Beautiful Mandevilla

I think I have a new favorite flower to plant every year.  My mandevilla is bursting with blooms and buds and seems to grow a little more every day.

It's fun to see how much my flowers have grown over the last month.  I've hardly had to water anything with all the rain we've received lately.

Well, I am glad yours is doing good. Maybe mine isn't getting enough sun. Mine is on the front porch and gets about six or so hours of sun. It had aphids or something on the leaves and I sprayed it with seven. It has lost several leaves and is growing, but not well. I was thinking of not getting one again. I love yours though. Mine has dark pink flowers. I like your white ones.

Beautiful flowers Emily! I've never tried a mandevilla but I think I might have to next year after seeing your photos. Love the combination planter you did. Sweet potato vine is one of my favorite annuals.

Your pots are doing so pretty too!

I love the white one.... I have pink and the flowers are falling....the vine part is growing though. Your gardens are doing so well this year!

All your garden pictures are so lovely, Emily. I love the iron piece in your pot. And I really like your wreath - I'm going to have to bookmark it so that I can look back. It's just very fresh and springish. Love it!

Emily, I don't know which is more impressive... your photography skills or that beautiful mandevilla! Both are gorgeous! I love them... but, have a pretty shady yard right now. I'm tempting fate by trying some succulents. I'm keeping my fingers crossed they will get enough sun and I won't over water them!

Oh your plants are beautiful! I've tried so many times, but I have no luck! I just have to live vicariously through wonderful gardeners like you! Thanks for visiting my blog, hope to see you again!

I have been wanting a mandevilla - love your white one - I think if I had one I'd have to overwinter it in the house - but, looks like it would be worth it!

Gorgeous mandevilla! I've never had white, but just might have to try one next year. You are a wonderful photographer! I love the cucumber swirl pic on your side. And, the raspberries. And, the tomatoes. And, Stanley. Oh my, very nice.
