Since the beginning of Spring, I have noticed an explosion of flower images in a large number of blogs that I frequent. I bow my head in shame as I present to you more flowers of the fabric kind. Don't get me wrong, I love fresh flowers. The problem is that I am not an avid gardener. In fact, I enjoy gardening less and less as the years go by.
When we first purchased our home, I planted many trees, shrubs, and flowers. At one time a huge part of the garden consisted of lavender agapanthus which profusely bloomed throughout the year. It often looked like a sea of lavender in my front yard. I was constantly asked by my neighbor about how I got them to bloom so much while she struggled to keep her agapanthus alive. I could never answer her because my garden bloomed with little help from me.
Several years ago we hired a landscaping company to come in and redo our yard. It soon became a yard of rocks, grass and very few plants. The belief was that I could at least manage something simple. Unfortunately, I also neglect my little patch of plantings too.
Here is a picture of my front yard. A garden gate now fills the hole in the wall. Take notice of the sparse plantings.
So, if you've come to my blog expecting to see fresh blooms this Spring, you have come to the wrong place. The only images that I can offer you are of fabric flowers. I hope they make you happy just the same.
Have a fabulous Monday!
