Abundance of beauty



These are just a few of the flowers currently blooming in our garden. These are such low maintenance and give so much beauty. So far even the earwigs haven't decided they're tasty enough to eat. We used to have some lilies too, but there's some sort of beetle that cleans them right off. With the current law here in Ontario, we are not allowed to use any sort of pesticides so what flowers we have need to be able to fend for themselves.

beautiful. its good that Ontario has such strict rules about pesticides - annoying for gardeners though.

They are so pretty! Love looking at flowers. I took more flower photos today too as I was driving around the area. It is so dry here I was surprised to see what I did.

Wow ! Wish we had laws like that here in the U.S.... pesticides end up in our drinking water ! You sure don't need them... your flowers are fabulous ! And, of course, there are natural methods of insect control... just Google it !
