Bromeliad

Pineapple Sage has been blooming for months now.
Jacobina
Milkweed, I know it's not the type you have Leedra this is of course, Asclepias, Silky Gold.
Purple Coneflowers do not want to give up.
Snapdragons and
Stock trying to make a comeback.

Gerbera Daisies still at it.

My different colored Pansies.



Ornamental Kale
I have so enjoyed watching this flowering Cabbage, I'll buy more than one next year.
Yay! Candytuft is blooming!!
Sweet Allysum
Salvia
Petunias


and I cleaned up around the shed yesterday. Planted some Day Lilies between the border grass, I have about 1/4 of the way before it's all around the shed. Behind the shed I have two Pineapple Sage plants one at each corner, three Daylilies and some tree, gotta find the name of it. This has been such an exciting project. Will finish the stenciling when the girls go back to school on Tuesday.

Funny to see that the seasons are so different between two country's. In our garden there is nothing that blooms for the moment. The hyacint on my blog is growing inside the house ...
Greetings from Belgium !

Lovely all those different flowers and plants and you being able to plant other plants while we have frost. Happy 2009.

bennie and patsy said...

Do you plantd ever go dormant? Or do they just bloom all year? The shed is looking like a flower to.

Lilli & Nevada said...

perennialgardener said...

You must be having some mild temps to be getting such pretty blooms still. All that is blooming here are the pansies. ;)

Leora said...

So much in bloom! I love seeing your snapdragons. And that's what candy tuft looks like... I tried it in my yard, but it didn't survive.

What a lovely variety of flowering plants you have around you! Thanks for sharing your photos.

ViennaDaily said...

You got lots! I am always amazed with pansies because I have never taken even one photo of them. And of course the ornamental kales are an interesting bunch, I had posted them late last year, and will again when they are available! I enjoyed your wonderful flower display. Enjoy the week.

Roses and Lilacs said...

That kale is certainly pretty. I want to try and find that pineapple sage to try in my area.

Dorothy said...

Hi Darla,
Your flowers are all beautiful, but that hot pink Gerbera Daisy is a knock-out!! Looks like you will have something blooming year round!

Davene said...

It was fun to pop over here tonight and see all the flowers you are blessed to see around you! Here in our neck of the woods, nothing is blooming. This is the time of the year that I, by nature, endure and have to remind myself to find the beauty in it as well! I can hardly wait for spring. :)

You do a beautiful job creating beauty around you!

Thanks For 2 Day said...

fishing guy said...

Darla: What a wonderful bunch of flower captures. I'm sure everyone is amazed by the number of blooms you have in your garden.

Frances said...

Hi Darla, so much blooming in your neck of the woods, hooray! Your shed landscaping project is coming along nicely. I love the grasses at the perimeter, they go so well with the red color. Well done!
Frances

Shellmo said...

Your pansies look perfect! And I just love that ornamental cabbage and kale - I'll have to see if they grow in my zone!

You lucky girl it's warm at your part of the world, since today we have snow here in Belgium. Hasn't happened since years !!

Day4plus said...

It is funny how some plants just don't want to let go. I do like Pineapple Sage and mine bloomed very late but is under snow now. Pansies just go all year round--same with Snaps. I think our climates are about the same. MB

marmee said...

wow you have so much blooming. i have yet to be prepared for the winter with steady things blooming. this yard for me does not flow at all except in the natural sense. which is good but i have lots to do here before it feels like home.
your shed and the surroundings are looking great.

Dani said...

Very nice Darla! Looks like you got bit by the pansy bug too.;)

Titania said...

A cheerful show of flower power.

Tootsie said...

just me here being jealous!

Olga said...

Pineapple Sage? That is such a pretty name! Does it actually smell like pineapple?

Carletta said...

They are all wonderful but I love that pink daisy!

Race said...

you have lovely flowers in your yard darla! i love the yellow ones!
