I have owned my house for five years. It was always my dream to own my own home and with much struggling and saving I realized my dream. I feel very lucky and blessed because not many people realize their dreams.
For the first few years of home ownership I would run to the nursery and Home Depot to buy the prettiest annuals I could. I fell madly and deeply in love with their seductive colors. The best part was that I did not have to make a commitment to any one type of flower. I could change my mind each year and ha ve a whole “new” garden! On Mother’s Day I would be outside with my little tools and plant my way into a flower frenzy!!!! Impatiens, begonias, daisies….the list was endless. And I LOVED IT!!!!!!
Last summer something unexpected happened. I wasn’t looking forward to doing all that planting and spending all that money year after year. I made a decision that I would have to go the way of perennials. Plant once and enjoy year after year. It would be a one time investment and I could reap the glorious rewards from each spring through fall. And of course I could add a few annuals here and there!
Here are some photos of the Peruvian Daffodils I planted. I am not a big fan of regular daffodils, but these were so unusual looking that I had to give a try, and I am sooo happy I did! BTW…I bought these bulbs in Home Depot for under $5!!!!!
