Well, I'm happy to report my hardy hibiscus is FINALLY blooming! The flowers are bigger than my hand! Pretty white blooms with a hint of pink at the edge and a bit of red in the center.

The buds look like white cuban cigars!

I have more pics but I will try to be patient and wait until the next page. Patience isn't exactly a virture of mine so you may all see them before the next page. lol

Everything looks so healthy Loz. I've got quite a bit blooming here but it's been raining again.

I also have red astilbes that bloomed pink this year and a pink day lily that bloomed orange. There has been some 'jumping of the fence' so to speak. lol

Gorgeous! Love the sunflower, they are such happy plants! Mine are pretty much bloomed. I was shocked at how large my rudbeckia has gotten in two years, it looks like a bush!

The nasturtiums are just beautiful!

That's what crocosmia looks like! Cool! I got some from Oregon in the early spring. I assume they;ll bloom next spring. Pretty! Hey I have a tub like your white waves are in. I may have to drag it out next year.

I love all your pink flowers Lynne. Is there one spot you can tep back and get a wide shot of lots blooming at once. I like the close ups, but also the 'big picture'.

The waves in the tub actually are a really light lavender with a little darker throat. The color didn't show up that great in the pic though. I planted waves in that tub last year and I just love it! They fill in their really nice. I will continue that every year!

I thought the crocosmia were spring bloomers too but those just started blooming a couple weeks ago for me and have been going strong since. Alan sent me the bulbs sometime last summer. I planted them last fall and I was so happy when they came up! Good luck with yours Wrennie! Can't wait to see them next year!

Me either. Theyre only a few inches tall so unless they give a late bloom I dont think I'l see them this year.

Ya know, Wrennie... most of my flowering "plants" aren't all that impressive as a whole... but I can usually find one or two really nice blooms on them to share - that's why I don't post pics of the "big picture"...

Now here's a horse of a different [b][color:#FF6666] color! lol
