Sunny Border May 2, 2012

 I squeezed in several blue Salvia plants that were in the back yard and kept reaching for the sun. We've got alot of sun out here ladies, good luck!
 I pinched them off hard in hopes they will fill out and be lush and cool looking come this Summer.
 The white mandevilla are growing like gang busters. I can already see some flower buds forming. They should be beautiful.
 The Shasta Daisies are just about to pop. May is going to be their month. the close up below shows it, they are ready.

 I still love the pink Knock Out rsoes. they don't seem to do as well as the yellows or reds, but i still love them the most.
Finally, my first Peony bloom. I cannot wait.

  1. I am about to jettison my pink knockouts for just that reason...they just seem, sickly. Right beside the reds that are gangbusters all year long. I see others who have great ones... I think maybe there are some bad batches or if they were mistreated they just don't recover well ? One has the rest of the year to do something, the other is gone as soon as I get around to it!
