Summer Blooms

I don't really buy flowers, all the plants I have in my garden are grown from seeds that I save from the previous year.  Here are some of the plants that are blooming.
Marigolds before my pups destroyed it.. sigh
colorful zinnias
Petunias with  wandering jew.  
Do you save seeds or you prefer to buy plants in store?

Wow, these are really beautiful, sis! You just made me smile with these blooms. You know what a flower lover I am. I'm just wondering though why I can't see the photos, I had to click on it to see the full view. Maybe, my computer. Anyway, missing you and your blogs. Glad there's FB, so I get to see the little kids beautiful faces pa rin in the feeds.

Love the shot of the Marigold, Rose - rich colours. Pity about the pup's enthusiasm to help you in the garden - I have a similar problem! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Zinna's are my favorite garden flowers and I don't have a single one. The prettiest little garden I ever had was full of zinna's, planted from seeds. It's too dry out here in West Texas for much of any kind of flowers. :(

I try to keep seeds each year, they seem to be fine most of the time. Diane

When I was growing up, seeds were all we had. They are hard to find in the little packages like we had. You are doing very well with yours.
