I think I say this every week but my garden does continue to surprise me. I found some plants blooming and I thought I would share them.
First I want to show your our Hibiscus or Rose of Sharon
This picture was taken while there was a light rain
The flowers are high on the plant.
The look like they are a lilac color before they open
With the sun shinning on the double flower they look very pink
This is a new plant to my garden so here it stands with one lovely flower.
I have always liked Gooseneck Loosestrife
I have a little white fence piece to hold it up when it starts flopping down. I think the cat or dog may have something to do with some of my floppy plants.
I pinched back my pink geranium a while back and here it is full and beautiful again. Notice my pink flamingo? My sister gave that to me when I turned 55. She said that this is necessary in a garden belonging to someone of my age.
This shrub is called Shrubby Hare's Ear or Bupleurum fruticosum
I think shrubby hare's ear works for me.
Ligularia dentata "Othello"
I think this plant should be moved to a shadier spot, I was hoping that the surrounding plants would shade it sooner than they have.
My new Malva plant.
I bought that after visiting my friend Kerri's garden and saw hers.
I had forgotten how much I like this plant.
This is called Cupids Dart or Catananche
It is hard to take a clear picture of it because the delicate flower is always moving, even in a slight breeze.
Well that is what I found this week bloomin in our garden. I didn't even make it to the back garden to see if I missed something. I'll have to check that out later, before the next Bloomin Tuesday.
I hope you enjoyed the brief tour and take a look at the other gardens linked on Bloomin Tuesday.
