    Outstanding blooms. The bloomin season is here. I really enjoy all your different varieties of flowers. So nice to see you have given us a peek at your bloomers. Hehe…. :sete_013:

    Side note the alliums are a great feature. I save them and dry the seed heads, save the seeds and the spray paint the huge round seed heads for various applications. Dried arrangements , flower shows and x-mas ornaments wreaths…They last forever…

    Cheers Pac. Glad you like my bloomers— hahaha, you do have a good feeling for humour.
    I have seen dried allium heads in arrangements here and there. They really are a good element.

    Perfection! Such beautiful flowers.

    I know what you mean about being too tired to post.

    “Results And Roses” by Edgar A. Guest
    The man who wants a garden fair,
    Or small or very big,
    With flowers growing here and there,
    Must bend his back and dig.

    The things are mighty few on earth
    That wishes can attain.
    Whate’er we want of any worth
    We’ve got to work to gain.

    It matters not what goal you seek
    Its secret here reposes:
    You’ve got to dig from week to week
    To get Results or Roses.

    Poem very true… as most of us will attest, passion is driving the creative soul to work for the beauty, we so much appreciate. Nature has a spell on me and my garden. Can’t kick it no matter how my joints scream and rebel. As Daniel’s poem expressed the vision only is achieved by the work we put in our gardens . As the saying goes,
    “ You can bury any number of headaches in the garden.”

    Daniel that is a perfect gardening poem which can also speak to life, itself. Cheers for that bit of verse.

    Good quote, Pac.
