Let's take a peek at what is blooming in the garden, shall we?


Peppermint Lily


Stargazer Lily


Daylily


Gladiolas

What perrenials multiply easily to help fill in the front flower beds?

Pretty blooms. I don't know what perennials would do great for you where you are. You'd have to do a google search for your area.

So beautiful. The lillies always seem like they are not even real they are so perfect. I am so excited for you. Aren't you down to just days now? I can't wait to see the pics of your reunion. I will cry I am sure.

Very pretty lilies! I used to have lilies but they all died. I just don't have a green thumb when it come to lilies.

Tracy, I am stopping by from Elaine's at Sunny Simple Life. Such pretty flowers to enhance your yard. Love the lilies. I hope you get some good suggestions about filling those flower beds, I do not have a green thumb and will check back to see what they have to say. Ann

So glad I visited you today and saw the peppermint lily because we have one blooming and I had no clue what it was. It has not bloomed in two years.

Perhaps I should have mentioned I am in Zone 8? ;)

Thank you ladies for all of your sweet comments!

I planted a pink fairy Lily a couple of years back, but silly me put it in the shade and it bloomed once or twice and then did not come back again. I think yours are gorgeous!

Hi Tracy! First of all ~ I am thanking your husband for his service to our country and God Bless you as well for your sacrifice. Regarding perennials to help fill in the blank spots, I have found that Irises work well. After they have bloomed you have nice green growth that spreads quite easily. So nice to meet you and I am your newest follower.

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

I have never seen a peppermint lilly before, so pretty. I am not sure about Alabama...we are so much drier here in California. Try a hardy geranium like a cranesbill. The tend to spread without being invasive. Also, shasta daisies are a good one and you can divide them every year and spread them that way.

Your daylily and gladiolia will multiply very nicely. Lantana comes back year after year getting bigger each year. I have an old fashioned one that is probably six feet wide and four feet high now. The newer dwarf varieties stay nice and low but should return. Verbena returns each year as well but mine stops blooming once it gets really hot so not sure it would do that well for you after Spring. Tigerlily come back each year and should multiply as well. And petunias can be long lived in my area and yours. They will fill out nicely. They are not perennials but are annuals however, the ones on my front porch are last summer's and still blooming. I usually get about two years of blooms from them.

Hi Tracy...thanks for stopping by to visit at Nanaland and leaving a kind comment!! I have heard of several Kendall's who are boys. In fact I went to school with a boy who was a Kendall back in the 60s. He was the only one I ever knew. Most people think our Kendall is named for a soap opera character but she was not.lol...I live in Decatur, Alabama. My hubs works in Huntsville. We love the Gulf Shores area but have not been there since our kids were little. We usually go to Tybee Island as my husband is from Savannah, Ga. We love North Alabama and have lived here for 28 years now. I enjoyed looking at your blog too!!
