping the front of our house. I see some lorepetalum, indian hawthornes, and nandinas in our future for this!
Hope this inspired you as much as it did me! I am so ready to dig in the dirt and plant some beautiful flowers! Enjoy your day!
