Purple Flowers |My Purple Flower Garden
Photos and Pictures of my Purple Flower Garden
I love the color purple, and I love Purple flowers. I had always wanted a white house, and a purple garden, and sure enough, as time has went on my house is indeed white, and surrounded by beautiful slate gravel and in summer blooming with purple flowers. If you love these coloured flowers then collected on this page are photos from my very own flower garden and where possible resources for you to learn more about these gorgeous flowers.
....One day my British Bulldog Puppy, Belle decided she really loved my purple flowers too! and has now eaten its way through 4 clematis (trellis as well) lavender, and an array of gorgeous purple flowers :( All I have left is a very bare back garden. Luckily I love taking pictures of flowers and created beautiful unique cards and pictures of them, so we can still enjoy the blooms. And of course I share them with you.
This page is dedicated to what was my beautiful purple flower garden I had created, and a celebration and discovering what is growing in my new Garden. I share with you the beautiful pictures I managed to take of the purple blooms and bringing you new flower pictures from my new garden, and what I am growing to create a new beautiful flower garden.
I cant wait for the first full year of being in our new home and seeing what springs up into the garden.
And yes the dog is banned from the front garden.

Gardening Jobs in April
Getting Ready For Summer
Living in Scotland April is just about as early as you can get for starting seeds, and having them outside, as it is still very cold at nights and frosty in the mornings.
I start to mow the lawn once a week from beginning of April onwards, stating at quite a high setting this helps to get the grass growing at an even pace. I have lovely little snowdrops on my front lawn that were accidentally planted there last year, by me weeding the border and forgetting to lift the bulbs, but sprinkled within the grass they were beautiful. It was sad to see them go with the first cut of the season.
I have now put outside into the greenhouse all the seeds I started in inside.
Morning Glory, Sweet Peas, Ostrich Feathers, and Sun flowers
My top tip for when you are planting seeds, is I mark the name of my seeds on a roll of masking tape (which I bought at the dollar store) using a black permanent marker, I then stick the written seed name onto the pot, This is just to make sure I know exactly what is in my pots.
Growing seeds need not be difficult
Greenhouses perfect for starting seeds and plants - Little greenhouses are just as good for the job on hand
I love my little 4 shelf greenhouse and it has produced some gorgeous plants over the years. I always buy seeds, and love planting and watching them grow.

Orchid Bees are incredible colorful rainforest creatures, like shimmering jewels with their bright metallic colors - deep blue, bottle green or gold. They also inspire beautiful bee jewelry.
