Several of my children bought me gift a certificate to Lukas Nursery for Mother’s Day.
I decided to plant a sunshiney yellow garden, so I loaded my cart with these plants. I was originally going to buy a lemon fizz rose bush (in the center) but I realized at the checkout that I had left my gift certificates at home. I stopped at Walmart on the way home and found rose bushes on sale half price, so I bought two of them instead. When I returned to Lukas, I put back the lemon fizz and got another canna lily and some rose food / pesticide.
The blooms of these ten Dahlberg daisy plants are quite small but lovely.
I would have planted more here to fill in the space, but I wanted to give the roses and canna lilies room to spread out.
Later, I found this cosmos basket at Lowes on clearance when I went to find a bag of tree and shrub soil. I placed them across the walkway from the rest of the yellow garden.
Also across the walkway, I added in four portulaca (moss rose) plants from Lowes, also on clearance. I planted two more in the pots that sit on top of my garden wall.
In another garden section, up closer to the front door, red-orange zinnias bring an extra pop of color.
I still need to work on everything a little more, but here’s the big view of what I’ve got so far!
