AHHHH......SPRINGTIME IN ARIZONA....................................
OH My......are their some geraniums amongst that lobelia? It is springtime here....and everything is blooming like crazy. We don't have a very long spring so I always revel in all the flowers and greenery that just explode.
These flowers are from the side yard and are so very pretty I wanted to bring them inside.
I always pick flowers from my garden when I can as I love to have fresh flowers inside my home. It also saves a ton of money when you don't have to buy them at the store.
Unfortunately the geraniums will not be long lived here as they are really a winter flower in AZ. They can't stand the tremendous heat of our summers. The roses, on the other hand, will bloom during April and May....they actually like our AZ heat if they are planted in the right spot in your yard.
I've been fortunate to meet a Master Gardner at one of our local nurseries here. Sheri, works for Sunset Nurseries here in Phoenix and is always available for tips and advice on what to plant and when to plant it.
Hope you enjoyed this little taste of spring as I know many of you are still in cold, cold weather. Just trying to send some beauty out through the universe.
