Hey Toots, you got on here before I finished - LOL. Yes, those are mophead poppy seeds originally from Blissie, way back when.

Wow! And look at that amaryllis!!! Where'd that come from? Do you leave it there all year?
Do you have it in the ground behind the rock? Is that a rock?

Those red mopheads are really cool--like something out of a Dr. Suess book. Also I've never seen the blue flowers on the last pic either.

Thanks ladies.

Nance, the amaryllis are winter hardy here. The rock is what's left of a small fountain I had years ago. The bottom finally fell apart, so I saved the "waterfall", put in on the ground and planted angelina sedum in the "cups".

Fluff- the mopheads are really cool. Love in a Mist is a reseeding annual & more like a weed here. I bet you've seen seeds for Nigella. Love in a Mist is the common name. They come in blue and white. I toss them all the time, but leave a few to reseed.

Wow, what gorgeous flowers. I am so jealous of your yard, girlfriend.

I hope mine is doing okay at home, pitiful thing that it is. Its always a surprise when we turn the corner and see what the yard looks like after a few weeks away.

Just beautiful!

Could you save me some seeds of the mop heads? I'd love to try them down here.
I got some Ca. poppies to bloom one year, but the birds ate all the seeds so they didn't come back the following year.

WOW, your flowers are just gorgeous!!! I love Clematis & Roses, but everything is blooming just beautifully (knock wood!). Do you ever get any 'pests'. The last couple of years I noticed too late that some flowers were inundated with Aphids!! Do you spray with the insecticidal soap ever? What is your secret?
(I have a small space with lots of bugs)
Anyway, love your Cottage Garden!

Love all the photos. The Nigella flowers & pink iris are so pretty together. I planted Bachelor Button seeds up in Kansas before we returned to Houston last week. Never planted them before & hope the birdies haven't gobbled them up already. Will know when we get back up there in a few weeks I guess.

I have lurked on the hgtv boards for a while now. I was going through picture envy because all I ever saw was the dreaded red x and no pictures. I didn't know why until someone else had the same problem and was told you had to be registered to see them. So I registered and this is my very first post. I so love all of your pictures. Your yards are all so beautiful. Now I'm going through garden envy. Thanks so much to all of you for sharing your beautiful pictures.

thanks everyone.

SSTR - I hope your bachelor buttons do well for you.

Toots, made a note, now I need to go mark the blue Nigella - Wink

Muddy, I see you posted...girl you amaze me...your gardens are gorgeous. I was happy to see your purpleness!!

Jackie, I know you need some down time..the porch is always welcome.

Wavy - I'm sure I have the usual pests..but I don't spray or poison or anything...I have been known to drown Jap beetles in soapy water. Smile Otherwise, it is what it is. This is because I also grow fennel, dill & parsley for the butterfly cats in some of those beds, and I don't want any pesticides around those plants.

You have beautiful flowers. I love when you all post pics of your gardens because there are plants and flowers from different parts of the country that I don't usually see around here.
