Nothing man makes can compare to what Mother Nature produces.

I wouldn't necessarily put these colors in combination with one another but when nature does it is stunning.  This is a Mother's Day hanging basket from my son Ryan.
This is a hanging basket of purple bucopa.  The camera lens cannot do it justice, the flowers are so pretty and dainty.
This is a double petunia I planted in a hanging basket, I can't wait for it to fill out.  
For the second year now my Iris's have done an outstanding job of blooming and showing off.  Again, I wish the camera could capture the beautiful colors.
Impatiens are always a favorite of mine.  These sweet plants bloom all summer.
Geraniums, white lobelia and sweet potato vine make great container friends.
I have posted about this hardy geranium before (it is a perennial).  This is one that puts on quite the show each year.  I have divided it several times, re-planted it in other beds and even given starts away.  The bees are in love with it.
Here is a bee enjoying one of the blossoms.
It seems like the older I get the more I love to plant flowers and watch the wonders of what Mother Nature puts forth.  We are so blessed by the beauty all around us.
