Morning Glory, Marigolds, Zinnia and Mystery Flowers

Happy floral Friday! I finally have a decent morning glory photo to share with you. We've had blue ones in the past but this year they seem to be all white. The pink flower in the background is an evening primrose.

Although I've been under the weather this week (migraines), my Maryland garden is thriving. The marigolds especially seem to be growing more than any previous batch. They're much taller and wider than usual and have even spread into the pink zinnia bed. I like a well packed cottage garden look and the hot pink and bright yellow are a nice combination so I'm glad for their extra growth.

While the majority of the French marigold plants (grown from seed!) seem to be primarily yellow there are some reds, golds and oranges sprinkled in.

  In this overview photo you can see we have a carpet of marigolds.

This last photo features mystery flowers from a plant my dear friend Missy gave me last year. I think she said it was some kind of herb but neither of us knows for sure what it is. If you know, please share. Thank you for visiting! May God bless and keep you!
