Something to cheer the spirit?

Another grey, damp week with little opportunity to seek out wildlife due to work commitments so I'm posting a few images from my garden, taken last summer, to remind me of what is to come.......

  2. You splash of color from your garden makes me smile- especially at this point during our long, dark, COLD Minnesota winter.

  3. Beautiful flowers. It is even more lovely this time of the year when everything is so drab and dull.

  6. Neil, The Dahlia's are grown in pots & need a little TLC but I just let everthing else do it's own thing and marvel at what reappears every year.

  7. That Geranium looks different than any I have ever seen. It is really pretty, as all the flowers you have posted here.

  8. Hi Leedra,
    The Geranium is 'renardii' - 30cm height & spread - flowers are white or blue-tinted with maroon-purple veins. Leaves are rounded, wrinkled & soft hairy. Native habitat is cliifs & rocky meadows in the Caucasus mountains but a hardy garden plant here if grown in well-drained soil in full sun. My soil is fairly heavy (clay) but it still seems to survive, well hopefully into summer 2009.
    I will post some other images of garden flowers from time to time - I'll try to remember to add the full name in future.
