Flower Power #2

I love lots of colors in the yard.  This Portulaca is hanging near my front door.  The flowers only open during the day and and stand up towards the sun.  They close up at night and droop down.


This hibiscus bush has pretty purple flowers.  I put it in two years ago and it is starting to get a little out of hand.  I probably need to trim it this coming fall.

Flower Power


My wife received this White Amaryllis as a gift from Belks two years ago for buying her favorite perfume.  Well actually, I bought her the perfume for Christmas and got this flower as a gift.  It did well the first year, but didn’t bloom last year.  I guess the third year is the charm.  It probably helped that I actually gave it some fertilizer this year.
