from 2007's zinnia's,
which were also volunteers,
from 2006's flower seeds that my daughter and I planted.
My very first Spider Lily Bloom.
Gorgeous surrounded by the delicate artemesia blooms. I mean really... Just look at how incredibly beautiful.
I found a tiny clump of these and brought them home with me, about 2 summers ago.
I separated all the little bulbs and planted them along the front border of my flower bed. The foliage died back early this summer. Then, seemingly overnight, the naked stems emerged, supporting these breath-taking beauties.
And now I have a row of about 20 of these along the front of my flower bed.
I just want to poke my fingers in there and shake it.
These little babies always bring a smile to my face.
I find gardening so theraputic, and so fulfilling.
Do you love gardening? I'd love to see your flowers.
