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.
Right....if I get a new camera will I have flower boxes as lovely as those???
Your garden looks lovely Denise....cool and inviting! Your new cameral seems to take wonderful photos....you are going to have a wonderful opportunity to put it to every test possible in Alaska! I'm looking forward to seeing your Alaska album!!
edited to put in this photo...since you don't have begonias in your planters this year you can share these ones from Fairmont Hot Springs Resort!
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.
