Wax Begonia – Workhorse of the Garden

After yesterday’s rain I went for a walk in my garden and found wax begonias blooming heartily where I planted them earlier this year. I may have neglected them but they didn’t neglect me.

What’s In My Garden?

Cats Tiger and Benji believe the backyard is their kingdom and who am I to tell them otherwise? Birds I dream of a world where cats and birds live together in peace. Until then I keep an eye on both. Bees and Herbs I’m… Continue Reading “What’s In My Garden?”

It was our first time at Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm… Continue Reading “Glorious Tulips at Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival!”

Bloom Where You’re Planted – Or Not!

They say you should bloom where you are planted. My Clematis thinks otherwise and is climbing up, up, up and over to escape the confines of my yard, fence or whatever else is in the way. I think it has the better idea. ~… Continue Reading “Bloom Where You’re Planted – Or Not!”

Dropping by with Wildflowers for Earth Day

I’ve been busy road tripping this month and haven’t had much time for photo challenges. So in between my travel posts I thought I’d share some wildflowers for earth day for Becky’s Squares and Sunday Stills from our road trip. First are daisies I… Continue Reading “Dropping by with Wildflowers for Earth Day”
