I finally got all my pics up loaded and organized and thought I'd share. I've divided into 2 albums so you can see how my garden changed this year. As some of you know this was my first year of outdoor gardening and I thought I did all right. I've definately learned a lot for next year.

Very pretty Cheryl. You'll be amazed at how fast those bulbs and plants will multiply.

You did a great job this year, Cheryl! You grew many pretty things, too. Isn't it amazing how much can be learned in a short period of time?

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

It is amazing how much is learned in a short period of time. I keep having to remind myself that I haven't been doing this for years because that's what it feels like.

Thanks Diane. I got lucky with the cosmo. I wasn't even looking for one when I was at the nursery and it was my lucky day because they had a whole bunch of them and I couldn't resist. That was a long sentence huh?

I hear Ya Cheryl.. Yesterday I stopped by the nursery because I hadn't been there in a couple of months,, and I found Ebony Night Black Mondo,,, Bill gave me a clump of it when I was in Cedar Hill,, and when I got back I called every nursery in my immediate area,( I want to use it to border a White rock sitting area,,) And Noone has it , Never gets it and probably won't get it,, was all the answers I got,, ANYWAYYYYYYYY When I was looking around,, I went back to the tree area (Not even thinking about the Mondo I figured I have to wait until this clump I did have >to spread boohoo ) I couldn't believe shock I saw 3-1 gallon sizes of the Black Mondo grin ,, and YEP I grabbed them up ,, notme lol lol they also had the green and varigated, I had told them I had called them a few weeks ago yadda yadda,, And I guess they had gotten the Mondos in After I called,, She said, it wasn't ordered and was a fluke it was even there tho it wasn't selling,, so they marked it down to 50% .. I still had a coupon 10$ off 30$ purchase or more,, so I got Landscapers Mulch,, and some mushroom compost, super thrive and 3 gallons of Black mondo , and something for the person I will get in the Gift swap notme .. all for 24$ Good Deal! grin

So I guess I said all that just to let you know I can't resist either,,,, When It's There ~ GET IT,,~ Might not have another chance!! lol lol

That chocolate cosmos is beautiful and so is that poppy. Your Willies are cute looking at the flowers in your garden.
