The Front Garden

The front garden is my most colorful garden here, but right now things are just busy growing...not much blooming yet. But there are fresh pansies in the tufa pots near the front steps and geraniums in the pots on the front porch. (There is another one of Samson's sculptures too...)

SMILE!
I planted a lot of violas around the base of the big old pine tree in the front. I hope they re-seed and come back . My Gram used to call these Johhny Jump-ups

This one is called Starry Night

And this one reminds me of the kind my Grandmother kept in her gardens many years ago. I'll take more pictures of this garden as things start to bloom...Next garden up is the Shade garden...

I *love* pansies! They are a natural smile maker for me...I haven't been able to find johnny-jump-ups around here this year. I remember those growing up, cute little things. Your front garden looks pretty!
