What's Blooming At The B Farm


Once upon a time, someone made some pretty flowerbeds at the farm. It's been fun to see what pops up each year. These plants are survivors - from drought, deer, and neglect. But what survivors!

The yarrow always delights:

The lantana sprawls out of bounds each summer and needs to be trimmed back. Butterflies love it.

Irises in a rainbow of colors:


There are cannas and a gardenia bush too - soon to be blooming.

And then there's the few things I have planted. A cute mini rose sent to me from one of my first blogging buddies. And lots of mint:

A red amaryllis

And an oak leaf hydrangea given to me by my mother-in-law.

Out in the pastures, I can always find something blooming or in seed:

Red clover:

Spiderwort:

Woolywhites:

Yellow daisy type flower...I don't know the variety:

Dandelion seeds:


Tiny, tiny seeds that seem to sparkle in the morning light:

Then the dewberries are starting to ripen. Yum, I can taste the pie now...so good!


 I can't wait to be there full-time and really cultivate the flowerbeds. I have so many plans and things I want to plant. It's going to be great!

Hugs,
Cecilia
