Hello Monday

This beautiful bloom was the first thing I notice when I walked into my backyard this morning.  A few posts ago I told you about the seeds that Sandra, aka Mad Snapper, had mailed me.  Well, this is also from Sandra.  This is a Powder Puff.  You've seen lots of these on Sandra's blog, her backyard is full of gorgeous flowers and plants.  I'm really enjoying watching all the growing stages of these gorgeous flowers.  Thanks again Sandra!

What a beautiful bloom! Seeing that would have been a great way to start the day. From reading Sandra's comment she is obviously proud of her grandchild.
