Sweet Pea
These tiny flowers are native to Silicy in Italy and form fragile; seductive little flowers with an alluring fragrance. They make great bouquets and grow in a wide range of colors suitable for a garden border, fence, or arch.

French Tulips
Tulips bloom in the spring and grow from bulbs that form beautiful flowers in a wide variety of colors except for blue. These are one of the first flowers marking that spring has official arrived – what a way to greet the season! They thrive in long, cool springs and dry summers. Plant them in the late summer, or autumn for best results.

These pink flowers are outrageously beautiful when in bloom and will stay as lush flowers all summer long. Plant them once, and they will bloom every summer – some are known to thrive for well over 100 years. To give your back a break, they require little maintenance and make the perfect borders for lining your walkway, driveway, or garden.

Spray Roses
They aren’t like your regular roses, these miniature roses are typically smaller and produce lush, rich flowers. Unlike larger roses, these flowers produce more blooms and can be easily transplanted and used for decorations in pots or for bouquets. You can also plant these if you are looking for a rich cluster of flowers to cover a large area with minimal planting required – these roses bloom like crazy and are a great wonder to have in the garden.

If you’ve never heard of Ranunculus, it’s time you plant them in your flowerbed. They have incredible colors, straight long stems, and are great for bouquets since they have a long vase life and long-lasting blooms. The leaves look like lace and are perfect to incorporate in your garden landscape design as borders 

It's so embarrassing when you come inside from going potty
a cherry blossom is stuck to your nose.


  1. Oh all those flowers look so pretty. I do love peonies, I have been wanting to plant some and I know a few fence sticks in the plant will help hold them up during heavy rain and winds. What a cute shot of Piper and the cherry blossom. :) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. I love flowers, peonies are a favorite, so are roses, larkspur, coneflower, daisies, black eye susans. The list goes on and on!

  3. Love ALL those flowers. I love peonies--they remind of of overdressed blousy ladies dressed for church...lol I can't wait to see our tulips come up....I am so anxious for Spring this year. xo Diana

  4. I love all flowers but have fond memories of peonies. My grandparents had peonies in their yard: white, pink and dark red. The smell was heavenly in the spring. My grandmother grew them for Memorial Day bouquets. She hated plastic flowers. I've always wondered what she'd think of the silk flowers so prevalent now.

  5. oh my little piper rose. I love you. ♥[

  6. Beautiful flowering pots and gardens. It will be interesting to see what has survived once spring has arrived. I believe that I will have a chance to do some filling in.

  7. Such beauty in every photo, Betsy. And the last one is hilarious. I hope he doesn't mind my laughter. ♥

  8. I'm DYING to get into my garden to plant!!!!!Have had 2grandaughters here for over a week...they're going home tonite. Whew! While their mom and dad will have a nice Mexican tan...I will sleep for days before I can plant ! EXHAUSTED! God knew what he was doing when he made children for young people!!
    I've missed so many of your posts. Will catch up tonite. Love every flower u mentioned above. Crazy Piper!

  9. AAWWWW! Sweet Piper! How cute! I love Ranunculus! One of my favorites along with Peonies and Hydrangeas! Love!!!
