This is our “new” smaller flower garden. All that green grass in the background use to be part of the flower garden too. This past winter we decided to downsize the garden and I’m very happy we did. Although it was beautiful having a large flower garden, it took a lot of upkeep to maintain it. There is a mix of perennials and annuals in the garden, including my favorite pinks that line the walkway.
Below are some close-ups of a few of the flowers in this garden.
The garden below is in our backyard. Usually I plant veggies in these raised beds, but I decided to fill it with flowers instead. There is a mix of sunflowers, zinnias, and sweet peas.
The other day when I was taking some pictures of the Echinacea, I had a few visitors that decided to “photobomb” my pictures…lol!
If you look closely at the photo below you will see two bumblebees and a butterfly, all sharing the sweet nectar from the same flower!
And finally, some photos of the little bouquets that are filling the house!
