A Surprise In My Inbox….Flowers!

From time to time, I receive emails from readers of my blog who ask me a gardening question or two.  Well, I love talking about plants and helping people with their gardens, so it works out well.

Earlier this week, I was so surprised to find an email from a reader who had sent me pictures of flowers growing in their garden.

To be honest, I was touched that someone would want to share with me pictures of their garden.

I love to garden, obviously…..but it is so nice to get a view of what is happening in other people’s gardens.

The beautiful flowers that I am privileged to show you are from the garden of Frank & Lynda who reside in Northeast Mesa, which is a suburb of Phoenix.

Alyssum, Geranium and Nasturtium

Frank was kind enough to let me show you all their beautiful flowers.  As he put it, his wife has the ‘green thumb’ and he is the ‘waterboy’.

Frank & Lynda, thank you for allowing me to share some of your beautiful flowers.

**If any of you would like to show me what is growing in your garden, please feel free to send me an email with a picture.  I would love to post photos of what you are growing, so that other people can enjoy them as well.

Have a great day!

    Dear Noelle, How very generous of you to share Frank and Lynda's pictures with us all. This is, indeed, in the true spirit of a blogging community. Certainly their pictures are most striking and do create a very real impact.

    Very beautiful flowers! Seems their Green thumb and water boy combination fits quite nicely to produce such beautiful flowers! Love the hot color of snapdragon, and the leave of Nasturtium! Thanks Frank and Lynda to share! Thanks for you to post here for all of us to see the beauty!

    What a sweet email to receive, Noelle! It couldn't happen to a nicer plant-lover. 🙂

    Loved that shot with the scarlet flower in the cherub's palm.
