I planted these seeds I got from 14 + last spring(2010),they look really nice in my little frontgarden.

I think the white bush is some kind of Hydrangea,forgot the name and then my two favorite flowers

Very pretty, chico! Hummingbirds go crazy over the phlox here so keep your eyes peeled! But I think the boys take the prize, too.

It might. Better yet, any place you can hang a basket of red impatiens near the feeder? Or if you have a portable shepherd's hook, hang a feeder from it out by the phlox.

I don't suppose anyone knows which species of phlox that is? It's a lovely colour. The Hydrangea is beautiful, but such a great photo of the cats, your white one is such a star, very photogenic.

These phlox grow wild all around. The purple is the easiest one to get seeds from if you want to try to naturalize some in your flowerbeds. I do have a small amount of pink and white ones growing in the fields this year so I may venture out to try to get seed once they are ready. I love the way they look for a background for some other early bloomers. Seeing as I haven't had much time lately to work in my gardens I thank you for posting pics here chico. They look nice there.
Of course those black and white flowers are a couple of my favourite ones around.

14+,I know some people call them weeds,I prefer to call them wildflowers and they look really pretty now,when not so much else is blooming.
