The garden looks good. When will the lupins come out? Those ar my favourite.


I love your Rafflesia...my nine year old son is really fascinated with all things big and smelly. He had shown me a picture of it recently, so I had to call him over to share this post. The putrescine were his favorite part! I love your perennials
...anenome...primrose... your photos make me feel like I could reach out and touch/smell them. Your rhododendrons are a bit further along then mine and I forgot how much I love those first glimpses of fuschia.


I always learn something new when I visit your blog :o) Thanks!! What kind of flower is that inside the cabbage looking thing? Have a great weekend!! xox, Linnea

Wow Margie!
I am absolutely fascinated with Miss Raflessia! This flower has such an amazing personality (including the smell). Imagine that some of them could be as tall as I am (which is not a lot for a human being but it is really A LOT for a flower). I loved the article about it in the link and the fact that this flower has no sex, no leaves or roots... it is just a wonderful natural curiosity. I would love to see this flower in person one day. I don't think that I have a vase for a flower like Raflessia but if I ever see her in person I will take lots of pictures.
Your drawing is so cute! I can see it as an embroidery pattern. On the other hand the photos of the other flowers are sooo amazing, specially the pink and white one with many petals, what a wonderful garden you have!

Today at church they had the largest Amarilla's. I think that's what they are called. Part of the lily family I think! They were huge and red!


that one of the irises and forget-me-nots is GORGEOUS. i am also wondering if that last flower is related to the artichoke.
