I have always loved gardening, especially flowers. As long as I can remember, I have had some sort of flower pot.
I am really excited for this new series…it will be full of some of my favorite flower inspiration. Part One, I will show you some of my favorite flowers from my garden over the years. Part Two will cover some of my favorite flowers from all the places I have visited and there also be a part three!
This is just for fun to show you some pretty flowers which always bring me inspiration and peace.
When I was about four or five, I remember my parents bought me some tulips to plant in their backyard garden. They were red and so beautiful! Digging in the dirt is also like a therapy to me, so it is one of my favorite hobbies.
This was a picture of my first rose bush in 2007. We lived in a little apartment in San Diego, CA and I turned my balcony into a flower garden. This bush grew to be so tall, it almost touched the top of the balcony!
You know how much I adore Hibiscus, well this is my very first one! I picked it out because it was pink and I saw them growing wild all over our neighborhood, so I decided to give it a try. I have been growing them ever since!
When we moved back to Teas in 2010, we still lived in an apartment, so I had to recreate another balcony garden, but with Texas plants (aka hardy in the summer and winter). I always had Pansies in the spring.
We moved to our first home in January 2014, and I took all my potted plants with me. Now we get to enjoy other plants. This is our Texas sage in the backyard which makes the most beautiful blooms from March – November.
Hibiscus is still one of my favorite plants. They don’t do well in the ground in Texas, so my current patio is still filled with all different colors of hibiscus! You can see more of my hibiscus tips and pictures in these posts ( Tips, Potting, and Growth).
I have many more blooms around the yard, but these highlight some of my favorite ones since we got married in 2007. I am a big advocate and believer that anyone can enjoy a beautiful flower garden regardless of where you live! For seven years, we lived in apartments, but balcony flower gardens can be just as beautiful 🙂 I hope this can inspire you with your flower garden or to start one!
One of my favorite things to do is post really easy tips on gardening that anyone can follow, so make sure to follow along for those tips 🙂 Come back soon for part two of this series also!
Every women needs flowers around her for inspiration!
