Is it really a blue*ish* color
like it looks???
That's pretty!!!

Have your Tri~colored one's bloomed yet?
Yes, it does have the blue-ish tint to the blooms.
No, the tri-colors are still babies. They won't bloom till next year-- at least I hope they'll bloom next year!!!
The truth behind the tri-colors is; its just three different plants put in the same pot. Then when you set it out and it grows/blooms it looks like three different colors on the same plant...

Meg I so enjoy your photos. You are a good photographer. Thanks for sharing.

My portulaca plants are blooming multi colored and the primroses have started blooming again?????? My marigolds are going nuts. I have some more lavender to plant.....I was gifted with 2 - 4 inch pots of it. I do like lavender. Now to decide where to put it. Such a pleasant dilemma.

awe, sorry to hear that g-mom. I'm afraid to try them again..lol.

Mike, I love that beautiful bed of daylilies. Mine are so small yet. *sigh* Of course, if they ever get big, they're gonna be too big for where they are..

g-mom, that bloom from the Brugmansia, is lovely. I really like how you went under it for the shot.

Love all the pictures!

G-mom - those mexican petunias are great! Did you buy the plants or grow them from seeds? I've never seen them around here...

A few pics to share, and then I'm off to go plant some flowers for my parents.

Yucca in full bloom:

Cherry dianthus (looks much redder in the pics - is really a deep rosy pink):

Have a great gardening day everyone!

My dianthus are white and little tiny ball shaped blooms. I think the wrong seeds got in that packet lol. Wal-mart strikes again. And they are covered in little black bugs. And I mean covered stem to stern so to speak.

I was wondering if that was a yucca the guy had down the road. I can't believe the size of his stock it's huge. Thanks for the pictures guys.

After the rain (we got some finally!!!)
I've been having trouble taking pictures of this in sun,
so decided to try after rain.

yellow loosestrife - not invasive at all like the purple,
and the first year I actually got to see blooms in 5 years -
the woodchucks usually eat them before they get a chance. mad

That's a mighty pretty place to take a rest and enjoy the garden.

I'm sorry to hear your woodchucks are such hungry little fellows. But I'm glad they gave you a break this year so you could show off your pretty flowers.

Thanks, TK! The arbor is supposed to have cardinal flower vine growing up the sides and top for my hummers, but for some reason, this year the plants have stalled in their growth and are not vining at all! These are from seeds that I saved from last year's store bought plants. They look healthy enough, but just are not growing. Duh

Here are some of today's pretty faces:

These were supposed to be the same as the baby pink lilies I posted before?!? I got them the following year - both from Home Depot, both with the same label. I guess the fact that these are in full sun, and the others get mostly shade, makes the difference in intensity of color.
[Linked Image]

More cacti blooms - wish they would bloom all summer, they are soooooooo cheery. I will only get about another week of blooms. ters
[Linked Image]

p.s. did you know that the cacti blooms only last ONE day?!? Such a shame!

The Cardinal vine is a red flower right? That would be super in that location.

I would definitely move them into the shade, the lillies that is. This from a person who didn't think she liked pink lol.

The seafood resturant down the block from me has the prickly pear (that is, what that is, isn't it?) has those in raised graveled beds all around their parking lot and outside dinning area. They have looked charming but are all closed up now so I guess it'll be next year before I see any more. I was supprised that they would survive in this area at all. We do get rain usually in down pours around here.

I don't have any additional blooms yet but I'm waiting and watching.

I also rescued 2 wandering jews from the dollar table in the nursery....I love them! It was the very first houseplant I bought years ago.

I think that's the fack coleus. It looks the same as mine. It's the first time I've had leaves that large on a coleus. I have a packet of babies breath I'm thinking of planting them next spring. That would be the right time right?

I love all your pictures. Those "frames" are so cute. It reminds me of the old pictures with the scalloped edges. I haven't seen those in years.

Yep Tammy next spring would be the right time to plant them out...

I have a really cool photo editor that came with my computer that lets me make the edges like that.....

I love the hydrangeas....I have 5 alltogether....I have so many flowers that it seems impossible to show them all....by the end of summer though I might have gotten to most of them!

Someday Loz, someday I want to be able to say that too. But today I have 16 things planted out in the garden several that don't bloom on purpose lol. Next year I hope to be able to double that and do the final two tiers of the garden. Then it will be enjoying and weeding and watering. And replanting areas that don't re seed. At least that seems to be the way it works. That falls under the heading, "Life happens while we're busy making other plans" category. lol
