Flowers I've Grown

Updated on January 27, 2015

Photos of Flowers - Grown In My Garden

I have recently started to garden more around my house and have actually grown some really awesome flowers!

Gardening is a great escape for me, and I love that I can make something so beautiful grow from just a seed.

I've taken pictures of many of them, and want to share them with the world. I hope that you enjoy my photos, and this lens in general!

Potted Plants

Having a variety of potted plants in interesting pots is a great way to change up your landscaping without too much effort.

You can move them around based on the weather, sun, or even just for looks if you're having company.

I got these from a nursery at the end of their season, and somehow they lasted the next year too! They have awesome camouflage leaves.
