Flower show @ vegetplotlot 2011

I can say this is a brilliant year for flowers at my plot.  As you can see in the follow images that I took from my plot…blooming beauty.

Planting flowers at the plot is really benefit for all the other vegetable and fruit crops… as they attract insects to speed up the pollinate process… my saying is without bees there is no honey, and without flowers there is no bees….

Mainly I have planted my flowers at the front and bottom of my plot… in between bed’s corner dotted some flower plants too… a collective way to round-up the insects in my plot… I think this may work for me…..

Bed 1

The front…. In this bed I have cramped in Rudbeckia, Sweet Peas, Gladioli… they are really fantastic…

Bed 1 flower galore 2011

The bottom…. this is suppose my wild flower patch… last year I had scatter some wild flower seeds and let the nature takes the hand to see to it…It did have a very attractive result…

This year I have this Malva flowers plants coming up which I did not sow particularly, I guess it must from last year’s seeds which coming up this year… and I research about this and found that this is a perennial plant and the variety of this one is ‘Windsor Castle’…. so I have got a royal structure at my bottom of my plot…

The wonderful thing is my Raspberry bed is nearby, and with the blooming Malva not far from it…. my raspberry did have a bonus benefit….

Last year I saw people having good time growing Sunflowers at the plot, so I decided to grow some this year… not too bad… if I stack them up properly they may shoot up taller… by and by they look stunning when open up…..

Here is a clip to catch some of their beauty,…

I still looking for the name of the bee plant that I planted in between the bed… the flowers of this plant is like a tiny mini orchid and when it starts blooming… imagine many mini orchids open up and the bees are in heaven to take the nectar…… since I planted this at home seven years ago, I always fascinated when I see the attraction of the bees….. unfortunately I have misplaced this plant’s name and I given its name ‘Bees plant’… and hoping one day I’ll find its real id….
