My year in flowers

I’m aware that most of my posts have about breast cancer – my feelings and recovery, as well as my recent hip replacement surgery.

So I thought that it was about time that I featured my flowers as they were originally going to be an equal part of this blog. This is going to be a mainly pictorial post, showing my seedlings and flowers throughout this year.

Growing flowers has been so important to my recovery. They add so much beauty to my life and I’d like to share them with you.

Winter is dormancy & gathering strength.

Spring is the season for new beginnings & growth.

Such colours

Autumn, vibrancy continues before mellowness takes over

 

And finally, my absolute favourites – Dahlias
