I love the color and look of those globe thistles, that's a great picture.

You've got quite a list of flowers, your hot, dry garden must be an oasis right now.

Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Jocelyn, I was excited to see another Colorado Gardener participating in Bloom Day! I enjoyed a visit to your site... you are multi-talented, for sure. The Globe Thistle is really impressive. Does it stand up well to wind? I'm going to add you to my list of favorite blogs to visit.

Hi Jocelyn, I found your blog through Bev, nice to find another Colorado blogger. Our numbers are growing.

I enjoyed the Enchanted Garden Tour of Northwest Denver and posted about it here Other People’s Gardens. I can't remember the addresses now but I'm sure I saw the Victorian garden you designed, since we went to all of them!
