Today's Flowers and Fresh Soil!!

I have been asked if all of the flowers that I post are from my yard. Yes they are unless otherwise stated and they are usually taken the day I post. Once in a while I will post older photographs but I will state that as well. To join or view more Today's Flowers click on the Today's Flowers Banner on the right of my page!

Getting that fresh dirt !
Dumping that fresh dirt where the 7 inches of rain washed out the ground.
Spreading the dirt.

This is for those who plant Celosia. I threw these in the woods.This area is where I throw all of the after thoughts or too many crowded flowers and they mulitply like rabbits. Looks dead right now, when spring comes........look out!
Beautiful foliage on one of the blueberry bushes. We have more berries than bush!
Fresh dirt for my flower bed!

How lovely to have so many flowers still in your garden Darla! And those butterflies are giving it their seal of approval too.

fabulous set of flowers, all are beautiful..

Susie said...

Your blooms are looking good Darla! And by the way I agree with you, that red plant is not a penta, it is a verbena.

I see you have a "throw-away" garden too! Can't wait to see what you have growing out there in the spring.

Hi Darla,
I really like all your flowers but the Sunflower with the butterfly is special!!

titania said...

Darla, you have a great assortment of flowers. Some of them grow in my garden too. It's nice to see some acquaintances growing in a different garden.

Jan said...

Looks like you had a lot of work to do spreading the dirt around. I love the photo of the sunflower with the butterfly.

I can't believe I didn't leave a comment here yet! I am so scatterbrained. Maybe I left it on a different post of yours and added that I like your bloom day pics. I grow some of the same plants you do. I'm glad you visited my GBBD blog.
