Aloha!

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!


THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:


It is May 2/4 here in Canada...the first long weekend of the summer! And, our typical planting weekend (risk of frost should be over). I am looking for a vibrant flower that blooms the whole season and packs a lot of punch. Any suggestions? What is your favourite annual?


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Oh gosh, I don't know, sorry - I planted bulbs in '04 so i wouldn't have to keep planting things every year. LOL

Hmm, I love pansies for spring and early summer, but it gets so hot here that I usually have to pull them out and them plant something else that won't fry like vinca or geraniums.

Enjoy the weekend!

I have window boxes that look great with wave petunias in them.

Have a great day!

Favorite annual is definitely impatience, and such pretty colors to group together.

I love Petunias and they are the only flowers that I plant because they are easy to grow.

I'm so not a gardner! I wish I was, but nope, not my gift:) But I do enjoy any pretty purple flower!

OK my hubby is the one who picks out all the flowers for the yard...now of course after the fact, he always ask which ones I like, LOL!
I am a perrineal girl with tulips and iris being my faves...annuals I go more for color such as orange and purples.

I have no idea! I do like tulips.

Nancy said...

I am so not into annuals. I love perennials, and evergreen things, probably because I live in WA, where if its not perennial and evergreen, its just useless. So I love lilacs, butterfly bushes and daisies, magnolia tree flowers. Also daffodils and tulips and those are bulbs but they do come back.

I keep going back to geraniums. They require little work and look beautiful all summer. Our house is grey with black trim and the red geraniums in hanging baskets around our property look beautiful all summer.

I have nothing. Mmmm...maybe snapdragons & pansies.

CanadianMama said...

I've never been a gardner but the new house had tons of space for flowers and veggies and what not. I cant' wait to get started and all the comments here got me thinking :)

Sorry I can't help you with this question. I'm such a garden newbie.

I have to agree with your answer to my food question: chocolate, strawberries and whipped cream sound amazing to me!

I have no idea. I'm so sorry I wasn't any help. It's great that you're looking around though. You should call your local nursery and see what they suggest.

Hope you have a great weekend!

What did you pick from CSN? I went practical not fun.

Try www.gardenweb.com

We've had good luck with petunias ... bright colors, pretty hardy and they last a long time.
