Bloomin' Tuesday: 05/19/09

For Mother's Day (from myself)

I ordered from ebay some fun plants.




I was surprised to see plant food,




And a happy face,





Great treat!





My new hibiscus were well wrapped, well watered, and super quick!


If you are interested in hostas, this lady has quite a selection.




Hubby and I went to Lowe's for flower plants for my mom. I found this cool plant on clearance.


(Mulla Mulla, or Pink Pussywillow: Joey Ptilotus exalatus, full sun, semi-moist, 12"x12")


Looks perfect in the new combo pot,


I'm hoping it will continue to bloom when dead headed, and reseed.



I also bought a pot of Aggie Maroon bluebonnets.


But, you can see they bloomed blue!





Thats ok, I just went back and bought one in bloom:)



I'll be saving seeds from these!


(the blue ones needed watering, thats why the leaves are curled up)


What a great hubby who knows for Mother's Day I want cash. Love him, I really do:)


Happy Bloomin' Tuesday! I'm joining MsGreen "thumb" Jean for Bloomin' Tuesday!



Come join in or see others!

Re: Bunny Tails, my first year with these, I bought a 4 inch pot and they have grown like crazy. Supposed to reseed themselves. I have been checking them for seeds. If I find any, will glady share.

Hi Carla,

Girl... This Thursday I am posting about nature. You and I are on the same track...

I am finally getting over to your place for Thankful Thursday…. Last week. Yikes, I am a bit behind. Thank you for honoring the Lord with your Thankful heart. I will see you again this Thursday. Hugs

PS. I forgot the computer tip last week but have a good one for this week.

Those are some cool looking plants. They are amazing finds. My saga palm has some yellow in it now. It want to go back to Texas where there is less water. lol.

I've had good luck with Ebay cactus purchases over the years, however, every once in a while they mislabel things, so people need to know what something is supposed to look like before ordering. I love the 'maroon' bluebonnets!
