Ostrich Fern. I don't seem to have taken any other pictures of the few O's; this coming season (it is coming, isn't it??) I'll have to take photos with next spring's soup in mind! G.

Thanks Remi, I did know those daises did start with A but have no idea how to spell it, I don't think you got it right yet but my spelling is so bad, I can't get beyond the a - I thought ar something. Doesn't matter, your containers are always so gorgeous, I enjoy seeing them, no matter what the spelling of the contents are.

Wow, I discovered this site last summer and haven't thought about it till I got out my garden plans yesterday and now looking through the "Alphabet" I am sooooo looking forward to summer,

You all inspire me ...and teach me because I go on walks to look at other peoples garden but don't know the names, so now I am making a "wish list" from the "alphabet" lists,

thanks gals and guys!! You bring warmth to this very very cold winter soul. :)
