Blooming Friday~ Upside Down


Bees find drinking nectar and gathering pollen just as easy upside down as right side up.


The picture below looks like it was turned upside down, but it wasn't. lol


The flowers of the Hybrid Musk 'Felicia' are just as lovely nodding as they would be facing upwards..



Happy Friday, and join Katerina at roses and stuff for more Blooming Fridays!

  7. Those nodding blooms are the clever ones, protecting their precious pollen and inside parts from rain!

  11. As always your photos are a true delight. I love Felicia, had her at one time and she was a favorite, then I lost her. It's always awful to lose plants. Thank you for sharing from your wonderful gardens.

  18. I can't believe you still have flowers blooming! I have a pink rose that has put out buds but is too wise to to open them. The flowers would surely freeze! Give Roguchi a try. It's really easy to grow. Clematis like good drainage and moist soil. Native Clematis crispa at Brushwood Nursery (online) would do well for you, too. I grow that one, also and it's also really easy.
