I'd like to tell you I had something to do with this lupine being so beautiful, alas it is all about God....well and Art the gardener, and a touch of fertilizer. The color is so inviting, and I'm not even a fan of pink. Imagine if I were!
I glanced out the window and saw the raindrops from a passing downpour hanging and sparkling on the leaves of the bleeding heart. I couldn't resist.
God, Art, and fertilizer again....and the mighty majesty of the peony. Like a butterfly, the peony's color passes so quickly, because it is so brilliant and magical.
OK...this one has nothing to do with Art or fertilizer....it's all God. I'd like to say it was me, but really I didn't do anything except put them in the ground 4 years ago. I am not a gardener. I stick to flowers and plants that will come back year after year, no matter what. I hope these are making my neighbors think I know what I'm doing....because they're kind of making me think that. Way to go self!
