Bloomin' Tuesday...(some)

Here are some of the flowers that I have blooming right now. With an expected cold snap I will be covering plants and bringing containers in. We all know there is always one last cold snap before Easter........why don't we listen?

My Dad gave me a cutting from one of my Mom's climbing roses last year, here it is still in the container.

My Clematis is doing quite well.



Yellow Snapdragons have finally decided to give us a show.

Hypoestes-Pink Blush is coming back.

Dianthus-Sweet William

White Petunias with Pink Dianthus

Tagetes-Marigold

I have my first Purple Coneflower bud of the year.

Salvia-Hot Lips


The colors of the Gerbera Daises will be a surprise because I rescued them from the snares of my Dad's lawn mower blades!

Yarrow

Cleome

Much bloomin goin on there! Lucky you! Winter's back here!

Paula said...

Love your flowers! THe sizes of some of your things amaze me - it must be the longer growing season. I have some of the same thigns but they aren't nearly so big. I always look forward to your blog! THanks for sharing. Paula from Idaho

You have so much blooming. Many of the things blooming now in your garden won't bloom until July here;)

That clematis is lovely.

WOW! We have a lot of snow on the ground. And you have beautiful flowers. Thanks for sharing! I love that clemetis!

Carla said...

I know I am ready for Easter to come and go then! This freeze warning stuff is craziness! (yep, I know the 'one last winter blast before Easter' rule too, don't like this one:)

Catherine Holman said...

Hi Darla,
Your flowers are so pretty! I had to cover my lilac bush last night because of freezing temps again. I wish spring weather would settle in!
Hugs,
Cathie

Look how beautiful it is! Your clematis is making me anxious to see some bloom here! We seem to have a nice week around Easter, and then it cools down for a while again. Hope your cold snap doesn't damage your flowers.

YaYa's Funhouse said...

Darla, Thanks for stopping by. I love to have visitors and comments. Your flowers are absolutely beautiful. I can only imagine what your garden will look like this summer.
Come back soon.

Dani said...

So pretty!

It's very cheerful and colorful compared to here. Our Spring trees are blooming but no perennials or annuals. You know I like that Spider Flower. I planted 4 different kinds and just noticed a few peeking their heads out of the ground.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh My Darla, Hope the weather doesn't damage your beautiful flowers. We have had about 1/2 inch of snow--but I covered everything I could and brought potted plants and hanging baskets to the garage. There are some limp tulips and Daff's this morning--so I don't know if they'll come back or not. Oh--that MEAN Mother Nature!!!!

Our Clematis is just getting started. Hope this freeze won't kill it...

That's neat to have a cutting from your Mom's climbing rose bush... Special!!

Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Everything is looking good! I am going to bring in some of my plants tonight because it is going to freeze... I can't believe it but hopeful this will be the last cold spell.

momstheword said...

So you totally know what I'm talking about, lol!!!

Love your flowers. They are gorgeous. I love diathus, it's one of my favorite flowers!

Your Cleome is pretty too. I keep wanting to plant it but haven't yet.

Rusty in Miami said...

Nice collection of flowers, I specially like the clematis. Good luck with the cold front, we are getting temp in the mid 40’s tonight, but I am not worry

Teresa said...

Hi Darla,
Thank you for the info on my azalea. Have a beautiful day!

Becca's Dirt said...

Darla you have some good looking stuff growing there. Doesn't it feel good to see new growth. Have a good day. I hope it doesn't get as cool as last night. We were in the mid to upper 30's this AM and I hope that is it for the cold. I am sure you all experienced the same front.

Sugarplum Cottage said...

I cannot believe you already have coneflowers bloomin'. I may need to move a little more South. Hugs, Rosemarie

Jean said...

I certainly hope your 'cold' doesn't damage anything. All your plants do so well and the colors are beautiful. I know spring will be here sometime but I'm really ready NOW! Jean

Dirt Princess said...

You have such great colors in the garden. I love your clematis. I planted one very similar to it...who knows may be the same type. Looks like you have a beautiful garden. I like the hot lips!

Sue Jackson said...

WOW, you have an absolutely incredible garden! Looks like you have lots of room as well. Thanks for sharing.
Take care, Sue

Rosemarie said...

Welcome back! I just read this and your last post and I like the Tiny Tim the bestest. Cute!

I think we need some more wide shots again soon - I want to see your property all lit with splashes of color!

Aiyana said...

Is that your lawn in the background in the Hypoestes photo? It is sure lush and beautiful! All the flowers look great. You always have such a large variety to show.

You certainly have a green thumb. What lovely flowers!
Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on my front door.

perennialgardener said...

Beautiful blooms this week Darla! I love that Clematis, do you know the name of it? It looks very similar to my Nelly in it's coloring. That's nice that you have one of your Mom's roses in your garden. :)

Shellmo said...

So many beautiful blooms! I really like those climbing roses! How many different varieties of flowers do you have in your yard anyways?!! :-)

Leedra said...

It is Dogwood Winter in east Tennessee. My coneflower is just beginning to peep through the mulch.

Darla said...

Shellmo: You wouldn't believe it if I told you, probably 150 easy!!

Femin Susan said...

Great shots! Surprised seeing the number of flowers blooming.
cheers!

Valerie said...

Beautiful, as always. I heard Vicki while laying in the hospital bed to get her seeds that she had planted inside out of the cold tonight. I asked her were those the seeds Darla sent you and she said yes. I thought that was so precious that she thought of that in all her pain and drugged up like she is. Keep her in your prayers.

Nancy said...

My baby clematis are just beginning to crawl up the trellis' and I'm so excited. I think these might make it!

Elizabeth-Plain and Simple said...

Beautiful flowers. You are way ahead of us here in Alabama. Thanks for sharing them.

Blessings,
Elizabeth

George said...

A rose and clematis in bloom! I'm a little jealous because we're weeks away from either. But they -- and all your other flowers -- are beautiful.

artis1111 said...

I was looking at a seed catalog and they had a green cone flower. I think I will get one for next year.Kathy

Red said...

Lots and lots of flowers already :) We're getting a few more every day. THe winter and early spring ones are fine, and the summer ones are about 3 weeks away. I'm surprised you already have your coneflower budding!

Kylee said...

Darla, your Sweet William is gorgeous. I love the red and pink together! Well, everything is pretty, but I especially like that. :-)
