My flower garden



It doesn't look like much now, but in the coming weeks, this should be a kaleidoscope of color!  I don't remember the name of the tall plant in the center, but it has bright red blooms by mid-summer.  In the front are Black-eyed Susans, that soon will be covered in bright orange blooms with dark centers.


This is the beginning of a bloom of one variety of Shasta Daisy.


Another variety of Shasta Daisy.


A single bloom on one of the coneflower plants.  Later in the summer, these plants will be tall and covered with purple blooms.

I have to plant deer-resistant plants in my front yard.  But "deer-resistant" doesn't mean deer PROOF!  So I sprinkle grated Irish Spring bath soap and human hair around my plants in my never ending war with the deer!

Watch for later updates on my garden this season.

  1. You are so good! I go out and mess around for two or three minutes, then go in and look for a name of a landscaper on line. I used to garden daily, but there is great frustration in being gone ten weeks at a time and coming home to a mess. I look forward to seeing pictures of your garden as the summer progresses. :)
