Garden Blooms, Bugs and Buds

Happy Little Zinnias!

The first open blossom of the Chinese Forget-me-nots!

More Zinnias and a Bug Visitor!

Dahlias Budding

Tobacco (Or as my mother prefers, nicotiana)

Here are a couple other shots of the Hydrangea for my friend Athena!
Note that it is not just blue, one side is primarily blue and the other is pinkish lavender.
It is very pretty!(and having a growth spurt!)

Oh, thank you for the additional hydrangea shots! :) I had a neighbor who had a multicolored bush-- I always looked forward to it blooming every year.

And I love zinnias! Have you ever tried Redbud Farms for additional seeds? I've used them for years-- they have top quality and a lot of varieties.

I got the zinnia seeds from Harris Seeds this year but I'll have to check out Redbud Farms(I love having many gardening resources). I was impressed with the price and quality of Harris. They give you a good amount of seeds for the price and also have very good customer service. I also like Select Seeds for heirloom seeds (the sweetpeas, chinese forget me nots, Calendula and tobacco were all from Select Seeds).

I may have to take a walk down to my neighbors, they have an all blue hydrangea in their front yard.:o) It's very pretty. By the way love, your little charms!
