Hot Colours in the Garden

My mosiac this week is a chance to show off a couple of plants that give a good show and bright colours in the garden.   The Coreopsis is drought tolerant and because they self seed I get a good large clump of them. They can be cut right back and will rebloom later on.  The other is the Gaillardia another drought tolerant and self seeder.  They just say happy happy happy in the garden.  My wild rose is prolific this year.  Another bright flower is the Johnson's Blue Geranium in the garden.  Its iridescence colour is striking.   I hope you like them.   More mosiacs of splendor can be found at Mary's DearLittleRedHouse.  Join us there. 

Happy Gardening Week.  Valerie

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday
