Garden Year

I started at Christmas, so around the 25th of each month, I will record what is flowering in our garden. The macros I love ... Wildflower Wednesdays. I will walk around the garden. The bigger picture. Looking at our wildflowers, or commonorgarden / exotic / foreign / alien plants.

Month by month follows, or a flying visit with one photo for each month.
