When we moved in our house we had a maximum of 4 Lilly plants. After dividing and planting,dividing and planting, they’re all over the yard.
Another plant we didn’t have many of were Sedums. Now I’ve accumulated at least 4 different varieties and after drowning them with water one summer, I realized that they don’t need watering often. I have some on the side of the house that I have actually forgotten about and they do well without me touching them.
Last weekend we were out back when I noticed bees hovering around a Purple Cone Flower. It didn’t stay there long, but instead it found much interest in the Bee Balm plant. Don’t the bees look adorable? When I showed the pic to my daughter, she didn’t think so, but we’re also talking about somebody that’s scared of butterflies. After seeing how much the bees liked the Bee Balm, I looked it up in one of my garden books to learn a little more about them. The leaves of the Bee Balm are used for tea, salad and potpourri.
There are two flower pots outside my front door. This one I used something from in my house that had been broken by my daughter. You see that green thingy? I still can’t remember what it’s called, that’s why I’m calling it a green thingy. LOL Any-who, instead of throwing it away I decided to use it in the flower pot and I love it there. After my daughter dropped it, it had broken at the bottom. So, instead of throwing it away I decided to use it and it worked.0
