Every year about this time, we plant flowers. We have some fairly large annual beds in the front and we also plant them around the outside of our patio. We have one of those patios that has the pavers elevated and then a hedge of dense yews around the outside of it, so we put the flowers in front of the hedge.
In the last few years we usually go with a mixed group of impatiens, but this year we went with impatiens in the back of the house and begonias in the front. One other minor detail..... everything is pink in honor of the expected arrival of Emma. Given our situation we thought it was an easy thing to do to celebrate her life.
