    A few flower foto's that my Bride took:

    the lottie entrance-- our unassuming gate.

    Just inside the gate.

    Joe Pye and his lemon Helianthis 'Lemon Queen'.

    She went around here and there taking piccies with the tablet, saying how lovely everything was looking. The flowers blooming now are indeed lovely, the Clematis terniflora is also beginning to bloom now. I like its fragrance.
    Hope that you folks enjoy the flowers.

    I love the cupcake crosmea (it really does look like a paper cupcake holder) and the unassuming garden gate with the retired tool handle!

    Thank you S-H.

    CAYU-- Yes, those flowers are so charming. When I got them as small plantlets, I had never heard of them and I wasn't sure if they would work well. I am best pleased with them. That garden gate and the retired tool handle. Yeah meid, one is loath to throw things away, and it has a certain charm I think. Typical architecture for a lottie.

    Looking good Sjoerd! The color combination of Joe Pye and Lemon Girl is stunning!
    I love the Cosmos too ... I haven't seen that variety here.

    Thanks so much Netty.
    That variety of cosmea is new for me as well. I just took a chance with it and was well chuffed.
