Every Blooming Thing














Leaving you with a little bit of color to get you thru weekend. At this time our perennials are in full swing. Wish they could look like this in May when we're swamped with people. But it doesn't work that way. Mother nature has her own time schedule.
I guess there's a tip in here somewhere. If you want to have your perennial garden in flower from Spring thru Fall then you need to come in every couple of weeks and see what's in bloom.
I wasn't going to go over the names of these plants....though this time I actually can remember them. They're just such cool names I wanted to mention them.
The 3rd on Hemerocallis (Daylily) is called Spiritual Corridor. The 4th one is Hydrangea Paniculata-Pinky Winky ( cute right?). #6 is Echinacea - Pica Bella - not that the name is so interesting but the flower is darker pink then most coneflowers.
I hear the weather's suppose to be nicer then they had predicted for the weekend.......so get out there and go scratch in the dirt, pull a few weeds or just sit back and enjoy the garden.
Where ever you are have FUN!!!!!
Carole
P.S. Don't forget Black and White Sunday
with Anne Marie of Na Da Farm Life.
Hope to see you then....

Beautiful photos as usual! Conflowers are one of my favorites. They grow very well here and actually seem to enjoy the heat.
