A couple of weekends ago I decided that I needed some ambiance on my back porch… so Justin and I set forth to the store in search of the perfect porch company.
Now something you may not know about me is that I am sadly a PLANT KILLER!! (dun dun dunnnnnn) So I was REALLY worried about which ones to get.
I only wanted leafy plants (cause I figured I could handle that) but the selection on the pretty leaves was slim and I only found one that I loved so I was FORCED to buy some flowers! (of course I made sure they were not going to be pink or purple—I may have told the Wal-Mart worker that I would return them if they came up in either of the two.)
Here are my choices…
- Ranunculus- These are my all time FAVORITE flower (with a close second being Peonies) these were an addition when Joann and Tommy came into town. I was SO excited!
- Caladiums- This was my first pick… I LOVE the pretty leaves!
- Calla Lilies- This guy was all by himself and I thought I might get a discount on him… but no he was just misplaced!
- Bearded Iris- This was the most of the uncertainty…I have seen these in every color and I was buying a yellow one BY DARN MINE BETTER BLOOM YELLOW!
DISCLAIMER: These are not the pictures from my actual plants…I will update you once I have fully bloomed plants…Here’s hoping I develop a green thumb
