We are headed to Shreveport, La., I go there every spring to buy flowers. There are three or four nurseries I always visit. I found what I went after at Garrison's Nurseries, Mystic Blue Spires, Salvia. However they only had seven, these only planted one side of my bed.
I found these beautiful Iris in Charlotte's yard. Most of you readers are aware that Charlotte is my daughter. This Iris is really a pretty purple and white.
Charlotte and I both plant Iris in our flower beds along with our roses and other flower pants. My Mother, also a flower lover, planted everything together. Charlotte,s beds drain better than mine. She still has most of what she bought, a lot of mine died. Iris can not take a lot of water. I walked around Charlotte,s yard and took lots of pictures.
Charlotte Ann likes a lot of pots sitting around in her yard. They really look wonderful, however she has someone other than her husband, Don, taking care of her mowing. I can not inconvenience Carrel like this. I put mine in a flower bed or where grass does not grow, not suppose to anyway. However Mother Naqture and I do not agree on that.
Pansies, Tulips,and Gerber Daisies.
Charlotte is looking at the goats. I did not take a picture of the twin goats so I will have to steal one. This is a Snowball tree Charlotte and I bought one at the same time. My tree was was left behind in Jonesboro, La.
This is the bloom from the Snowball tree.
This is Charlotte's Cherry Tree. I can see why people travel a long ways to see the cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C.. Wish I was wealthy enough to make the trip. It would be worth it. I would have to go by myself Carrel is not big on traveling.
Cherry blooms, the tree was almost through blooming.
This is new for me to write about another garden besides mine, however I will be giving up dates when I go to Shreveport,La. I hope you have enjoyed this blog page about Charlotte,s garden and hope it will inspire you to grow one of your own. Charlotte does not have a Carrel to do the heavy work for her. She tillers and lifts the heavy dirt all by herself. I am well please with her. Happy gardening to you from Charlotte, Carrel and I, Juanita.
