Pictures from my garden

This is my first blog. Not sure how it's going to turn out, but here goes. To start with I just want to post a few pictures of my garden over the last couple of years.
This is a Calla Lily that I leave in the ground all year long. It's not supposed to hardy up here in the north but always comes up in the spring.

These are the Monkey flowers that I start from seed and plant in hanging baskets. They like shade and moist soil. They don't like really hot weather and will get leggy so you have to trim them.

These are Stargazer lillies that smell sooooo good. Love these.

These are "Foxy" foxgloves that I start from seed. If started early enough they will bloom the first year. Otherwise, they grow foliage the first year and flower the second.
