    Default Flower of the Day for a year - a Challenge!

    I have no idea how many different flowers grow in my garden. Do you know how many you have?

    The Challenge is to find 365 different flowers - one a day - which must be in flower on that day, every day for a year. No duplication!

    Photographs welcome!
    Different named varieties can be included - so 7 different roses count for 7 days.

    Is it possible? The winter months will be hard but maybe that's the time of year when we need more flowers?

    Anyone up for it?

    I won't get many in the winter, I'm not even sure I could manage a different flower a day in the Summer but I'll start taking photos regardless

    As you started this challenge yesterday VC. Here's the sunflower I took yesterday ( from self saved seed so not sure if he's a true variety or a mix )

    You wait till I do away with all me perennials and set up this challenge, no matter I will give it a go
    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.
