Bloomin' Tuesday...

Just a few blooms today, tomorrow is when I do my monthly progress of my flower bed. I started in February. Should see some big changes!
Phlox--annual star, mixed colors Red Poppy
Dark Orange Poppy
Dark Pink Cosmos

Pink Cosmos with a dark center
Hanging container of Homestead Verbena with a small container of Ornamental Potato Vine, that's the Blackeyed Susan Vine on the lattice behind the potato vine.

Still watching this Susan
Not only do I have a Yellow Calla up in my 3 year old PINK Calla bed.....
I also have a double Calla????

The prettiest bloom of all today....our baby graduated from elementary school this morning....sigh.. No more elementary children or purchasing Childrens Tylenol....

That Susan is really like-um-weird! And congrats to the new graduate. Transitioning from elementary school to junior high is most exciting!

Bren said...

I love following your blogger... your flowers are amazing! My daughter heads to HIGH SCHOOL next year so hold on to these days... they go by so fast!

Thank you for stopping by my blog dear garden friend. I use the Google/ Picasa program to create my collages. The program is free and EXTREMELY easy to use. Check them out and don't be afraid to ask me any questions you may have about it.

Darla, your flowers are interesting especially the susan, loks conjoined.
Your daughter is cute, mine will spend her last year in Elementary next year. Then time will move much faster. sniff

Grace Peterson said...

What is in your soil, Darla? LOL

The double calla is amazing. Wouldn't it be great if it were to keep doing this? And the lone yellow, how entertaining.

I'm not so sure about that Susan, however. It looks rather ominous. :)

Congrats on the graduation! They grow up soooo fast!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Your baby is all grown up, Darla. Love that picture of her with her proud Daddy.

Beautiful flowers. I'm sure there is a HUGE difference since February.

Have a great one.
Hugs,
Betsy

You've got some beautiful blossoms in your garden. But you're right -- the prettiest bloom is in your last picture.

Darla: What wonderful blooms, I'm getting closer to having flowers.
Congrats to the youngest, its always a big step.

Frances said...

Hi Darla, congrats to your sweet girl, what a lovely young lady. The guy's not bad either. You have some strange stuff happening in your garden. That susan is almost scary! I like the double calla however. :-)

Laurie and Chris said...

Great blooms!!

gardenerprogress/Catherine said...

Is that your muppet flower?
Your daughter is so cute, it must be bittersweet having your youngest finished with elementary school. Next year will be my oldest daughter's last year of elementary school, I'm already sad about it.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

What a weird bloom on Susan. Your calla lilies are still so pretty.

Jean said...

Poppies and cosmos, two of my favorites. Love the cosmo with the dark center. Congrats to your baby! Jean

Susie said...

She's really cute Darla. I bet she's glad to leave elementary school.

Lovely blooms as always. That is certainly an interesting rudbeckia you got there.

Dave said...

That is probably the weirdest blackeyed Susan I've seen! A Siamese Susan? Congrats on your daughters graduation. Middle school is lots of fun!

Sue said...

Congratulations to your youngest!

You are a true collector to have more than one color of your flowers. I love them!

Kathleen said...

Congrats on your daughter's graduation from Elementary school Darla ~ sometimes I wish my daughter was still that age tho! I really had to look at that susan photo ~ that is amazing ~ like a flower sandwich! Same with the double Calla ~ I haven't seen either of such things!

Kristin said...

Your garden and flowers are amazing! Holy cow, I have a desert compared to yours!

My baby will be in 3rd grade. My older 2 are college students. I'm treasuring my baby's elementary days. I'll never see them again...unless I'm blessed with grandchildren!

Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods!

Marsha said...

congrats to your DD! I had to LOL at the not buying children's tylenol comment...too cute.

You have such beautiful blossoms right now - I especially like the light pink cosmos with the dark center.
