Your wildflower garden turned out beautifully! I love the collages.

I think that garden is very darn cool. It's a happy garden where things grow as they will.

Hi All, nice to know everyone enjoyed these wildflowers. We were glad to share and Grenville gets the credit for doing all the planting. Yes, Grammie G. he is wild and colorful most times!

Daisy, suprisingly there are not as many butterflies even though the mix stated it was for "butterflies and hummingbirds" Maybe they will come later in the season?
Mama-Bug you are welcome to visit with your camera anytime.
Thanks Christer and Elaine - the collages are fun and so easy to do using Picasa.
AC, if things grow where they will in a happy garden, then ours is certainly delirious with joy!
Thanks Rosa and Lois for the kind words!
Sandra, yes Grenville spread the seeds and covered them with the wood chips from the tree cut down in our front yard last fall. For the macros, I used the macro setting on my Canon PowerShot SX10.
Thanks Mona, coming from a fellow photographer that's a wonderful compliment!

Oh... I"m late to leave a comment! What stunning photos! I was about to ask how you did the collages, but I see it was via Picasa, I've never tried using that program.

Hi Grace, it's NEVER too late to leave a comment cause we always read them and comment. Picasa is fun and free and works well with LiveWriter which I use to compose my posts (ot Blogger).
