What's Blooming At My House

All my flowers are in full bloom. The blue ageratums in this picture I started from seed. They are just getting going. This is the side of my house.

I had a old wood feed trough full of flowers. Last week the bottom fell out and all the flowers were on the ground. So I found this box and filled it with dirt and saved all the flowers. I also planted some of them right in the ground and they are doing good.

Every year I grow dahlias and dig them back up in the fall. I ended up with alot of white dahlias. They would be great for a wedding.

The hibiscus are really pretty this year. We've gotten alot of rain which has really helped. We usually are lacking rain this time of year.
The humidity is supposed to be out of here tommorrow. I'm really looking forward to that. This weekend it is supposed to be beautiful, can't wait.
Have a great evening!


  1. Julie ~
    Your flowers are magnificent!!! Will you come be my landscaper???
    My hibuscus have done horribly the last 2 years. We haven't gotten much rain but I do water on a regular basis. Oh, am I going to hate to see my water bill.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
    Pug hugs :)

  2. So beautiful, Julie! I love your house! I tried growing dahlias this year, and they didn't do so well, but my petunias are great! You have all of your flowers so nicely arranged. It's beautiful as always!


  3. Your house and flower beds are beautiful Julie!
    We are heading up your way later today......taking 2 of our grand kids on a little outing.

  4. Gorgeous gardens, Julie! The blue ageratums are a favorite of mine... they seem to glow at dusk!

  5. Your flowers are absolutely stunning! We have lots and lots of shade trees in our yard - which I love - but it sure makes it hard to get any color to enjoy! Thanks for all the pictures.

  6. wow, what a beautiful home and garden........!!!!!!!!!Linda
