I was out this morning deadheading the flowers between rain showers. I planted three flats of begonias before the rain started yesterday. Checking my rain gauge just to see how much rain we had in the last twenty four hours and discovering it was a whopping four inches and more in the forecast! My flowers and vegetable plants are very happy!
Below are some of the some of the flowers I am able to enjoy every day!
Winky Blue Columbine a perennial
Winky Purple Columbine a perennial
Petunias, I love the simple basic flowers and petunias will continue to bloom all summer long!
Dianthus, an annual that I have not planted before so I am curious to see what this does during the season.
Marigolds, the gold and yellows add so much color to the flower beds!
As I was editing the photos for this blog it dawned on me that when I selected the flowers for my flower beds I chose them like I choose fabrics for a quilt; with a variety of shapes, color, and size!
Make it a great day!
