Wild flower garden.

Wild-flower garden.

I have a wild-flower garden.  It certainly isn’t a typical wild-flower garden.  Mainly that’s because its location is in the middle of my front yard.  Yeah, I know, that is weird.  I really enjoyed the flowers, but not the wild garden look!  I had just prepared this center bed and was still figuring out what to plant in it when a friend asked me if I’d like some wild-flower seeds.   It was as simple as that!  I thought I’d give it a go for a season and see how it looked.

Some of the flowers have been so pretty!  I love the orange wild poppies.

For a season it has been fun seeing what would grow and bloom.  There were a couple of cute surprises!

So the above photo is really what the wild-flower garden tends to look like: A mess!  I do like my poppies and daisies by the back of my wall. They certainly are anything but neat and tidy. But they are at the back!  I’m afraid this garden is too central to be so messy for me.

Well it definitely was fun having such lovely flowers, especially to photograph!

I love poppies in the evening sunlight!

Another learning experience for me!  But I am delighted to have had the chance to photograph such beauties.  I hope you’ve enjoyed them too.
