Nadia’s Garden 2016

Foxglove flowers clusterMy daughter enjoys gardening as much as I do, my sister and my mom.

Her 8-year-old daughter also shows interest in nature and plants…a future gardener in training…:-)

I am so proud of them!

This year she changed her landscaping, by adding a stone landscaping wall, replacing all her shrubs, and rearranging her perennials.

Right now everything is quite small and new, but next year it will be a real showcase.

Today I will share some pictures I took of her landscaping and plants.

Magienta Petunia Flower

These delicate-looking Petunias are actually very tough.  They seeded themselves from last year’s plants, survived our unpredictable spring weather, and still very tiny, but showcasing full-size gorgeous flowers.

Ever so vibrant cream-yellow Daylilies, Stargazer Lilies which will bloom in July, and Fire Red Bee Balm is getting ready to bloom.

Reviewing all these pictures, you will agree that my daughter did a super job with her brand new landscaping.  I can’t wait to see it all in full bloom throughout the summer and fall.
