A little Porn

of the garden variety............ ok now i have your attention.. here are some shots from the garden........ (and yah i know i am supposed to use the other blog for boring vanilla stuff.. but i decided to post these here cause i have nothing to say today .. of any value or worth)

Let's start with the lilies.. truthfully i don't much like them... the condo association planted them literally EVERYWHERE and they do tend to take over the garden and garden paths.. but still they add a little colour to an otherwise monochrome look........



These are my daisies... i love daisies and have white ones (which for some reason are now finished) my black eyed susans and my cone head purple daisies...

Here is a cone head daisy - the only brave one to have actually opened.....



My black eyed susans are just coming into bloom....


opening.............



opening a lil more.................



almost open............


and last but certainly not least.. my hydrangea... it had a rough start.. i transplanted it in the late spring to a corner of the bigger garden ........ and because it is mixed in with other bushes and flowers i couldn't treat it with the lime stuff i usually do to make the flowers turn purple..........it only has two blooms this year.. and a big sick in colour.. but i am hoping next year it will be laden with white blooms and i can offically call it a "snowball bush"..........

Plants Boring? Never! It's interesting to see how much later your flowering season is where you are compared to North West Europe. A few degrees further north makes a lot of difference.
