What’s Blooming!


It’s getting near the end of the what’s blooming posts. That’s a little sad. There are still some things happening, though, including the last flush of rose blooms. This is the enchanted evening:

This will be today’s pink picture as well. Please click here to support free mammograms!

What’s Blooming!

It’s time to starting turning the garden into fall. Cleaning out the tired annuals, planting bulbs and fall perennials.

The bed looks a little empty without the tall annuals:

The new drill bit works pretty well for planting. I did 30 bulbs in 30 minutes. It took me a few minutes to get […]

What’s Blooming!

I have a couple new blooms to show this week! Nothing like late bloomers (see what I did there?)

I still am stuck on close up shots of the garden. Looks like a Daddy Longlegs on the coneflower.



Did you know that DLL is not really a spider? I saw some science […]

What’s Blooming!


It’s now actually starting to seem a little more like fall and less like summer. Still plenty of bloom time left, though. Fall always seems like black-eyed Susan time to me. Maybe because they bloom for so long and are still around after other stuff starts to fade. This is […]

What’s Blooming!

I have been making progress on the shade bed. It’s actually all along the fence on one side, but I am only concentrating on this one area of it right now. I have been clearing and planting as I go. I tackled the hardest part last weekend. This area was full of ground cover when […]

What’s Blooming!

More fall plants arrived for planting now. I bought some from a wholesaler, so they are tiny baby plants. These are heuchera (and one heucherella).

That’s 4 plants in this bowl (getting a drink) I got them from Hostas Direct. The heuchera are Peppermint Spice, Plum Sugar and Spellbound. The heucherella is Sweet […]

What’s Blooming!

As I said yesterday, it’s been a little hot to work in the garden much except at the bookends of the day. I did see a sign at one of the nurseries by our house that had 50% off perennials! So, you know I had to check it out.

They had a clearance on […]

What’s Blooming!

It’s Friday! So glad. In trying to get this account caught up current, we are each assigned to one person’s dictations. I have been listening to the same woman all week. I think that is the defnition of insanity right there. Whew. At least she is now only 10 days behind instead of a month […]

What’s Blooming!

The August garden. Some flowers are sleeping, some are done and some are just coming out.

The cleome are starting to fade now. And check out that coneflower! <3

I found a suprise popup sunflower. Not sure where this came from – probably a bird dropping seed.

Now that summer flowers are […]

What’s Blooming!

What’s blooming today? Rocks!! Any of you keeping track might remember the little wall we removed from the garden bed by the house a couple weeks ago. The bed was very sloping and I was moving dirt when I unearthed a ton of rocks:

I emailed Debby with a picture of my find right […]
