Bloomin' Tuesday

Happy Bloomin' Tuesday

Banana Trees

This is my daughter's (Sheila's) banana tree(s). This is the third year that she's had it and there are actually tiny bunches of bananas on it. Sheila lives right across from me and the banana trees are real conversation pieces in our neighborhood and in our small town.


My marigolds are getting prettier each day.

Pampas GrassThis is my neighbor's pampas grass. I planted four plants and they died. I don't know where my mind was but I sprayed grass and weeder killer near the area where the pampas grass was planted - I guess that I forgot that it was grass. I'll try again next year.

Impatience AgainI post impatience often because I have so many pots of them. I think that impatience are not only beautiful but also low maintenance plants.

The Flag

I've been so busy packing and preparing for our brief trip that I didn't change flags this week. This is my neighbor, Jean's, flag. I think that it speaks of summer.

Have a wonderful Bloomin' Tuesday!

Hi Sweetie, somehow I missed visiting you on Blooming Tuesday!
My Mom use to have a Banana Tree in their yard, they use to make me cut on the shoots coming up in the grass and I swore I would never get one! LOL
Your impatiences are pretty and so are your marigolds. They look so heathly. Have a great trip!
Love, Ann
