New ferns

I'm so glad I have a gardener/green-thumb dad who likes to share the plant-love with others! Last week Mom and Dad bought a bunch of ferns being sold as a fund-raiser for some worthy group, and they gave us six of the plants. Not only that, but Dad installed hooks, got hanging baskets and hung all the ferns for us.

Dad put two on the carport...

...and four on the front porch.

Oh, they're beautiful! Ferns... that's a good idea... hmmm.

Really, I do need to borrow your Dad. :-)

Yes, I think someday you should come here and meet him - he'll be your gardener for life! Anyone who appreciates plants has a place in Dad's heart.

Your home and surrounding landscape are so beautiful! It looks very peaceful.

Looks so pretty. My problem with potted plants is that I get tired of watering them in the heat of the summer when they dry out so quickly.

I love ferns, and they look so pretty! They don't do well up here, though, so I'll just enjoy looking at yours! :0)

Beautiful, Laura! Yes, can your dad stop by my place, too? ;)

I wish I could loan my dad out to everyone! (He also comes by every few days to water the plants he gives us - we really only have to appreciate the beauty...)

I would love that.

Also, I meant to ask, what is that stunning bush on the left of the front porch photo? The one with all those brilliant blooms? Would that survive on a Northern exposure?

That bush, dear Dy, is an azalea bush. Before we moved here I'd never seen one in that particular RED color, but yes, northern exposure seems to be fine, as that azalea bush is in the front of our house, which faces north.
