I take so many pictures of flowers. Having nearly given up on blogging, I had no outlet for sharing the pictures. Having decided to try to get back to blogging, and believing that every blog post needs pictures, well, why not share some of my flower pictures?
An entire field of purple coneflower (echinacea) near my Dad's house.
A few new plants about to be purchased and planted...
..as an addition to this area. At the beginning of the season this was nothing but weeds and landscape rock. My husband and I spent several weekends removing everything. We picked all of the rock out by hand. We've been relocating it to the back gardens because we have a dog who likes to dig. The rocks are helping put a stop to her digging. (The above picture was taken before I added the plants from my shopping cart.)
And finally, my own purple coneflower, which is in it's third year.
We have made great progress on our gardens this year. When we purchased this house 3-1/2 years ago everything was an overgrown, neglected mess. There is still much to do, but we feel like we turned a corner this year. Now there is more good than bad, so there is hope of taming the entire thing.
