Welcome to the next installment of the Blogging From A to Z Challenge: the letter G.
And it's Gardening!
I absolutely love flowers and gardening but I am a pretty haphazard gardener. I just put things in where I feel like it. I only halfway pay attention to whether the plant is a sun or shade lover. And I definitely do not create one of those fancy designed gardens that you always see on HGTV.
I absolutely have to have sunflowers in my garden every year because they're my favorite flower. So I go overboard with them. I also have to have marigolds, chrysanthemums, roses and my new love: irises. I've never had irises until we moved into this house and there were already some here. They're gorgeous, and easy. I love them. Otherwise, I just buy what makes me happy and attracts my eye in the store or Burpees catalog. I loooooove getting this in the mail. There have been several times I've been tempted to just plop on the sidewalk to pore through it. Below are some photos that I took in August 2010 of flowers in my garden. Enjoy.
