I actually like my front flower bed now that the giant sunflower is gone. Everything is in full bloom and looks great. Just a warning - There are a lot of pictures.
|I grew these marigolds from seed I collected last year. Dallas LOVES marigolds so I plant more than I should every year. This is only two plants.|
|Not the best picture but here are some of my Zinnias I grew from seed, along with Marigolds, Petunias, Russian Sage, Sweet Potato Vines, and one of my baby Ficus tree in the pot.|
|Cosmos and another view of my Sweet Potato. It is filling in the bare spots very quickly. I think it will become one of my regular plants for the front bed.|
|The bird bath that was hidden by the giant sunflower.|
|The other side of the bird bath. This is probably one of my favorite flowers. My Dahlia has moved three times with me and continues to look better every year.|
I don't want to see the ground in my flower beds. I love the way it looks when the plants are mixed together and over flowing the sides of the bed. Unfortunately I have to leave a walking path through this bed. It is too big to work in without it. Maybe I will get used to it but I doubt it.
