Why is it the years I completely neglect my garden, I seem to get the best flowers???? This post was going to be about my latest project, but whilst burning the dinner and thinking about my latest project, I happened to notice some snapdragons growing in a basket on my back patio. Not a particularly remarkable thing to notice, I like snapdragons, they aren't unusual flowers to see in a garden, unless of course you haven't planted any in three years! Somehow, these lovely annual flowers have sprung up in the baskets that originally contained pansies and I even found a lovely yellow one growing under the stairs off the back patio.
So upon discovery of these little spots of gorgeousness (little gifts of colour directly from mother nature herself), I took that short wander I have been know to take around our itty bitty patch here at the Gephart.
Just take a look at the colour thats still hanging around our garden ::
The marigolds, grown from seeds that sweet Little J handed to me with love and a smile on Mothers Day - these are magnificent this year! A real shock of bright orange and yellow colour.
Geraniums.....still blooming, despite the neglect.
A simply ENORMOUS bush of red 'mums, which have miraculously survived from LAST year!!! :-0
An some lovely new 'mums for this year, in my favorite autumn colour - orange. These have only been at the Gephart a few weeks and I am in shock the bugs haven't eaten them yet! They don't usually last long around here.
Oh and the real reason for this post - chooks (aussie slang for 'chickens'). I love them.....Would have some if the city would adjust it's ordinances on farm yard animals. Oh and I didn't think chooks would drive our dogs bonkers in their pursuit to chase them!
They are a work in progress and need some 'tweaking'.....
