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 plant I picked out was the Black-Eyed Susan. I love this flower because it brings back fun memories of living in Mississippi where Black-Eyed Susans grow on the side of old dirt roads…
A little throwback action to a 2012 VIP photo shoot in Mississippi.
I paired Black-Eyed Susans 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…ugly. The old tree stump made the porch area 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 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.
