With the snow finally melted, I cleaned up my yard and put in the first round of plants. I am enjoying these colorful violas while getting some garden exercise and nature therapy at home.
Here are some flowers in my garden. Clockwise: Shasta Daisy, yellow Osteospermum, Firewheel Blanket flower, Echinacea with purple Veronica flowers in background.
Here are some hardy flowers in my garden right now. It is still too early here in northern Arizona to plant everything I would like, especially considering we got some snow this week. I took these photos a few days before the snowfall. They are (clockwise) Osteospermum, Marigold, Viola, and Spanish Lavender.
Here is a Hollyhock that caught my attention recently, as it was so striking. HOLLYHOCK
