Al you are going to start naming names to all of those flowers, I recognize some of them but not others. You certainly have a green thumb with the flowers and the camera.

Thanks for the nice pics, brings a little hope while waiting for spring.

Mildred :D :D :wave:


Judy.


Jewel.


Jill.


Kare is the care taker of the flower gardens. I do not touch any thing when I am in the flower gardens either. I'm afraid I would end up like the snakes. OH the snakes, Kare caught them eatting frogs and toads so she chops them in half with a pair of big sissors I got her.


Also if you want the common names I can do that but not the latin names.

:D Al

Al, your wife sounds like my kind of lady! I have a hard time letting a snake live, they scare the tar out of me.

The flowers are just beautiful! Thanks for giving my winter tired eyes a picture of summer.

Gorgeous! Is that a Balloon Flower? (post #1, photo #4)

Also, what is the flower in the 1st photo of the 2nd post? And the shrub (last photo, 2nd post?) I may want to add some of those! Do bees like them?

Yes the one is a bloonflower that isn't fully open yet.
The yellow one is call trout lily and is wild in our woods.
The shrub is Heater and the bees just go nuts over it.

Mildred is a sucullant called ice plant. It is low growing and used as a ground cover. Like most sucullants the bees just love it. It also comes in yellow but it didn't like our place so each and every time we planted it it died.
