I have never seen an aubergine flower before but they are lovely. Your marigold photo is superb. I love the photo of Daisy watching the birds.

sara, this is a first aubergine for me too, I'll see how they go but if they are only flowering now I think there may not be time for them to set fruit and mature. the marigold looks quite sureal I think.

I just love those pictures of Daisy.. I think my fav is the marigold pic.

Some beautiful photos, the one you had forgotten looks like a close of ageratum. It's a great annual. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I look forward to dropping by yours from time to time.
All the best,

DF, glad I included the marigold then, I nearly didn't as its slightly out of focus. pleased with the marigolds as I grew them from seed this year.
Bob, ageratum!! thanks for that, its a really pretty little plant I bought from the garden centre to fill in a bit of space, shame its an annual but I'll make an effort maybe to grow them for next year as its so pretty.

I've got ageratum too - Hawaii Blue, naturally!

I love the color & the fluffy look.

Pretty kitty!

The aubergine resembles the borage flower, doesn't it? It made me long to grow borage again ;)

Daisy is a beauty. Our Tiger likes to hang out in the garden with me. We named him Tiger Lilly before anyone knew he was a male!

Daisy says thankyou and twitches her whiskers to you all as a greeting.

Daisy is winning hearts I see :) Lovely photos of her, and yes, she's gorgeous!
Is Aubergine eggplant? (I'm drawing a blank..should look it up). Lovely pics of your flowers. The blue ageratum looks really pretty combined with marigolds, especially yellow.
