Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Time for Phlox

The phlox is blooming! Above in the perennial garden and below the original plant next to the pond which came from a friend.

This bee was still asleep as I photographed the blossoms.

A closeup of Natascha phlox. See its striped blossoms?

Cathy in MN asked to see my finished project: the mosaic stepping stone.

And finally the hibiscus is producing saucer sized blooms.

Very pretty! What a cute candy-striped one!

My phlox is just starting to bud nicely here in Ontario. I am planning a phlox blog in the next couple of weeks. We can compare colours and varieties.

Enjoy your phlox.
