Passionate purple

Services for Real Estate Pros with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

Good morning everyone-I have some shrubs that are blooming in my garden for the summer.  I have several of them in different locations. They are Hibiscus. In addition to the purple ones which I have more of I also have a pink. one and a wht with maroon edges. That should be in bloom soon. My butterfly bushes are also starting to bloom. There is pink and purple ones. So I am hoping for lots of butterflies.  i also have a purple crape myrtle in blossom

One of 5 Hibiscus

One of 6 Crape Myrtle's

One of 6 butterflies bushes

 

A surprise pansy. I didn't plant this but somehow it grew in here. I have moved potting soil from different places so I guess these grew from transferred seeds.

Purple is a fav color of my friend Kathy Streib

I editted some myself today but I don't think they will survive. It has been in the 90's here for the second week and it will cool down a few days but then heat back up again. Busy in RE is good

Hey, here I am. It worked and brought me here. Very pretty flowers! I have 6 dwarf butterfly bushes out front, they keep the deer from eating my roses.

Nothing makes me happy like looking at my back yard at the flowers we have planted.  Enjoy these all summer long!

You will get lots of butterflies. Also, look into planting Pentas next year. So pretty, hammers love them too.

Sharon- I adore purple and hibiscus so that purple hibiscus is just perfect.  Pentas, as Toni Weidman said are great for butterflies.

Very nice color palette from nature. We're at the point in our Las Vegas summer where it's just too hot for anything, but looking forward to adding some back yard color in the fall.

Kathy-I took the pics with you in mind. I think I have pentas but not sure if what I have is what she is talking about but they are purple and wht.

Karen-I will see what I can do. Smiling

John-Thank you and yes Nevada would be a bit too warm and it is great that you still have the fall season to have your color. We do for a while until frost takes the color.

Your plants are all doing so well. I love seeing the pictures of them. I'll be showing some of my veggie garden in another couple of weeks. I got a late start and want to have everything looking really good before I share. So far it's all doing fine.

Hi Debbie-I am smiling because that is exactly what I wanted to make sure of. Several people told me they wanted to see the progress. Look forward to seeing your garden. I have raspberries now and I have tomato and summer squash.

You have such a nice garden, much more than I've ever had. I was lucky that my current home had nice landscaping and we didn't have to add much because I just don't have the patience and enthusiasm for it like you do.

I want to plant a few butterfly bushes. I like the way they look and I like having butterflies around.
