Flower Garden Pictures Six

One of the most unusual flower in our yard are Gladiolus. Mainly, because of color.

The hangup is the height. They get rather tall and sometimes grow at an angle and are hard to stake up.

The Hydrangea shown here is multi-colored. Mainly, because of soil content.

The English Roses are very robust and grow like mad...they require a lot of care but are beautiful.

Dahlias are my favorite! They are really diverse and require little care.

A great and recommended book from Amazon: Flowers By Carolyne Roehm  (With a gardener’s understanding and a an elegant eye, the author shows us the flowers she has cultivated for decades in and around her historic Connecticut home. While alternating dramatic close-ups with portraits of lovely arrangements and sweeping views of her land, Roehm writes with wit, emotion, and affection of what flowers have meant to her, as well as of the joys and travails of the committed gardener’s life.)
