Thursday Challenge : Flowers
These are the flowers that are currently blooming in my garden. I'd like to take credit for these wonderful bursts of color in my backyard, but just like the Japanese Maple, they were here when we moved in. The work of the green thumb that lived in the house before us. It's a nice treat to go in the backyard and see these pretty flowers in bloom. Hopefully, I can get some of my own in there. I've got several boxes of bulbs and a couple of packets that I need to start planting.
We'll see in a couple months if I've got that green thumb. But chances are, it will be the black pinkie of death and desctruction.

wow, these are so beautiful... now if i can get off my tushie and upload my pix, i can post pretty flowers on my site too!
ooOOooo... very pretty flowers.
You have a very pretty garden. I can't wait to see it when YOUR flowers grow (and some of them WILL grow, believe it).
guess who no longer has ANY appreciation for flowers, especially geraniums?
that's not entirely true. i like flowers...so long as I'M not the one who has to plant them.
If you need gardening tips, let me know. Main thing is that plants need water...not too much but not too little. Most people kill plants because they either flood them so much that you need an ark or they think their plants drink air.
Awsome shots. The shot of the flowers that you think were in your wedding bouqet reminded me of something. I had some ivy in my wedding bouquet. When hubby and I went on our honeymoon, my mother in law had taken the Ivy and started roots. She then planted the Ivy in her yard. When Hubby and I bought our house about a year later, she brought the Ivy over and I planted it. I now have an Ivy patch in my yard that was from my wedding bouquet. Cool huh!
