Lovely garden, Chico - we have some of the same plants too - echinacea (sp?), black-eyed susan and others. Yours looks much more like a garden than mine does though - mine resembles an out-of-control wild area!

So pretty, Chico. Someday I'm gonna keep my flowers alive long enough to take pictures like that! (hazel has a green thumb...only it's mold )

Thank's,but it's really not organized,it's an organized mess and I usually go for the simpler plants almost guaranteed to live,right now my Butterfly-bushes and the Hibiscus are my favorites

Hazel,I would trade you my garden in a sec,if I would be able to care for 7 beautiful dogs

he he I could use a little organized mess like that in my gardens! When I win the lotto, how would you like to sign on as head gardener, dog groomer, and hummingbird feeder filler? (You might have to arm-wrassle Lukka'sma over that last position, though ) I'd be very generous with the wages and you'd get all the free dog slobber you'd want!

So colorful and dreamy Chico2. I forgot what a garden in our yard looks like , but the dogs had so much fun re-landscaping .

Thank you for sharing.
