Things have been very gray around here. The average temperature for the past couple days has been around 45 degrees Fahrenheit or 7 degrees Celsius. Most of the plants we have bought are living inside until it gets consistently warmer at night. It actually looks kind of funny—it looks like a garden nursery in our laundry room!
My friends, Spaulding and Teddy, posted some pictures of the progress in their garden. Since the progress in my garden is either biding time in the laundry room or outside in the dark and gray, I thought I would post some pictures of the flowers that we had out on the porch.
This is a peppermint striped geranium. It has been changing colors as different flowers blossom in each cluster.
Mom’s favorite flower is a tulip, and her favorite color is purple, so she likes these flowers especially. When they opened, they revealed a lighter purple inside. It was very pretty.
I hope you liked the photos! I hope that the weather will change here in Wisconsin soon so we can share some gardening photos!
