Here are some photos of my flowers that are currently in bloom. As I figure out the names of them....I'll add them. Please feel free to tell me the name if you know.

~ baby buds ~
These are at the end of their bloom for this year. These have doubled in size in just one year.
not the best pic here...but I wanted to show you how much they multiplied in one year. Don't look at my weeds. I'm going to get a better picture.
This flower has been split up about 4 times now. Later in the summer it will have some beautiful flowers. I will take a pic and post it under the summer posting.
Now, I know this doesn't look much like anything right now, but I ASSURE YOU.....when you stay tuned for the summer postings you will be so surprised of the outcome!
This will have HUGE, MAMOUTH, GIGUNDOUS(if thats such a word) red flowers. The size of elephant ears... I kid you not!! I don't know the technical name for them...so if you know...leave me a comment. This plant doubles in size every year. It can grow to about 5 feet tall. I have this since July 2007. I planted it in September of that year and I didn't think it was going to live. The next year...BAM!...couldn't believe my eyes how beautiful it was. I HIGHLY recommend getting this plant. So stay tune at a later date to see what it will look like. You will NOT be disappointed. I PROMISE!!
again, this one doesn't look like much either but I wanted to share with you the before and after pics. Last year for my birthday I got an arched trellis. I wanted a climbing flower to go with it. I bought one for each side. I was excited to see new growth on it. So that was another purpose for this picture. Now I did mention I bought one for each side...well, the other one doesn't look so hot..so I'm just going to be patient and see what the sun and rain will do for me. I wonder how long it will take to get my first flower. The package shows white flowers...I guess we'll see. How long do you think? Anyone??
ok, whats up with this pic? well, you have to understand something....my son is a fanatic about tomatos. So every year for his birthday, grandma gets him a plant and he gets to take care of it and water all summer long and reap the benefits! Now, not a bad idea huh??
