You know what? If you're a gardener, I bet you probably have tons of pictures of flowers from your garden! I sure do. And if you're anything like me, you have them stored right on your PC! When I get the winter blues, I just sit down at my computer, click the mouse, and begin taking a long, leisurely stroll through my gardens. I think I'll start with Marigolds. I just love Marigolds. They have always been a long time favorite of mine. They are just so darn easy to grow.
And what would summer be without Shasta Daisies? One summer these bright white, cheery flowers were absolutely striking as they bloomed alongside some Rose Campion.
And Morning Glories? They greet you in the morning and say good-bye in the afternoon. They come in a variety of colors, but I'm partial to Heavenly Blue. These were happily growing in a window box.
Poppies ... the flower with petals as soft as silk. I happen to adore poppies. This one is a Double Shirley Poppy. With its layers of pretty pink ruffled petals, it reminds me of a little girl's frilly party dress.
There is such a variety of summer flowers you can grow in your garden. Don't forget to make some pretty bouquets throughout the summer to enjoy indoors. And don't forget to take lots of pictures. Looking at them will lift your spirits on a cold, snowy winter days.
Spring Is Coming!
