Spring in a Jar

I planted twelve tiny Impatiens plants in my front yard yesterday.  I have a few little dark patches that don't get sun all year - perfect for these shade loving blooms.  The first time I saw our house, I immediately noticed a riot of hot pink and white Impatiens flanking each side of the walk up.  The previous owner obviously had a very green thumb.  I'm going to attempt an Impatiens reprise this year!  I'll take some photos when they grow a bit, but until then enjoy these beautiful spring arrangements:

Gorgeous way to enjoy spring flowers and not sneeze, thank you!

Impatiens are very rewarding and you should find them easy to grow. Add some compost to the soil where you plant them and if the deer don't eat them they should be just fine.

I had a pink and an orange tulip pop up in my flower bed a week ago. I've lived here three years and never seen it before. Was a nice surprise! Unfortunately our previous owners had the opposite of a green thumb!
