Summertime Backyards

Don’t you just love how green everything gets during certain times of the year, and how the flowers are so pretty. Container flower gardens and easy-to-grow flowering perennial plants are my kind of gardening, like Cannas and other types of lilies.  They’re so easy to grow.
I have a friend who definitely has a green thumb, and her backyard is gorgeous and looks like a park. For those people who have the time and energy, I think that’s great! What a nice place to relax and unwind. For me, my simple garden is nice to look at through the windows.

Notice the orange lilies in the background?  The original start of those came from my grandmother’s flower bed on the farm literally decades ago.  Different members of the family got a start of them when my grandparents sold the farm.  My mother planted hers in our backyard, and now that I’m grown and have a family, I have a start of them in my yard.

Are there any flowers in flower beds of parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, or best friends that you really admire?  Ask if you can have a start of them if they are the type that bloom year after year.  Lilies and cannas transplant well and can be enjoyed for years to come.
