Wanted to Share

There is an store in Carrollton called the Vintage House and it is pink and white. Been there for 24 years.
I asked who did there flowerbeds? They said they have tried but have issues. So I offered to fill the window box with hearty flowers.Maybe geraniums? What else is hardy and likes sun? They also have a rose bush that needs some TLC and I am going to trim it down and fertilize the poor soil around it. Keeping with the theme of pink and white and plants that are drought tolerant.
I am going to put a variegated butterfly bush that is pink and purple next to a corner that looks sad. Busy street and the landscaping is ugly. I am so excited and will take before and after photos and share.

You go!

Zinnia, and other annuals will help fill in, and most have the colors you want.
