Very beautiful garden. I would love to be able to do this with my yard but I have no green thumb. Almost everything I touch I kill when it comes to flowers or any plant for that matter. I always tend to over water and under water or remove things that I thought were weeds but arent lol

Chico what a green thumb you have. I have lurked and seen some of your beautiful pics. I personally have a brown thumb so I really admire someone who has the talent.

Beautiful as always chico. Not sure if my balloon flowers are open yet or not. Haven't had a chance to go check. Love the gerbera daisies too. One of my favs!

Lovely gerberas, chico2, I keep buying them but really must look up what conditions they like, no doubt I put them in a bad spot. I think I've killed the one in the first photo.
