My Flowers

Wow, look at my flowers! I wouldn't be posting this, but these particular flowers require a lot of patience.
The columbines I had to start from seed in the house.
Then, once you plant them, you have to wait two years for them to bloom!
The purple flower is called a Clamatis. Is is a vine. It also takes two years.
I have been trying to cover this side of my house for a long time. One, because it is all white on that side with only a small window so it is quite boring to look at.
Two because all of the TV wires and the electric box is on the side of the house that EVERYONE sees when they are driving by. Could the builders put it on the side that no one sees? NOOOO! Not very good planning if you ask me!

You'll notice the stones aren't all there for the border yet either! Patience people, I can only buy so many at one time! Now I just need a flowering bush that grows about 7 feet so I can hide the utility box!
