    Your flower garden is so gorgeous! You must spend hours making it look so nice. Thank you for the beautiful photos.
    Cheers!

    Great shots...and I agree with BD...looks like it takes some time to keep it looking that nice...but that's why I grow things...for the process, not necessarily just the end result!
    Thanks for posting.

    The white one is ,I guess you would call it an alba...

    all these guys come up voluntarily !! The great part about perinneals..they come back !!

    the yellow one is in the family but not a true echinaciea..we do have a weird yellow one, but it is not in bloom yet....it is all cone , with very little flower !

    Thanks BD & Matt...
    I use to do the outside with hubby ..that was before orchids !! Hubby does all the maintenance, although I did help him place new mulch down this year !

    He takes his cup of coffee out in the mornings and strolls ,and while strolling he weeds, etc. a little here ...a little there..most all the plants are perinneals...so it is just a matter of keeping invaders out...and re-mulching about every other year.

    That white one is my favorite, I think. That's some garden, Gilda.
