A trip to the greenhouse

I just couldn't wait any longer so I took a trip to my
local greenhouse on Monday and also stopped in at
one yesterday while I was on the road.
I purchased some gorgeous flowers and I hope the
sun comes out to stay soon so I can get these
planted in my pots!

You can't really see the hip hop plants in the back
very well, but they are gorgeous. They have a very
delicate white flower. I was told they are very easy to
grow and spread fast so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
The allysum in front is called Snow Princess and it is
supposed to fill in and drape down the sides of baskets.

Had to replenish my violas and pansies as they have
just about died out over the past few years.

Lovely ivy geranium hanging basket. Usually I get a soft pink, but they are getting harder to find around here and I have yet to find a nice one.

More ivy geraniums (Temprano pink and Contessa White), asparagus fern and ivy plants.

I just came in the back door and plopped them down and later took pictures right where they were at. Now to get started playing in the dirt... can't wait!

Happy Thursday everyone! Blessings~
