🌺A Week In Flowers Challenge #GardeningTwitter #Flowers #AWeekInFlowers Day #7

I am joining in with A Week In Flowers blogging challenge brought to you from Cathy at Words And Herbs. I recently enjoyed taking part in the #AlphabettyBlooms challenge over on Twitter and what better way than to keep the lovely colours of summer going with this new challenge.

From now until December 6th, post one or two pictures of flowers to brighten up the winter days for those of us living in the northern hemisphere. Then drop your blog link into Cathy.

My choice of flower for day seven is the Peony. Another plant with lots of varieties. We inherited these two with the garden when we moved here.

Many thanks to Cathy for hosting this blogging meme.

My choice of flower for day six is the Sunflower. Nothing says ‘summer’ as much as one of these in my garden. This year I planted multiple varieties of them which was so much fun. I’ve dried the heads for the seeds too.

My choice of flower for day three is the Hollyhock, a favourite in an English cottage garden. A prolific self seeder and prone to rust, however, they always make me smile.

🌺A Week In Flowers Challenge #GardeningTwitter #Flowers #AWeekInFlowers Day 2

I am joining in with A Week In Flowers blogging challenge brought to you from Cathy at Words And Herbs. I recently enjoyed taking part in the #AlphabettyBlooms challenge over on Twitter and what better way than to keep the lovely colours of summer going with this new challenge.

From now until December 6th, post one or two pictures of flowers to brighten up the winter days for those of us living in the northern hemisphere. Then drop your blog link into Cathy.

My choice of flower for day two is the Tulip. Last Spring when these beauties flowered they surprised me as I’m sure that I didn’t plant them, nor do I remember them from other years. We inherited a lovely selection of garden plants when we moved in almost four years ago, so perhaps growing conditions last year just suited them.

For my first day I bring you these bright Anemones, which I grew for the first time this year. About half germinated, but the ones that did were worth the effort.
