Our Freebie Flowers

Hi everyone!

This little guy has been hanging out on our dill.

I have mentioned before that we have filled our flower bed with free perennials. All of these flowers were either bartered or traded with other folks at plant swaps.

Outdoor2011spring 006Outdoor2011spring 007I love the fact that I have not bought a flower plant in 2 years! This flower bed is just full and bursting with different flowers and colors!   

Thanks for visiting with me and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Your flower beds look great and I think trading and free is wonderful. Love the Bee Balm blooms.

  2. I love all the colors and that they flower at different times.
    Can not beat the price and you know you made others just as happy with your trades.

  8. Diann,
    Your flowers look so lush and vibrant. The terrific heat here has taken a toll on some of my perennials. We did have thunderstorms yesterday where we got 2-3 inches of rain in one day!! That did help a bit....


  9. I used to be a member of a plant group and I loved the plant swaps. It was one of my favorite things. Seems like those plants always live too because they're suited to the soil in your area!

  10. Your flower bed is beautiful and lots of wonderful colors.
    Mine did not fair so well with some of the high wind storms we had.
