Today's Flowers: Impatiens (I know...no one is growing them anymore, but just look at them!)




Downy Mildew has been a huge problem last year and this year, resulting in many gardeners forgoing this lovely little shade plant.  But since I am not planting directly into the garden and using fresh soil yearly, I don't believe I have downy mildew to worry about.  And, would you look at this gorgeous little thing!  The early morning light behind this planter accents the blossoms, emphasizing the delicate shell pink, illuminating the petals.  I love this time of day to photograph the garden.

Do you have a favourite time of day for garden photography?

I am joining Today's Flowers meme for the first time.  I know you love flowers, why else would you be here?  So why not pop over to see what I discovered....a meme devoted especially to flowers!

These Impatiens look beautiful and you captured from creative angles!
In California they are still one of the very common flowers.

Thank you for visiting my blog earlier:)

I love impatiens and planted a whole bed of them in a shady spot in front of our house one year. They looked absolutely gorgeous, as do these. I had never heard of the mildew though. Thank you for sharing your photos with Today's Flowers and wishing you a great week.
