Flowers & Greens In Outdoor Spaces

It's chilly & sunny this morning here in NE Oklahoma.
After I slipped on my favorite, warm sweatshirt I spent a few minutes outside taking pictures of the flowers we planted yesterday.

Every year when spring begins I have a hard time deciding which flowers to plant in our front flowerbed. 
The area is in full sun so flowers planted there must be hearty.

Hubby & I shopped several places looking for the best bargains.
So many choices!
Ace Hardware
Home Depot

We also stopped by Under the Sun & Lowe's.

We ended up buying our bedding plants at Home Depot because
of the great quality & prices.
miniature zinnias
red verbena
The front flowerbed also has several nandina bushes & a large holly bush.
I'm anxious to see how this bed looks in a few weeks.

green & red colors on nandina bushes
Large pots beside the front step came from
Ace Hardware.
geraniums & some unidentified green plants

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Great choices!

Your yard is going to be stunning... once those flowers mature, there will be folks slammin' on their brakes to take a look :)

Carol, your flowers are so beautiful, I am so far behind on my gardens because of all the paint projects we have going. I really like the American flag displayed, Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your week.
