Flowers for the Soul


Rainy day. The Busy Lizzy Carousel F1 plant has given me another flower. The last few flower buds that were developing pink flowers dropped off before opening. I am quite taken with these flowers now, double blooms. I will try in the new house (Fingers crossed) to grow these again.
Autumn is a reflective time, to remember what worked and what did not. When its pouring with rain the previous blog photos can inspire your memory.
The Daylight hours here are shorter, with the Sun rising later, and setting earlier. The two photos were taken about three hours apart. I sprung from bed at 6am like a switch had been turned on. All that sleep yesterday has repaired my tired body!
Sleep for the body, flowers for the Soul and mind. I am proud of my one plant that survived from the 12 seeds I planted :)
If one flowers then it eases the pain of so many plants keeling over. There is always next year..
I like the Rain splattered windowsill.Its hard to describe rain in photos!

Thanks Claire.The thrill of growing a flowering plant from seed is something all gardeners can relate to.The flowers ease all the mishaps and disasters that have gone before.This was one plant out of all the seeds I planted :)
