Backyard flowers 2021


The very first of my sunflowers. I didn't even have to plant this one. A good bunch of them came up on their own. 

This is a dusty miller that has gone to seed/flower. Beautiful. 
Grows wild in my yard because I don't cut them back too often. 
I want to see their beautiful flowers. 

Orange Iris, comes up every year. 

This is a Pomegranate blossom. I don't know how I did this but the photo looks almost fake. I assure you it was the angle on the sun. Beautiful peach color. Soon they will turn into fruit. 

My nasturtiums are not doing well this year. 

The hot pink oleanders 

These are actually red oleanders. 

My sisters favorite flower - Gerbera Daisies

Even the fish are waiting for their water lily to bloom. 
We've had one bloom already. 

A dusty miller without flower. I love to place them around the garden for a different color. They are beautiful year-round. 

My spent lavender - I didn't get out there soon enough to harvest them. 

They'll bloom at least once more. 


  1. I don't think I have ever seen a Dusty Miller, only heard about them. Your pommegranite blossom is gorgeous!! Looks like a rose. I didn't even know that pomegranites have blossoms. What a beautiful variety of flowers you have!!

  2. I have never seen a dusty miller bloom. Here, in upstate New York, they are annuals. Oleander is one of many flowers I like but can't grow here because, again, they aren't hardy. Our sunflowers won't bloom for a month or more so I enjoyed seeing yours, just opening up. That pomegranite blossom is stunning!

  3. Beautiful flowers! Gerbera Daisies are my daughters favorite fowers too!
