Ellen Kirby from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, finds joy and happy volunteers in her garden.
I have a blog, “How I Love to Garden,” and it reflects my absolute joy in the garden. These photos include the volunteer appearance of two such lovelies, the orange tiger lilies and the white daisies of some kind. Both showed up the first time about three years ago and have flourished annually. The hydrangeas are ‘Limelight’, and the white flowers near the pond are nicotiana. I have many different evergreens, which are dearly loved, but the favorite one is the dwarf dawn redwood in the courtyard garden. Finally, I had to throw in two photos of our food bank garden. The sunflowers in the watermelon field are spread throughout the garden to attract pollinators. And the beautiful salmon gaillardia is a star in our pollinator garden.
