Green Thumb Sunday

It's Green Thumb Sunday, hosted by Tricia at As the Garden Grows. If you'd like to participate, just click on the link to find out how.

My front garden is in bad need of weeding and taming down. Every year the flowers above, which were given to me by my neighbor, try to take over the entire flower bed. This year is no different. These flowers, (I can't remember what they are called) are pretty, but they get very thick.
I love the blanket flowers above. They give a nice showing for a few weeks. They are once again in bloom and I'm glad that they survived our harsh winter. I was in the garden center the other day and picked up two more plants. I'm going to plant them in the side garden. That way I can harvest the seeds if I lose the ones in the front. The front of our house is very exposed to the elements, as it is in an open area and on the west side of the house.

Enjoy your Sunday and take a little time for yourself. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. We have the blanket flowers too - Ours are also blooming very nicely now.

  2. Oh....pretty blanket flowers Mary. A great showing of color!

    Whatcha doing today? Nothing? Or are y'all working on renovations today again? It's raining heavily here again. Well earlier that is. But it's so quiet and calm now I'm sitting here looking out the window and enjoying the fine mist that continues to fall. A wonderful day for me. [No yard work. hehehehehe]

  3. Mary,

    Have a great Sunday!


  4. My camera has been broken until last night....... so I have no new pictures for will just enjoy yours........My garden also needs some attention but it is tooooooooooo hot!

    Have a great Sunday

  5. I don't know what the first flower is either, but it sure is lush looking with all the lovely foliage. I had some Blanket flower several years ago, but it didn't do very well for me. I tend to go for the easy to raise plants.

  6. Mary,
    You have pretty blanket flowers!!Nancy has had her insulin shot,
    and had lunch. I have a few minutes to write a note.
    The rest of the gang are up at a friend of my daughter Carrie. They went swimming! Too much sun for Nancy! Lupus patients are not suppose to be in much sun! Besides it is Hot and humid! Love, Grams

  7. Once again Beautiful flowers!
