Cone flowers are supposed to be the perennial that always comes back. But I haven’t had that kind of luck. It could be because I have mine planted in containers and the winter cold gets them.
I typically buy one container of cone flowers each year just so I’ll have them, because I really do love this plant.
I don’t know if you can tell, but my white petunias aren’t all white. They have started blooming lavender and white petunias. Can you see the light lavender on some of the petals? Weird. Pretty. But weird.
And what can I say. I adore daisies. Always have. Ever since I was a little girl my favorite flower has been a daisy. I look for various colors every year to spruce up my spring/summer garden.
They’re such a cheerful flower. Very welcoming. If I was trying to think of a flower that could welcome you right at the garden gate, I’d pick daisies.
I’m really tired. I finished up the kitchen. So tomorrow morning I will post the apartment kitchen reveal. I already have the post written and ready to go. In case I’m still just as tired.
Surely I will feel revived by then. I always tend to work till I drop, then pay for it later. But the kitchen is the heart of the home, so it was worth it.
