We have a flower bed off our front porch that has been a challenge to fill with flowers that will thrive. It’s a mostly shady area because of our large Golden Rain Tree whose branches provide that shade in abundance. However, through some pruning of the branches over the years, and some further pruning of a huge bush beside the flower bed, there is now a little more light that comes into that area. I’ve tried a large variety of plants and flowers over the years in that spot, but even now with a little more sun, finding a plant that will keep growing has been difficult.
This year I decided to plant several flowers in that bed, flowers that are designed to bloom in shade or partial shade. I’m still not tremendously pleased with how they have done this year. I’m just not seeing the huge display of blooms…
I'm Patty and I write about our adult son who has Epilepsy and Autism, who still lives with my husband and me, and who is a package full of many surprises and joys and challenges and TALK! Lots of talking, which creates laughter and some other reactions as well. I also write about how God shows Himself to me in everyday life.
