a couple of years ago my next door neighbour inspired me to do my gardens, his gardens are so colourful! my place was very bleak at the time, he gave me some seeds to start & allowed me to collect more as they came available. some have come up, the zinnias, a lovely yellow daisy, which has since died back, some dianthus also came up with lovely crimson flowers. not all the seeds came up, am hoping to get more from Green Harvest eventually.
|Cosmos & Zinnias are as tall as i am! soon to burst into more flowers|

i love lots of different flowers, roses, lilies, daisies, zinnias, cosmos, iris, dahlias, hippeastrum, agapanthus, flowering herbs, lot's more that i can't think of, etc, one day i will have lots & lots of variety out in the garden. went looking online for the 'granny bonnets', columbines i think they are, that rhonda has in her garden, so pretty! but alas there weren't any in season, so no seeds.

what i want to do is slowly get these flowers growing in other areas of the gardens, under the trees & over on the west side for more colour. i also want to get various herbs growing in between too. so this will probably be a slow project for this year.
|crocus, people around here call them storm lilies|

i had some visitors who were a little surprised to see me so close.
|right out front of the window. never been this close to them.|
hope you all had a great weekend
