Planting some flowers was high on the priority list of things we wanted to do first. Since we know NOTHING about flowers and gardening, this year is going to be a major learning experience.


Here are the flowers we are "testing" this year:


Alyssum: 
Small little white and deep purple flowers, Fragrant, Low Spreading plant. This is ideal for garden's edge or in containers. They need sun or part sun. They grow 3-4" Tall. 



Nicotiana:

Cosmos:
These are vibrant pink and white mix, large multi colored flowers. Used for backgrounds, and border. They need sun or part sun. They grow 36-48" tall. They are also a lot of fun to
photograph. They seem to have their own personalities.
