It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

I pulled into our driveway on this dreary drizzly afternoon and realized that it was Monday and I should check out our gardens and see what is happening.  I am glad I did because I found some surprises.  First I found that there were a few peonies left that I should cut and bring inside.

When I looked closer I found several peonies to cut and bring inside

The plant this beautiful rose is on looks terrible, poor neglected thing, but it aways has such beautiful blooms.  Maybe I should give it a little attention, who knows what would happen then.

Iceland Poppy

(I found this on a clearance shelf last year and had forgotten about it.)

Coral Bells
Huechera "Cherries Jubilee"

Perennial Gold Dust Alyssum

I purchased several small plants at the Lavender Festival last summer, it is ready to cut as are several of the lavender plants.  I usually cut and dry most of my lavender.

Lettuce in our unplanted vegetable garden.  This came up from last years seeds.

The first signs of red on our raspberries, there will be bigger berries, maybe some sun will help.

Jerusalem Sage (Phlomis fruticosa)

This is what we are able to enjoy.  I would have missed them if I hadn't been thinking about "Bloomin Tuesday."  Go visit and see what's bloomin. Thank you to MsGreen"thumb"Jean for hosting.

  6. The Jerusalem Sage is certainly an interesting plant. The rose is a lovely color! I'm glad you took a little time to 'stop and smell the roses'! Love the bouquet! Jean

  7. Just stoppin' by from bloomin' tuesday. Your flowers are beautiful, but I'm courious as to what you will do with your raspberries....

  8. Love them all - epecially that rose and the poppies. Gorgeous! The raspberries remind me of visiting my grandparents in Maine as a kid - they grew raspberries and my Gram would make raspberry jam and raspberry pie and for breakfast she'd give us a bowl of fresh raspberries with milk and suger. I know that sounds weird, but it is fabulous.
