Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to VIP Home!

This week on VIP Home, I am going to chat about what fabulous flowers I used to landscape my green space. So, before I get distracted because I am typing this outside, let’s take a look at photos + details.

The first flowers I picked out were "Black Eyed Susan". I have always loved these, and they bring back fabulous memories of living in Mississippi where Black Eyed Susan grew on the side of old dirt roads...

A little throwback action to a 2012 VIP photo shoot.

I paired Black Eyed Susan with "Pow Wow" Wild Berry Coneflowers and Rusian Sage. I love the play on colors :)

Rusian Sage, Spearmint, and "Grand Marshall" Bee Balm creates a magical aroma that makes sitting outside a joy :)

Of course, I had to add a fun yard flamingo *wink*

Prior to landscaping, this space next to my steps was very...quirky. The old tree stump made the space feel hopeless...Until, one day, I decided to embrace the stump. Let's all hug a stump...I mean tree *wink*  Around the stump, I planted a variety of Lantana.

Bless this sweet plants heart...I cannot tell y'all how many times I have almost-killed this potted plant as well as my fern--

Bless these sweet plants’ hearts…I cannot tell y’all how many times I have almost-killed them as well as my fern–

Behold my pretty, actually-alive-for-once fern. If there is one thing I have learned in my apartment landscaping experience, it is that keeping plants alive is WAY HARDER than magazines make it out to be.
