Trumpets

Today is Today's Flowers.

This is one of the plants I planted in my garden in Quakers Hill. And multitude of pesky snails loved to take residence around the yard with successive rainfall inducing growth of their numbers. I collected them, crushed them and put them back to the soil as organic fertilizer. 'Want not, waste not.'

Despite the onslaught of the snails, the blooms kept coming pretty generous.

Amazingly, the ones I planted in my present area did not bear flowers. But that is the least of my worry at the moment.

Trumpets grow in cold places, unfortunately we can't them here but there a plenty of them in the countryside which I'm always delighted to look at.

I'm back Bonnie as I saw your comment on my blog. Thank you my friend! I don't know too many flowers other than the usual ones that I see, but if I can take a picture of a marker when I take the actual photo, then it helps me to remember to identify them when I share. Thank goodness for digital photography :)

I would also like to say Happy First Anniversary to your beautiful daughter and her husband, and congratulations to you also. What a happy day this is.
