Yesterday was a cool, pretty day, perfect for working in the yard. I got outside to weed and trim the flower beds. Our neighborhood association pays for mowing but your flower beds are your own responsiblity. After getting everything trimmed, I decided I would go to Lowe's for my flowers. I do not have a green thumb but there are a few flowering plants that I cannot kill. Impatiens are the star in my flower beds each year. Last year I went with solid pink so this year I wanted to change things up. How about a red, white and blue color theme for 2014? I found some pretty lobelia for the blue. Hoping I can keep it alive!! I also picked up some hostas. They are a pretty hardy plant impervious to my gardening skills.
