If you shop at nurseries each month and buy some of what is blooming, you will have a garden for all seasons.

Very good idea, and a great reason to go to the nursery! Like we need another reason right? Whistling

Great idea Jeri. It's always so hard to go into a nursery or garden center and not want everything in sight! Smiling

I agree ... photo definitely looks to be a Bougainvillea. I have one in a container that hasn't done much of anything the past two years .... hope to get it in the ground before long. A good friend of mine has two planted beneath her live oak trees and those things are gorgeous, climbing and twining up the oaks ... and in full bloom most of the year!

I'm not sure I want more excuses. I think my plant budget is exhausted for the year. Doesn't mean I won't.... Whistling

A budget is something where you make a plan to curb your spending while under the influence of blissful DENIAL! Shrug!

LOL!! Yall are too funny. You need to make a nursery run with us at Forest Hill. That will take care of a few year's budgets!!!
