This summer has been some what a trial for me as I had knee surgery, challenging weather,(like everyone else), an on-going dispute with the person that lives on the property next to mine. But…..looking at MsDeb’s wonderful pics from her daily walkabouts has inspired me to finally sit down and show off some of mine. Oop’s I mean, share some of mine. :}

There have been some nice individual spots as well. These are some of the impatiens I started from seed that I saved from last year. Did any of yours grow, jroot?

This pot are volunteer impatiens…...Maybe I should just let whatever wants to…grow!

These are some very pretty cosmos that I started from seed that I believe Bon shared with me. I just love the colour of them and the way they grow!

I have about a million more pics taken this summer but I’ll save those for another time. :D

Thanks, Greenthumb and jroot. I’m glad you enjoyed the pics.

Greenthumb, the white, cone-shaped flowers are the gooseneck loosestrife that came from jroot.

Thanks Iris

I bought one of those last year and gave to a friend as a thank you for taking care of my dog.

These photos are great. I especially like the ones with the arch and the borders.
