Thanks so much, Lissa, glad you enjoyed them.  Looking forward to some of your pics too when spring heads your way.  Thanks for looking/commenting!  I'm a flower nut for sure.  Happy gardening!

Grant - your flowers are gorgeous - I love the yellow one - reminds me of a flower fairies would love to have in their garden!

Here's a nice white geranium blooming outside in my garden right now.  They're so easy autumn, winter, spring and early summer here, giving us 9 months of easy color.  They fade during the hottest summer months so I either bring them indoors, take cuttings, or just replace them with heat lovers like zinnias or vincas.  Happy gardening, flower lovers!

We are back down to average temperatures here in the Phoenix, Arizona area, but that still means pleasant mild weather.  Here are some containers blooming on my patio right now.  Easy, fun color from autumn through early summer.  Happy gardening!

Here's a cute "mini-petunia" (Calibrachoa) blooming in my garden this week.  I really like the color and pattern on these little blooms, I hope you do too. :)

Hi everyone, we're just entering our long Petunia Season here in the Phoenix, Arizona, USA area, so I thought I'd just share a pic of some double flowered, white edged petunias in a hanging basket out in my garden.  The blooms smell so wonderful at night!  Happy gardening!

Hi all, nothing fancy, but still some nice sunny yellow blooms.  This is my Tecoma stans which is making a nice flush of blooms these days.  If you like bright green leaves and bright yellow blooms, on a plant that takes heat and sun with very little water, and you have a relatively mild winter (root hardy to USDA zone 7 with protection) think about giving these a try.  Mine get a bit floppy, but really do bloom for nine months a year.  Take care and happy gardening, Grant.

Hi everyone great pics and posts!  Here's just a quick and casual pic of some California "fucshia" blooming away in my garden right now (unrelated to the true fuchsia of course).  The plant is great for hot summer warm winter areas and blooms off and on spring through very late autumn.  It self sows nicely AND the hummingbirds go crazy for it (another name for it is "hummingbird bush").  I hope you'll take a look and enjoy.  Botanically it's known as Zauschneria californica, and it's a winner in my little garden.  Happy gardening!

Karl, Thank you for the photo's. My daughter and I visited my sister and family years ago in PA, and she took us to Longwood Gardens... We both still have pictures we took hanging on our walls at home and I have a few in my office at work. She got hooked on photography because of that place and the pictures she took were awesome!!! What a wonderful place to work!!!
I'm envious!! I don't even have a window in my office, but lots of great pictures!!!
