Good evening GTers! It's a bit late in the day but I've been busy this week and won't be around much! However I didn't want to miss #wildlifewednesday today! So here's a tiny #greenfly enjoying the delights of one of my #felicia blooms! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! 😀 #bug #bugs #insect #wildlife #macro

Good morning GTers! After a very brief rest my beautiful #blue #felicia are flowering again! This was taken yesterday just before the hail arrived so they're probably destroyed now! Oh well, I'm sure they'll recover! Have a terrific Tuesday everyone! 😀

It wasn't difficult to pick my personal #bestofapril plant as it has been the most prolific bloomer in my garden for months! Even being under six inches of snow earlier this year hasn't dissuaded it from flowering! If it continues for another couple of months it'll have flowered for 12 months straight! 😀 #blue #felicia

@kathy - I honestly can't believe it Kathy! I've done literally nothing for them since planting them up in a pot either, other than water them occasionally! I'd thoroughly recommend them! 😀

Good afternoon GTers! I simply can't believe it has been nearly three months since I uploaded anything! Life has been hectic! It's the first time I've been in my neglected garden for months, and I was quite surprised to see this little #blue #felicia still flowering - despite the heavy frost this morning! Hope everyone is well and looking forward to Christmas! 🎅😀
