“for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.”
Song of Solomon 2:11-12
Spring is around the corner, and you know what that means…FLOWERS! You may remember last year when we took you along with us as a landscaper established a garden space for us…it was a complete overhaul of our backyard! But just in case you weren’t a follower of the blog then, let me take you back. We started with ideas here and here, then progress of the landscaping job, and finally the big reveal! Of course we kept you updated as seasons changed too!
The job was completed around mid-June, and by this time annuals and perennials weren’t readily available! I am wanting to be prepared this year so I get the best selection! We planted limelight and vanilla strawberry hydrangeas that tolerate full sun and did great during our heat wave of last summer!
I have included some of my favorites that will survive our southern climate and will be great for cutting and bringing indoors!

The pairing of purple irises and hydrangeas makes me think of my maternal grandmother who could grow anything! Her irises were amazing!
Foxgloves add drama and vibrant color!
A peony is one of the most beautiful blooms and heavenly scents!
We love our outdoor space and spend a lot of time out there during the warmer months! We will keep you updated with progress and would love to know what your favorite flowers to plant are!
