  1. What a great slideshow! I had go through a few time to pic my faves but I must say the sunflowers shots are what gets me everytime! I love the subtle color of those, what kind are they?

    OK…I must, must know about the ‘bat plant’ I have never hear of it and I think it is too cool!

    Wonderful post…seriously cool stuff! Kim

    • Thanks so much Kim! The Sunflower seeds were from a Burpee Summer Sunflower Cutting Mix packet that we won from Amy at Get Busy Gardening. The lighter two are Vanilla Ice & Jade Hybrid-lovely & so many blooms on each. The bat plant is just marvelous. The wonders God creates in the gardens…The name on the tag says “Cuphea Llavea” Bat Faced Cuphea.

    ooooh! The slide show feature is SO AWESOME!
    My favorite is the sunflower, but I love the zinnia and the realness of the raspberries.
    The quote: I know I’ve heard it, where is it from?

    Great photos! I am definitely intrigued by the bat plant 🙂 And I loved your title for “first blush” that’s kind of how I think of it, too

    What a great idea to put them into a slide show.

    I have to ask. Winter sown hibiscus? That just blows my mind. You must be just a tad warmer than a zone 3, LOL!
