Garden Bloggers Bloom Day..

I posted my Watery Wednesday photos earlier. Started going through the blogs I visit daily and DANG! there's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day! That's when gardeners from around the world post what's bloomimg in their gardens on the 15th of every month. (I couldn't find a meme to register with, is there one?) I grabbed the camera and out I went. These are not all of my blooms and I tried not to duplicate yesterday's Bloomin'Tuesday. You will probably notice the dew drops on the flowers.. Hope you enjoy!

Mystery Mum. Society Garlic - I still have plenty of these.
Yes, I am amazed that this plant is still producing blooms. Angel Trumpet - Datura.
Golden Dew Drop, it will have gold berries when it is finished blooming.Stock Fan Flower, see how the bloom makes the shape of a fan? It is purple in color - the light and the morning dew is making the color hard to see. Rudbeckia

Different colors of my Dianthus - Sweet William



I have four different Coleus in this container, when this one blooms it makes the container that more interesting.White PetuniasCanna LilyBlue Daze in yet another one of my hanging baskets.Still have blooms on my purple Butterfly Bush.

I just had to back up to this post and leave a comment. These are lovely photos from your garden - as are your other flower posts. The angel trumpet is stunning! I'm going to have to try to find one of those.

What a beautiful garden! I'm afraid my garden is mostly non-existent at this time of year with nothing much blooming except weeds.

Aisha said...

Those flowers look so beautiful. Such lovely photos. :) Wish I know how to take care of plants.

What a wonderful garden you have.

You grow lots of beautiful flowers. You got to live somewhere that spring is there or early summer. Here in SW Ohio where I live all of these flowers are spent, and gone. We are getting ready for winter's wrath.

I think your Angel Trumpet will keep blooming for a while, here it is until frost. Not sure what that would be in FLA, do you have frost very often?

I absolutely love the blue pansy bloom. I have the hardest tiem getting a bloom I like of pansy blooms.

I have just taken a longer look and I have decided that the big purple ruffly trumpet one is my favorite. (It's been 5 seconds and I can't even remember it's name.)

All those blooms look so beautiful! Your gardens must be so happy looking.

Darla, So many great blooms... you have a lot going on in your garden. Did you ever find the link back for bloom day? You can find it here. Carol over at May Dreams Garden has been doing this since February of 2007... there are quite a lot of participants... you'll want to go over and check it out.

Love your garden photos. You are lucky to still have lots of beautiful flowers! Remind people that the datura is poisonous, all parts of the plant, so be careful about planting around children. But they sure are gorgeous. The water shots are wonderful, too. And thanks for visiting my blog!
