Last weekend my sister and I went to White Forest Nursery and while she was getting some trees she had ordered I was picking out some flowers to plant in the front.
I got some purple and pink petunias that I put on the right side of the first driveway (we have a circular drive).I planted a mixture of zinnias on the other side.
On the left side of the entry way in the shady spot I planted a few impatiens.
Opposite the impatiens I planted marigolds.
Over on the other driveway I planted pale pink and dark pink petunias.
I had enough left over of those to plant between two of the rose bushes.
Underneath the olive tree I planted some sort of verbena.
I don't know why I got it really, since I didn't actually have a place in mind for it. As we were admiring the flowers in that area at the nursery a woman told us she had planted a few of them and thought they were highly invasive. She said they were starting to grow into her lawn. I thought that sounded like something I needed--something that was indestructible and needed little extra care.
I'm not usually too good with plants--my sister is the one with the green thumb. Oh well, if it survives then great, if not then oh well.
When I finished planting everything I decided to get the edger out and edge. I also did the back yard. (This is in the front by the olive tree).
