favorite blooms

Many of the seeds that I have planted in the last few months have disappointed me and I have a garden full of markers where they should have bloomed. :( But, I have hopes that they will bloom next year and, until then, I am enjoying the blooms that I have. 

This is a phacelia.

I like the little blue forget-me-not among the gazenias.

I wish these glads would grow facing the same way!


We had cows in the paddocks surrounding the house, too, and they kept a wary eye on me as I took photos of the the flowers and them.

Love the bright flowers and the questing looks from the cows. Both are lovely.

I admire the gladioli, which are only to bloom with us in August, they are very beautiful to look at! It is always unfortunate when flowers that you have sown do not rise, which is very unfortunate.

I love your flowers as well as the pictures of the cows. I hope, all of the seed will bloom next year.

Oh, it is so dreary here in Ohio USA right now so your flower pictures were wonderful to view this morning. They all are so pretty. I'm not much of a green thumb when it comes to flowers...love them, but just don't know that much about the variety and growing them. Yours brought some sunshine for sure...and always love photos of cows. Thank you for sharing. :)

Forget-Me-Nots are my favorite too. I'm not sure they will grow here, but I am going to try.

Hello Bettyl, you've the most gorgeous blooms in your garden. I love those sweet little Forget me Nots winding their way through the Gazanias too - so pretty.
I'm glad you included the cows in some pics, that last one especially is lovely and in a beautiful setting.
Cheers now :D)
