Share a Garden Sunday – Developing a New Garden Bed

Late last Friday June 12 I got the idea of putting the two new Iceberg roses in a new bed under the bedroom window where I could see it close-up. A new bed was formed on Monday and the two roses planted I showed pictures on my Outdoor Wednesday post of the new bed which I decided should be white with blue.

Then on Thursday 6/18 I bought some white Wave petunias, White begonias and MiniFamous Compact Safran ‘Calibrachoa’ and Dusty Miller to add a silvery gray accent.
The Safran ‘Calibrachoa’ promises to provide an abundance of brightly colored blooms all season long.

I love the texture and form of begonias and the white ones are a favorite.
I've only got one dusty Miller planted because my back forced me to stop and go inside. Besides, it is very wet since it has been raining off and on. We're supposed to have rain every day this week.

Now I must look for blue plants to bring my idea for a blue and white garden to fruition. I want to plant some perennials as well as annuals.

In the meantime, a terracotta planter with purple petunias and coleus adds some color to the developing garden bed.

Tomorrow I will post about the brand new front garden.
