Today's Flowers #51

For Today's Flowers, hosted by Luiz, Denise, Laerte & Valkyrien, I am featuring blooms of my new plants this summer.

Dahlia


The following are Hollyhocks from seeds that I picked up at a friend's garden two summers ago. This is their first time to bloom.






Crazy Daisy, given to me by a friend. I love its feathery and quilled petals.


Cosmos, from seeds that I harvested from a friend's garden.





Daylily that escaped the deer. ;)

hi nance,

ang ganda ng mga flowers mo, believe talaga ako sa hands mo....of course sa iyo.
ganda ng mga halaman mo, healthy na healthy.

akala ko pulot mo sa dinadaanan mo, pulot mo ang mga seeds or branches.

ganoon din si bernie, pag nakita cya, pulot din cya tapos itanim nya sa paso, mabuhay........kung ako patay cya.

i like greens very much, pero sila ang ayaw sa akin.......lol

thanks sa compliments sa pics-pics ko ha?
thank you, thank you........."mibukad ang kiyos ko"......heheheheh

bitaw, hindi kami nag-fishing doon, pasyal lang, pero pwede mag-fishing when you have a license, Canoeing, swimming, da-ting din....lol

may bayad, mura lang 3psos for adult and 2psos for kids.

malapit lang kami sa mga lakes, dito sa town namin, pero beach, ang layo, mga 6-8hrs to drive para maka kita ng Sea.


Isda, oo nga naubos ni bernie, gusto nya magdala kami, ay naku ang layo sa lugar na yon, sabi ko masira, sayang lang.
ang init pa ng weather last Friday.....

ngayon, nandito lang kami sa bahay, supposed to be we plan to have a drive in Mosel....mga 1-2hrs to drive, depende sa traffic.
kaya umulan ngayon, so stay at home nalang.
Hope bukas maganda ang weather para maka alis naman.

bernie has 3 wks vcation, kaya panay ang hiking.

happy sunday

Wonderful selection of flowers - hollyhocks, lilies and cosmos! I haven't grown cosmos in a while, but they remind me of my mother, who grew them one year a long time ago in front of my childhood home.
