Rebirth

Last year I planted some Gerbera daisies in the pots in front of our house. Around them I planted some dark pink flowers (whose name has completely escaped me now). They had both been advertised as annuals but I just couldn’t bring myself to pull them when the foliage disappeared in December (yep, took a while). I cut back the dead growth but left them there. This spring I noticed some green in the pots and was delighted to see that my hope had paid off. (:

Isn’t this lovely?

Despite a severe pruning, the mock orange blossoms are back too. (: Pity they have no scent.

 

Storms tonight! I didn’t bother to water anything this afternoon.
