This teenie tiny bee is on a flower the size of a dime. It's blue-eyed grass.This garden was combined from two gardens, three years ago. I started many of these plants from bare roots. This year it exploded! I just love spending time taking care of it!
This is my favorite annual ~ lantana!I started this garden about 3 years ago also. It's actually planted in my neighbors yard. It used to look like a brush pile. It was full of thistle, leaves, and poison ivy. As my neighbor sprayed the poison I asked him what his plans were for it. He said..."whatever you want to do with it" !!! We could see this area from our living room window so I wanted to make it look nice! I can't wait til the rest of the flowers are in full bloom!
I'm not quite sure what's up w/ this cosmo. It was started from seeds that I collected last fall. The original plant was about 4' tall and the blossom was about 4" in diameter. This "offspring" is only about 4" high and the blossom is only about the size of a nickle ~ absolutely adorable!Common whitetail female dragonfly.
I just can't seem to get enough of my gardens! I take a walk around the yard every day just to see what's new ~ and there's always something new! I have plenty to keep me busy in them too ~ weeding, deadheading, photographing, etc... always something to do!
