Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm back in my garden.
I collected seed heads from the french marigolds in the garden and put a couple of dozen in the empty pots that had once held bulbs. Here you can see three lovely healthy plants developing. Buds, but no flowers yet.
in the other pot, only one seed grew and has now flowered beautifully. I put more seeds in there and about eight of them have now sprouted the first two leaves. So more flowers are on the way.
out in the garden the rest continue to flower and I am still collecting seed heads.
I've filled half an envelope with seeds now and will start them in pots at the first sign of spring.
I like the colour mix available in the dwarf French marigolds.
red, gold and ruffled. What more could you want?
pretty maids all in a row.
see the chewed petals? That caterpillar must have had a sweet appetiser before he moved on to my mint.
I've since been to the garden centre at Bunnings and bought more marigolds, there's a lovely red and yellow striped one, but I haven't photographed it yet.
the mint is beginning to recover, but I've bought another plant and put it in the same pot.
Hopefully the caterpillars won't find it until it is better established.
Now, for fishducky, a couple of my favourite T-shirts.
well of course it is!
this one speaks for itself. (*~*)
