I love flowers and wanted to share some pictures of what's growing in the garden and on our courtyard. Hope you enjoy them!
The above plants reseeded themselves from last year. What a delight to have them come up!
This is a new plant to me. It is a butterfly host plant. I have lots of butterflies and am trying to get more to come to the yard.
Another volunteer sunflower! (*Hint-I feed the birds the small black oil sunflower seeds. They get scattered about and probably blown by the wind. The bonus is flowers like this!)
A houseplant I got from an elderly neighbor that died. She loved flowers as much as I do! She was a pleasure to sit and visit with. I miss that dear friend but think of her every time I water "her" flowers.
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST--I'd like to introduce you to Ottis and Pearl.
We were given the pond by the sons of the late neighbors. I've got a good bit of work to do to get it looking like I want it to but at least they have a new home now and will be very well taken care of! I promise! So, in closing, Pearl wanted me to show y'all a better picture of her and Ottis. She felt they looked kind of "washed out" in the previous one.
I pinky promise I will get her house spotless, just like she would have kept it! Love you both Ottis and Pearl! Mean it!
