But when I go out to fill the bird feeder first thing in the morning and the early sun hits this pale beauty by the steps, I think, well, just a few pictures...
This one has a lovely, lemony fragrance that keeps me hanging around, snapping yet another picture as the sun illuminates her curves.
And then I go to the garden, to do a little weeding and mulching before the day heats up, and there's this exuberant clump, demanding to have their pictures taken too.
I don't keep records of what I plant ( well, I used to but I misplaced them) but if memory serves, I think this beauty is "Dolly Parton."
A perfect name for this lovely, cheerful, slightly over-the-top flower!
Tiny little pink and yellow faces that put me in mind of Audrey Jr. in 'The Little Shop of Horrors.'
(John and I saw the original in the early Sixties- long before it attained cult status-- as the second half of a double feature at the drive in. It was, I think, a defining moment in our lives.)
