Header Challenge----"Looking Up"

We are having the Header Challenge a day early this week. http://thefishingguy.blogspot.com/ picked the theme this week, "Looking Up". Be sure to visit him, and http://imac-photosfromthemindseye.blogspot.com/ and http://womtig.blogspot.com/ to see what their ideas of this theme are.

Because I posted Morning Glory's looking up in the header I thought I would throw in a few more flowers that are blooming in my gardens today.


Petunias and Alyssum



Salvia 'Hot Lips'

I am so in love with the Forget Me Nots and will planting them all through

the gardens come Spring.


Now, who will get the Gold Shield this week?????
