My Garden Flowers
Last night I went outside to care for my fish ponds and to pick blueberries. As I walked around the yard I noticed all the colors of the flowers so I thought I would share them with you. I don’t ever remember this many of my flowers blooming at the same time and the blueberries are the largest they have ever been. I guess all the rain we have had is to thank for this. The sunflower above is a volunteer plant that grew from the sunflower seeds we feed to the birds. It hasn’t opened completely yet.
I planted these Chicks & Hens plants at my fish ponds. I love the flowers they make.
I feed an acid fertilizer to my Hydrangea to turn the flowers blue. This one must have only drank half of it. They are pink when the soil is low acid and blue when the soil is acidic. The flowers grow huge!
Some of my Sedum plants.
This is a Yarrow flower and if you look close on the left side there is a small green grasshopper.
Hosta flowers that haven’t opened yet.
A good friend gave me these a few years ago.
These are Wave Petunias and the only annual flowers I planted. I put them in flower boxes on each side of my front porch, in two large pots and in the ground.
I am hoping to remodel my fish ponds soon. When I do I will post pictures of it but until then….back to the recipes!
