O is for Lathyrus odoratus or sweet peas. I think this is a mix of 'April in Paris' and 'Jewels of Albion'

Osteosporum growing in Pam's front garden. Her hubby loves yellow flowers.

My Osteospernums never looked that good so I quit growing them.

Nice Oxalis Kelly, how lucky to have a little spot for it. Love that red one Remi!

Remi, I wish I could get my containers to look like yours, yours are always so beautiful. Sharon, I planted some golden oregano after seeing yours last year, I hope it grows as nice as yours. Dora, I love the colour of your sweet peas. Must note for 2010 as already ordered my sweet peas seeds this year.

Now I love poppies of all shape and sizes and colours but this Oriental Poppy is a favourite of mine with its fringed edge.

I discovered this little oak last fall growing in back of my place. Come spring, it will be growing in my yard.

I am an Ornamental Grass fan and although I really planned on having them growing all in one bed (this one) I got then here and there throughout the garden. This was taken in early November 2008.

Thanks Betty. However, I made a mistake as I thought those little pink daisies were osteopermums but I now remember that they were called " asperygatum"Sometimes I found it difficult to differientiate between The french word the english word or the latin!!!Your beautiful oriental poppie is called "Turkenlouis"
