I love the Ozarks and I have no complaints about spending time in my hometown, Branson. My camera is filled with images of flowers, container gardens, and Ozarks landscapes.
So, it was a nice surprise this morning when some of my flowers came to me via email. Neighbor Bill sent photos of some of the blooms along with this note, ” Thank you for the beauty.”
It brought a tear of joy and surprise to my eye. So, I’m sharing a few of the photos with you.This is Summer Valentine. With pink blooms, a magenta eye and picotee edges. From All American Daylilies http://www.allamericandaylilies.com/
This double day lily was here when I moved in. It is beautiful and best planted in masses. The blooms don’t last long or repeat and I don’t know the name. It requires little attention, but when it blooms this bright orange day lily is not to be ignored.
The hummingbirds love this petite heirloom gladiolas.Bright red trimmed in a slim edge of silver, beautiful up close or tucked in a cutting garden. A favorite of mine, there is no such thing as too many Atom glads.
http://www.oldhousegardens.com is my gardening secret.
I have great neighbors.
