Bloomin' Tuesday...

Society Garlic
Geranium Bud
Pink Verbena, I also have the Homestead (purple) and the red with the white center Verbena bloomin'.
The Cleome are just full of buds.

Jane Cowell Hibiscus with different shades of peach and salmon.

Rose of Sharon (hibiscus family) is waking up from a long winters nap.


The back is pretty too!
I can't remember the name of this Daff, I love the orange and yellow.

Ornamental Kale is flowering, I am hoping to harvest seeds from these. Anyone know where they will be?
Lantana is waking up too.
Lacecap Hydrangea is looking good. Ms. Doris gave me this last year.Dianthus
Queen's Tears Bromeliad looks cool in a hanging container.
I am getting so excited about this gardening season. I have a ton of first plants that I can hardly wait to see how they will do in this zone 8. I also have other plants waking up like, Firespike (red), Milkweed, the White with the red center Hibiscus, Purple Coneflowers, Golden Dewdrop, Pineapple Sage and Marigold to name a few.

They are all beautiful pictures. You will love the pineapple sage. The hummingbirds love this at our house and the leaves are so fragrant!

That Society Garlic is very pretty Darla. Some of the things you have blooming now won't be blooming here for another couple of months. Beautiful!

I really like that ornamental Kale - I think you showed another photo of it before and it got me hooked!

Carla said...

You have a lot bloomin' in your garden today. Looks like your getting ready to put in more plants. Oh how I want to make a new bed, but it is gonna have to wait a few weeks, when I get time. Love all these lovely blooms. It is suppose to be in the upper 70's today, hope it is warm there also. Hugs, Rosemarie

Darla: What beautiful blooms you have already. You are really doing well with the flower photos.

Life has been too busy for me to do much blogging recently, and I've missed visiting your site, Darla. How lovely to find all these spring blooms when I do eventually manage to get to the computer. They've brightened up my rather frantic week.

You have a lovely set of flowers blooming at the moment. I especially like the Cleome - such delicate spidery flowers and a pretty colour too!

Susie said...

Looks like your whole yard must be waking up. Beautiful as usual Darla!

We are getting excited right along with you. I think our gardens will be the best and mostly cause we've all become friends and a support system.

Wow, what a difference one zone makes. I'm in 7 and we don't have those kinds of blooms. I'm excited for you too! Very pretty in your garden this week.
