Wordless Wednesday – Alice’s Garden

We recently bought our house from a lovely lady named Alice.  Alice is a talented gardener and has left us with a garden that give us a lot of pleasure as new flowers bloom every day.  But I don’t know how to take care of Alice’s garden and I feel honor bound to do justice to her lovely creation.  If any of you out there can help me by telling me what these plants are so I can learn how to tend to them, you would be doing a great service to me and to Alice.

    I’m not sure if you’ve moved into the botanic gardens or you’re just that great a photographer. I do not know anything about plants but I sure am envious. Good luck!

    I was going to say day lily for #3 too. Other than that I only recognized the daffodil, because for one thing I have the black thumb of death, and as for the other thing, I live in the high desert where it’s still winter. Even when it’s not winter, we grow entirely different things. I have some really nice sagebrush.

    Absolutely fabulous. You definitely have a green thumb, and know your way around plants. I had a Jade Plant that I loved. It grew to be huge, but then one year it got a smell, a very bad smell, and I noticed this one limb was dehydrating, and shriveling up. The roots were rotten, and it just fell off & the stench was awful. Even though it was still growing little baby leaves it was still dying. I was so sad. My husband went and bought me another one. I hope this one lasts as long. It was 10 yrs. that I had it.
