And he should be proud. It is gorgeous. I would love to try my hand at the Cleome. I have seen those before and they are so pretty! Very nice. Great share!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Lynn I did not see an email so I will post here instead. Here is a web site on the butterfly bush. You might have some luck with it in Canada.

This is from Florida but it gives all the information on the plant. Good luck.

The one at the church I went to in TN was huge and every year we cut it way back and it had huge flowers. I plant to do that with this one and see what we get!

Wow! Such pretty flowers! I've never had luck with impatience although it's supposedly foolproof. I love those double blooms!
Tell you dad thanks for me. I really enjoyed his contribution!
Thanks also for visiting me today :))

So that's what Sharon's Roses looks like. I always wanted to see one thanks. I have a small rose bush I put out in the summer and keep in the house all winter and it blooms all year round.

Hello To Richard. :) I see that your father likes and grows some of the same plants that I do. The second photo of rose of sharon is very similar to the colour of my rose of sharon shrub. The impatiens are lovely, and well, cleomes I just adore. :)
