This bed is the one that stands out the most for those driving by. Tidal Wave Petunias really mound up and they will be all that I use in the future. The wave petunia are too flat and hard to notice in this big yard. When I look at this bed it looks small. In reality it is at least 15-feet long and 4-feet wide.
Another mish-mash bed. I really wish some thought would have gone into things. The closer end has dwarf asters and the far end is “red, white and blue” wave petunias. (I need a drive-by weed whacking by a crazy neighbor because that looks bad!).
The rains have beat most of the flowers off. It looked much fuller a week ago.
Nasturtiums are a feel good flower. I need to remember to plant more of those next summer.
This lilac has reached about six feet now and had it’s first flowers this summer at 4 years old.
Another wild bed! Pansies and marigolds.
This must be the “frilly” ones? I love the orange and purple.
See how saturated the petals are. The flowers weren’t exactly in their best form with all the rain, but I’ve put off taking photos for so long if I wait much longer they’ll be frozen!
Looks goofy with both tidal and wave petunias in one bed.
The viola, none of which I planted, took over this bed and most of the others. My niece and I pulled the chickweed. Prior to that you couldn’t even see there were any flowers! Next year all surprises will be treated like weeds!
