Ooo I love flowers. The last few years I've really gotten into gardening. Sadly my foxgloves have all flowered and died back now, but I'll get the lilies and dahalias tomorrow.

I love flowers. I put in a bed in the flower yard this year :D .

Camel, you should take some of the liatrus (the purple stalks) with you. They seem to be hard to find.

Plant in pots that can be transported if you have to pick up and move.

Will you still be in Elmiria with this place, or more out in the country>?

Very pretty flowers! camel24j, you have everything we have here, right down to the cedar tree! :lol: The only exception is we don't have the purple stuff (sorry, don't know what they are called). I absolutely love the color combination of purple and yellow when it comes to flowers.......and those lillies! Heavens, we have those to, and you need sunglasses the pink is so bright!

I think my all time fave flower though, has to be the black eyed susans! They just hold a very special place in my heart. A very simple flower, yet hardy, and very beautiful all in one.

Got some dry weather and some time to take some, we have had heavy rain and wind here so its wiped out a lot of the pettles on my dahlias.

I'll start with the lillies






In the bootom left is the flowers from one of my hostas, then that is the hybrid rhododendron and behind that with the organge flowers is a lombresha (not a clue how to spell that).



I can't remember the name of this next one, I have it in a book. I know it begins with a Z.


Here are my sunflowers growing, the first pot on the right has tiger flowers in it and the next one some dwarf dahlias.


And now the Dahlias, some of them are a bit beaten.











I've got more Dahlias coming up, but they haven't flowered yet. I can't wait to see what colour they will be.

I believe the flower you can't identify is a calla lily. The leaves are right, and so is the flower shape. It's so very pretty. I might learn to appreciate purple after all! :)
ahhh. I have a yellow one as well but the pictures were both blurry.

Here is a nice shot of a rose from the garden of our family home.

I'm compiling some shots of the house which is being sold following my father's death in April.

I haven't lived there for many years but all the family assembled for Christmas and other gatherings.
