    Pretty color combination Charlene.  You know I am obsessive about pulling weeds, girl.  I even find myself pulling them from other people’s gardens.  LOL

    Some older pictures I haven’t posted yet.

    A different Tiger Lily.  Called Rose Tiger Lilly

    Volunteer Coneflower

    Japanese Iris.  (I should have put this on Sandy’s thread this weekend)

    Charlene, what beautiful flowers you have there.  Love the red and yellow.

    Gayle, that Salvia is gorgeous.

    Here are the flowers that Eva sent as mystery seed.  They are still a mystery to me.  Does anyone know what this is??

    My pansy pot…ivy geranium from Charlene, and Aloha Calibrochea

    Julie-That sure looks like some type of zinnia based on leaves and the shape of the flower, but as to what type I don’t know.

    Julie….I believe those are either nemophilia.  I grew them one year and they were supposed to be blue….but they bloomed orange.

    This is the only pic I could find….they are on the left…..same seed as the blue ones on the right.

    Or they are diascia

    Took this Sunday I think…First butterfly that I have seen this year of this size…on Cone flower

    Pink on Pink….Tropical Hibiscus that I over wintered last year….with Pink Impatients 

    Side view of same …..I think some of my impatients have the disease that was in the plants last year….they( some of them)  look like they got scalded with hot water. 

    my little Teddy Bear sunflowers…..

    and I have a very colorful display out back looking out of dinning room window…Black eyed Susans.  Taken through the window, so has screen  x’s  on it…sorry.

    went to back porch and took for better picture of them.

    Loved every ones photos today…so pretty.   Have a good and Blessed week.

    Look at the leaves.  Nemophila leaves and diascia leaves are much different than those.

    Here are some images of them

    nemophila

    diascia

    To me it still looks like a leggy zinnia.

    I’m with you Mel, they look like my Profusion Zinnias that got not long ago…JMO..lol…  As usual, pictures are great,  Taky, your pot looks so fresh and full, you have to see my trailing Ivy Geranium, looks like chewed up by the devil, so the leaves of most of Zinnias….grasshoppers?  Those pink Hibiscus with pink Impatient are my kind of color…EVEN thought I love corals/blush/orange blooms right now…and that B.fly its worth the waiting…I love my round planter, it really got full this time…

    First I want to thank Charlene for helping me out last night. It really means a lot to have people you can call on for help.

    Charlene… Those yellow flowers are really pretty but those tri colored Chrysanthemums are just gorgeous. The flowers in your second picture are also beautiful but I also see some nasturtiums in there you forgot to mention.

    Gayle… What nice flowers all those are but I really am fond of your hot lips salvia. They are just beautiful.

    Julie… Your mystery flowers sure are pretty what ever they are. That container looks great.

    Charlene… Those are some nice looking flowers in both pictures but I would guess it might be the ones in your second picture.

    Janet… I sure like that big pretty butterfly on the coneflower. All of those other flowers are also beautiful, especially those hibiscus.

    Melissa… Still not sure what Julie’s flowers are but all of those you are showing are some beauties.

    Ili… Your planter sure did get full. It really looks good. I also like that second one with the orange flowers and blue pot.

    Marnee… Wow someone sure got you a beautiful bouquet. Those colors look so good together. 

    Abey… Your butterfly bush looks great. It should provide you with lots of flowers that attracts all kinds of pollinators for years to come. You have lots of nice flowers in that second picture including those pretty red zinnias.

    Marg… Yes theres lots of great pictures today. Glad you are getting to enjoy all these beauties.
