Springtime is here...

 We recently bought some wonderful plants for springtime planting.  This begonia is so beautiful.

 And oh, I forget the name of this and the tag I believe has since blown away!  Isn't it fascinating?  Any name come to mind for it?

 This sweet fountain needs hooked up, but the price was right and it was love at first sight.  I wish I knew how to keep the birds from sitting on their heads, but I guess you just have to take the bad with the good.

 Another charming thing I found there.  It spins like crazy and I'm crazy about it.  =)

 This is also called a firecracker plant.  I'm 66 and have never seen one of these before.  It is a vine and I'm hoping it likes it here.

And who can resist the 'bleeding heart' perennial?  Flowers are so delightful.  How good God is to us,  many things on this earth are sheer beauty and are free for all to enjoy.  I'm thankful.

You picked some unusual (to me) plants. That will be fun to watch them grow. Keep us up to date on them as they do.
Love your girl and boy.

You really do have some beautiful plants. I don't know the names of flowers but I'm always looking them up to identify them. I hope you got my email and that you get a card from me today! Sweet hugs, Diane

I love bleeding hearts. I think the bottoms look like ballerina slippers.

I also love the Candy Corn, how amazing.
