Flowers, and a Visitor

Here's a view of a few of the things around the house today. A centerpiece/napkin holder, using small pots of succulents, peonies, and my grandmother's old baby bottles:


A nice view of the deck with the pond in the background:



Amaranthus:


Strawberries used for oramentals, rather than edible:

Mixed hanging pot:

Orange million bells:

Persian shield and sweet potato vine:

Don't know the name of this new-to-me petunia, but I love it:


 
The pond with the new dye color (for algae reduction):


Look closely, and you can see the visitor, just as he was taking off!

all lovely and inspiring but the green edge petunia is the winner!
