Oh, this plant you posted, CockneyRebel, is one that grows in my country - only in the Tatra mountains area :D We call it "szarotka" because "szary" means "grey" here and this is the color of this flower :D

It’s too hard to pick a favorite.
What’s in bloom right now, Daffodils.
I have over thirty varieties.
After those pass it will be whatever is next in line.Lilacs, old fashioned roses, day lilies, and others.
I want to try those petunias posted above.
I have the old fashioned balcony petunias that have a wonderful fragrance in the evening.I save the seeds.
Right now I have two small gardenias that are potted up and in the window.They have flowers buds and fingers crossed they bloom.Not hardy outside here and love the fragrance.

I love zinnias for their colors:

And lily of the valley for their incredible scent, and also they are so tiny they seem like flowers for woodland fairies.

These are so effective and look great next to california poppies.
Or any intense orange/yellow flower.

Here in Calif. more and more wildflowers are blooming after ample Winter rains. It's uncommon (and hence worth a photograph) to find the orange California Poppies blooming with purple, yellow, and white flowers blooming within a ten square-foot land area.

I had some gorgeous california poppies blooming around my caenothus or california lilac. Unfortunately the blooms on the caenothus don't last very long at all. I feel sorry for the bees as they love it.

Spider Lilies are another beautiful yet peculiar flower that made their way to the US from Japan many years ago. We also call these "Hurricane Lilies" because they only bloom flowers around hurricane season, and the rest of the year they die down only to sprout flowers and then leaves again next year.

In Japan they're also linked to death and the Underworld. In case you guys didnt know my avatar is a picture of this flower from my yard that I edited to match my username.

:skull: :flower: :king:
