Good morning! Happy Friday! I don’t know if you know this or not, but I love flowers! When we first got married (22 years ago TODAY!) I didn’t have such a green thumb. ha! I always planted pansies in the spring in Texas. Then I would wonder why they died so quickly. (Pansies don’t love heat, & they really should be planted in the fall not spring.) I’ve gotten just a little bit better over the years. It’s a mix of planting the right type of flowers & watering & feeding them enough, too. Recently we added these DIY Window Boxes to the back of our house. I just love them!

I love opening my windows & seeing nothing but flowers! 😉

These flowers are called Vincas. They are one of my go-to flowers that I plant every spring. They are great to grow this time of year, too, because they are drought & heat tolerant. It’s HOT out there. I always plant several of these around the yard in containers & in flower beds. They do well in both. I even had them seed out before, & they started growing everywhere under my deck. That was kind of neat! 😉
