Sunflower Houses

Whether you have kids or not, Sunflower Houses is a wonderfully whimsical book to add to your garden library. The illustrations are sweet and sentimental. Who knew there were ballerinas (or princesses) hidden inside bleeding hearts? "If you gently fold back the hoop skirt of the bleeding heart, inside you will find "princess "Di" Centra". Try it! This is a view of springs past, gardens in the front and Pomeranian geese.

Glade (for sale), the ram and Glimmer, his sister.

well.. who knew? about the ballerina in the bleeding heart. That is really neat. Beautiful peony! The peony itself looks like a watercolor painting! It would be a beautiful picture to frame and hang on the wall. Adorable lambs too.
