This year I bought some flower seeds from William Dam Seeds.
My father helped me make a flower garden, and here are some pictures.
I planted four kinds of poppies.
They are called Ladybird, bridal silk, Danish flag, and Double Shirley.
I didn’t get a picture of the Danish Flag, but it’s really special.
Poppy seeds are really small.
Double Shirley ~ Red
Double Shirley ~ White
I planted 8 geranium plants.
Some of them are from the Bull’s eye series.
The Geraniums from the Bull’s eye series have brown rings on their leaves.
Geraniums are pretty hardy: the ones I have survived 2 frosts.
Geranium ~ White
Geraniums ~ Light Pink
Bull’s Eye Series ~ Red
Geraniums ~ Peach
Geraniums ~ Dark Pink
You can see that some of them have the brown rings.
Lavatera – Silver Cup
These pink flowers are approximately 3 inches across.
These plants produce lots of flowers.
Dianthus – Sweet Williams
I started a few seeds of this plant, but only one survived to the blooming stage.
Datura – Belle Blanche
I grew my daturas in pots.
The whole plant is poisonous if eaten.
Their seed head is very special. It has spikes on it and it opens up to let the seeds come out.
The pure white flowers are taller than 6 inches and they usually opens at night.

This plant was not grown for flowers.
It has a lemon scent on its leaves that mosquitos hate.
