Flowers & Trees At Our Place

I planted double petal Impatiens in the mosaic pot I made. Can you see the snow in the mountains in the back ground?? The Rocky Mountains go up into Canada from here.
The second hanging planter here is full of baby lettuce plants. They've already grown 2 inches!
These plants on the deck are my most recent "gardening" projects. One hanging planter I didn't show because it just contains seeds. Sugar Maple Tree seeds! My blog-buddy, Daisy,in Ohio sent them to me while I was still in Phoenix. She also sent some packets of flower seeds which I planted in my little garden patch. Will let you know if they come up.

This is a Sweetheart Cherry tree that Patrick planted for me. It's still in a bit of shock I think.

This Rhododendron bush is 1 of 3 that one of our neighbors was going to throw away last year! We couldn't believe that they would just dig them up and throw them out and asked if we could resurrect them. (By we, I mean Patrick...he did all the digging and heavy lifting. Thanks baby!) We also got 2 Azalea bushes that haven't bloomed yet. They look pretty scrawny, but the flowers are pretty. If any of you garden aficionados out there have any suggestions for plumping up the leaves on these bushes, please feel free to comment.

This little guy is one of 4 Blue Spruce that we planted last October. They all made it through the rough Northern Idaho winter. Yippee!

I hope you all are having a lovely weekend. A special shout out to blog-buddy, John in Wales on his 47th Birthday!! If you get a chance, hop on over to his blog and wish him happy returns of the day. Approaching 50 can be traumatic to some!!

May the Lord of Heaven and Earth rain His blessings on all who read this.

love, Cassie

Hi Cassie! Looks like you've been pretty busy with all your planting projects. I love the impatiens in the mosaic pot that you made. I hope everything grows well for you. I have always wanted to have cherry trees. Maybe I will have to try and find a spot where I can plant a couple in our yard. Happy Sunday to you, my dear! Wishing you lots of blooms and blessings. :D

Your flowers are just gorgeous! Bless you for saving the rhododendron and the azalea! Mom has horrible luck with azaleas! She just can't keep them alive!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Your flowers are beautiful - and I absolutely adore the mosaic pot - I need to make some. I have pots and I have tiles - I don't know what is stopping me. Did you just use regular grout on them?

I think azaleas need a climate that is warmer and more humid than yours - when we lived in SC the ones in our yard flourished, but since I am terrible allergic to them, I haven't tried to plant any here in VA.

Thanks for sharing.

Your pot looks fabulous on your deck!
So much easier to grow green up there than in AZ?!! ha. You sure do have a green thumb.
