It's been a few years since we refreshed the mulch in our flower beds and boy, was it needed! We spent one recent Saturday morning putting down 75 bags of mulch. That's a lot of mulch! It was the perfect weather for it too...sunny and about 55 degrees.
Our grass never got completely brown and some flowers never even stopped blooming all winter long. A mild winter, for sure. Here are some pics showcasing the fruits of our labor...
I can't wait for my new azalea to bloom.
See that shamrock plant above? It's the same one from a couple of years ago. I never do anything to it, except water it (when I remember) and it's still going strong.
The Indian Hawthorne is getting ready to bloom...
I thought we could get by with about 45 bags of mulch, but once we got started, it was clear we would need almost double that amount.
Those little white dots are the first blooms on my Bridal Wreath bush next to the bridge.
My Pink Jasmine vine is loaded with buds.
Can you see all the buds getting ready to burst open?
The miniature bottle brush is starting to bloom too.
Y'all, this Lantana never stopped blooming all winter long! It's seriously looked like this since last summer...
We also planted a few spring flowers on the patio.
And more Petunias. We also planted some Impatients, but I didn't get a pic.
Y'all have a great day!
