I told you awhile back that we lost one of our three Rio Samba rose bushes. We went to the local nursery to get a replacement to find that of the 15 plants they had gotten in, none was left. We walked around the variety they had, both deciding we liked this one. It’s called, “Sedona.”
It started its first bloom today, the buds opening quickly this morning. It’s a nice contrast to the yellow and coral Rio Samba and we hope it’s happy with us.
Yesterday I told you I spent the afternoon and early evening planting new plants, mostly on the deck.
We have two of these pretty burgundy wave petunias.
We have these impatiens planted on both sides of the front door.
These are electric orange wave petunias. I planted two of these in the planter to the left of the front porch.
I brought these blue iris in yesterday, since we’re supposed to have lots of rain and possibly severe weather today, tomorrow, and into Saturday.
This is the new ground cover I planted in the trio of brick planters between the driveway and the front yard.
A pretty purple wave petunia. We have two of these on the deck.
This rose is called “Sedona.” We liked the color of the roses a lot, and thought it would be a nice addition to the Rio Samba rose bushes.
We have two white wave petunia plants on the deck. We’re hoping all of these will spill over the sides of the planters.
And, finally, this is the official hummer welcome area. We have two feeders out right now, plus the bird bath. My friend, Carla, told me the hummers are due around the 12th. I’m hoping for sooner…
