Happy Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day!

Things are cooking along in our garden…

Here’s what’s blooming…

IMG_1811Pink Geranium

IMG_1814Pink petunias

IMG_1816Pink Mandevilla

IMG_1820Salmon pink geranium

There’s a theme here…

Most of the front yard is pink this year. I’m just in this very pink place and I’m loving it!

I’d like to post some broader photos but I’m not feeling quite that brave.

There’s gaps and paint that needs some work.  Maybe we’ll get to that soon.

IMG_1818We have several knockout rose bushes which will bloom all summer long,  no painting needed…

I just planted this clump of daisies that I won at Garden Club in June. They’re on their second bloom.

IMG_1829I believe that this is obedient plant, or a volunteer foxglove?  We’ve discussed this other years and I’m quite sure that the consensus was obedient plant.

IMG_1821Lovage flower, not too lovely, but interesting..

IMG_1801This is the very first purple coneflower, and a friend 🙂

IMG_1798The beginning of the black-eyed Susan and day lilies…

IMG_1796Liatris, just getting started..

IMG_1794Bellflower

IMG_1792One of my favorite day lilies

IMG_1788Balloon flower

IMG_1787Yarrow

IMG_1783I believe that this is a very old type of rudbekia. It’s originally from the Derby Garden at the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, but I’ve had it for years.

IMG_1772Much newer pink gaura

IMG_1768and Peach Blossom Blanket flower..

We’ve been selling lots of blanket flower at my workplace so I had to plant some and I’m enjoying it.  It seems to be very tolerant of changes in temperature and humidity and it’s very compact and low growing, so perfect at the front of a bed. I’ll keep you posted as the summer goes on.

What’s blooming in your garden? Be sure to visit May Dreams Gardens and check out the links to gardens all over the world. It’s so much fun to look around from there!

Take care and enjoy!

Love, Michele

  1. It’s certainly beautiful and colorful at your house – good combination. 🙂 I noticed the phlox just started this week, but we need rain so badly. I have noticed a few plants are browning out because I normally don’t water established perennials. I may have to break that rule this year. 🙂
