Watch them Grow

If you would like to see more flowers or join in the fun click Here!
Remember Victoria from my Mom's blog!
Here she is way back when Mom first gave her to me after she had already bloomed.
Here she is today.
Don't ask me why all of this is underlined.
I don't have it marked. LOL

My Mom gave me all of these little plants on the first of the month.
We were going out to eat so I put them in water and planted them the next day.
This is when I first planted this in my barrel.
I think she called this bleeding hearts.
Here it is a month later. Looking good, huh?
Mom told me that the touch me nots spread and I think I see one in this barrel!
I planted this in a barrel too. I don't know what she called this but she said that it gets little red star flowers on it and climbs everywhere.
Look how it has grown now.
These are Touch Me Nots. She had these seed from her Mother, my Grandma.
Here the Touch Me Nots are today.
They are so tall and full of blooms.
These are our new little visitors. They are babies. The Mom jumped away before I could get her picture. She was double their size.
Mom also gave me Dahlia bulbs and I ran late planting them.
They grew pretty fast.
But look at them now. I can't wait until they bloom.
I didn't exactly plant these. The seeds fell out of my bird feeder and I told "Sweet Hubby" just to let them grow.
They are so pretty. I love sunflowers.

U have such a green thumb! I am just proud of myself for keeping my hanging plants on the front porch alive. Were those skunks! You are brave!

How sweet of your mom to give you these. The lacy looking plant in the barrel is red cypress vine, it has many common names, will grow quite long and the hummingbirds love it! It also is a reseeder.
