I WANT MYGARDEN TO GROW: BLUE MONDAY: LOVE IS...


A little blue flax for Blue Monday!  Make sure you visit Sally and see and share some blues! I am hoping some of these pretty little flowers spring up in my planters on my front porch! When I am not so tired, I will snap a few photos of the pretty dirt! LOL!
I like these Calendula flowers too. We have no garden budget but I have lots of seeds so I am trying my luck!
Zinnias! I am learning lot about flowers as I try to prepare a little garden for a colorful summer.
Cosmos remind me of little daisies  Perhaps I will have some growing in my yard.
When I was a little girl my Auntie Ang loved these Black Eyed Susan's. So I am planting some and hope they take in her memory. She and my Uncle Louie were rose gardeners and "Oh My Goodness"  their garden was fantastic. They worked in it every single day and it was amazing!
Pretty blue Forget-Me-Nots! I have planted these in memory of Shannon, the little girl who passed away at age 4 from a rare brain cancer. She is the little girl we teamed up and sent a "Memory Quilt" to her family after her untimely deth. The family asked us to plant these in her memory. I will never forget Shannon. Suzanne and Sue were the ladies who put the quilt together and finished it for the family. I will never forget the quilt and all the wonderful people who made quilt squares. It was a beautiful project and I am so prouid that I was part of it!

I have been planting perennial flowers in my garden Anne, in hope they will take and re-bloom every summer. I get many deer and rabbits so it is a challenge to find ones they won't eat.

Your "Forget Me Not" flowers are beautiful and a wonderful tribute to a sweet little girl.

Such pretty flowers, especially the ones in memory of Shannon and your aunt. I've thought about just pitching a wild flower mix out in the yard and see what happens!

Gorgeous flowers --and I love blue flowers. We grow Periwinkle (Vinca Minor) as a ground cover --and they bloom little blue flowers in early spring. SO pretty...

Love your Forget-me-Nots.. Gorgeous blue color.
Hugs,
