The best laid plans

don't end up as planned. 2 or 3 years ago I decided to tiller up the prettiest grass spot we had growing and make a flower garden. I planned it out using markers, stepping stones, bricks, so I would know what was where. I planned it according to colors (so they would compliment each other), height, and bloom time. Mother nature does whatever she wants. My compliementing sections aren't so complementing now. It's pretty, but the blues aren't necessarily with the whites and so on. Wind and birds and natural reseeding have done away with my plans and made a beautiful flower garden without my organization. It seems people are not that necessary after all.

Can you send your wind and birds over here? Mine need a lesson in design lol. I have alittle bit here and a little bit there and it looks disorganized and messing. But it's green so I'm happy.

[Big Grin] Don't you just get a kick out of the way things turn out?

I have random sunflowers coming up in all kinds of areas in the yard.

I'd love to see a picture Sheri!

I didn't plant these pretty, sweet smelling petunias.

I'll take another picture tomorrow. Now it's full of black eyed susans. I love all these flowers but they aren't arranged as I had planned.

I think maybe I should post my pictures in the Blooming Fine section.

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
