Lowcountry Spring and Summer Flowers

Our yard is terrible this year.  Really terrible.  Thank you fertilizer brand that rhymes with "spots".  Anyway, while we work to recoup the grass and flower beds, I thought I'd reflect on some of my favorite flower bed moments from our past.

We have several perennials and I also like to choose different annuals every spring/summer.

We've got Jasmine growing along on the fence and up our trellis and pergola.  The quintessential Southern flower for a reason, Jasmine blooms around Mother's day and the gorgeous light scent seems to fill the air in Charleston.

We have a dwarf Magnolia tree.

And Black-eyed Susan's that come back year after year.

I love white flowers.  Alyssum are so fluffy and fresh.  They don't tend to last into the heat of the summer, but I can't resist planting a few plants every spring.

I really love multicolored flowers and gravitate toward Zinnias   They grow and multiply and surprise you with burst of color.

Hopefully we can pull our yard back together before fall arrives.

In the meantime, what are your favorite summer flowers?
