[size=large]Playing with the new camera in the garden….how are your gardens doing? Anyone with new pictures to share?

The flower boxes are filling out finally but I still prefer begonias and will do them next year.

Pictures are great Niecie you should have terrific Alaska pictures. Paw's flowers have really been lush this year. Our begonias we take in green house trim back some of our plants are years and years old. We always root the cuttings too.

I have been having so much trouble walking I have not been able to work on my garden. Wild morning glories have taken over my rose garden. They won't hurt the plants twining up the branches, but they have totally overgrown the small mini roses. I really need to get some help out there.

Love your flowers. I wish I had a flat yard I could grow flowers in. I would LOVE to putter around in a garden! Sigh...

Actually, THIS is Flower. I rescued her from a house I walked in to where her cage was in a corner in a dark room. No one ever paid attention to her, except to give her food. Never played with her, never took her out of her cage... so sad. My heart broke for her. The people had purchased her for $1 at a police auction. Flower has a much better life now. Lots of play time, lots of fresh fruits and lots of fresh veggies, and chicken, which she loves, that and pasta!. (This pic was actually just taken, I see my date got reset in my camera. It's also a Kodak!) I brought Flower home, oh gees, when Sara was about 5 or 6, so that means Flower is now at least 16 or 17 yrs old. She's middle aged!!!

Denise, I remember your wax begonias from last year! I had those last year too and they are pretty but the tuberous begonias make such a beautiful showing....I find their colours so much more vibrant and the blossoms are so large! I'm thinking I might try some on my back deck again next year. I've had great success with them out there because it is so shady and protected from the wind.

They are a beautiful variety Beryl but the wax variety can take a lot of neglect and still do well....very easy to grow. I might have to give the tuberous variety a try again sometime. ;)
