(Thankful) Thursday in the Garden

The Asters are native plants and do very well here. We even have some growing wild.

We love wildflowers and look forward to see them blooming again soon.

Spring and Fall are our best time for flowers, but we do have things blooming all year. Even in the winter.

We think this is yarrow but we are not sure.

Whirling Butterflies, it is a native plant, but Mommy bought it at a nursery to plant.

A semi-tropical plant that is blooming happily in the greenhouse.

Our cuphea, the frost got it so we are hoping it is able to come back. If not we will have to buy some more.

The hydrangeas enjoyed our extremely wet summer, they don't usually do very well in this location. We are thankful for our lovely garden and for the greenhouse that keeps our tropicals safe in the winter and most of all we are thankful it is almost Spring. ~ATCAD
