On Friday the gardener came to prune my bushes. I don't do that myself,neither do I weed my garden anymore than necessary

Such a pretty variety of flowers you have in your garden. Did the gardener trim too much? I'm glad you at least get to enjoy your own flowers.

I love the variety you have posted here today. These are so lovely and I really am drawn to those last purple blooms.

Lovely flowers. Like the cow photo at the top of the page. Have a great week. Tomorrow I will be taking Audrey to school for the first time, it will be an experience, the buses no longer run if a child lives within two miles. Before they had pick up if the child lived a mile or farther from school, they just all had to meet at certain corners. But the levy/ bond issue did not pass, so now they either walk or parents take them.

What absolutely beautiful blooms. Just lovely, lovely photographs.

Beautiful flowers. I'm glad that your tulips survived from the snow.

Lovely flowers from your own garden. I'm not a green thumbs type, but I do like to have a few potted flowers and plants in my balcony. Today's flowers inspires me to start growing more flowers in my very own balcony.
Thanks to you and all who inspire me.

What a beautiful variety and such pretty colors!

PERBS said...

Certainly a nice view in your garden if that is what's left!!!!!!!! If I had to choose my favorite, it would be the third from last -- deep pink with white centers.

Thanks for stopping by to see mine.

Absolutely gorgeous! I love the last one, but that's because I love purple ;-)

So pretty! My rose bush had a couple flowers left on it until some dirt bag came along and stole them. I don't know how people have the nerve or lack of morals to go on another person's property and steal their flowers! I planted it at the head of my beloved Adonis' grave, so they are not only stealing flowers from me, but also from the dead.

What a surprise, Reader Will. Gone is the croc - instead a lovely pastoral scene of water meadows and black and white cows.
Somehow Autumn flowers are the loveliest aren't they? Perhaps it is because we are going to have Winter without any.

Nice to see that you have a few flowers still. Are the orange flowers poppies?

You have some very pretty flowers. Mine are all gone, except for my confused petunias, which didn't start blooming until a couple of weeks or so ago.
