Im so happy. For the last 2 mornings, Ive been getting up at 630am til 1030 am (til its too hot) and planting my lil heart out.

Mom and I went to the different plant places and she bought all the plants and flowers I picked out. We spent hours just looking and looking. I was in heaven.

Ill try to remember all the plants we got...Im sure Ill miss some.

To start off we picked out 4 roses. FREAK YAY!!! (does happy dance)
A beautiful Love rose. Its hot pink with a lil white at the center AND IT SMELLS LIKE HEAVEN.
A heirloom soft yellow rose (didnt have a name on it) and smells like rose heaven.
2 climbers
America climber and a Jacobs Coat.

We got 2 small Bougainvillea. A hot pink and orange and I planted them together. Ive never seen the orange one before and am thinking about trying to grow one from a cutting. Ill get back to you on that.

We got Surdiva Scaevola
4 beautiful coleus
Gardena (think I spelled that right)
3 Mex Petunias (well contained)
6 Moss roses
a Black Knight and Purple Emperor butterfly bush
Wondering Jew
and about 10 other plants I dont remember the names of.

WOW you've had a plant shopping bonanza haven't you? Oh I wish I'd been there too as I love buying plants. They'd probably have had to re-stock once I'd been there though!!! LOL

You must try to get some photographs for us 'cause if I can't buy then looking comes second best.
