Flowers Around My Yarnell Home

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Petunias and roses in this rock planter all survived the fire -- and they thrived!

Mexican Primroses do well, and look even better with the soot from the fire!

We were shocked when this one came back to life during the summer!

Just wild daisies, but how beautiful -- can't think of them as "weeds."

These we planted from seed we had gathered from wild flowers, sorry I don't know the name but a week after this was taken, many more blooms were a blaze of color.

This one came back too, and is even more beautiful than when we first got it.

More of the wild daisies, they come in either white or lavender, they look excellent against the rocks where they grow.

Thank you for taking a look at what survived the fire. I'll post again when we get some landscaping done.

    wow, very impressive. Having flowers like this would involve a lot of hard work here for sure. Your place will be really spectacular when all of your gardening can be done when the HOUSE is done. emoticon
