Bloomin' Tuesday...

It's time for Bloomin' Tuesday over at Jean's place. Just click on the Bloomin' Tuesday Banner to the lower right for more beautiful blooms.
New Guinea Impatiens, Begonias, Torenia, Sweet Potato Vine and Daff stems that haven't died back.
Impatiens with Hypoestes (Pink Blush)
Update on my first ever Aloe bud.

Hypoestes that came back from last year with some Crinum Lilies.

Second showing for the Double Knockout Roses.
Tall Marigolds with Lambs Ear.

Same Marigolds, Blue Bedder Salvia and Double Daylily.

Guara (Whirling Butterflies)

Dahlberg Daisy, Vinca, Zinnia, Phlox and Liriope.
Geranium with a piece of Potato Vine that apparently fell in the container when I was pruning the Potato Vine in the container above it.

Cleome
A mess!
Morning Glory

Homestead Verbena, Potato Vine, Blackeyed Susan Vine and a Sunflower to the left.

Four O'clock that I believe blooms at 4 in the morning!

Butterfly Bush
Susans
Fantasy Zinnias, Purple Coneflowers

This Hyacinth Bean Vine is huge.......no blooms yet. The one in the shade is blooming though.

Royal Carpet Alyssum with Potato Vine, this hangs over the banister on our side porch.

Can't wait until my Amaranthus get big so I can show it off!

Now come on and get over to Jean's!

Love your pictures this week. The hypoestes next to the impatiens is so pretty. Also that aloe plants looks so healthy and I can't wait to see the blossom.

Gardeness said...

Holy smokes! So many gorgeous blooms. The aloe is awesome, especially. It's always intriguing when those plants send up flower stalks. Beautiful garden.

Jamie and Randy said...

What wonderful blooms! You garden must be quite a show place right now.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi there Flower Lady, I'm still amazed to see the Aloe flower shoot. I had no idea they even bloomed!!!!

Your potato vine made its way into several of your plants/flowers, didn't it?????

Love the butterfly bush...
Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

I love seeing your garden pictures! You have such a wide variety. I keep seeing torenia this year at the nursery, but don't think I ever have before. Is it newer or is it just me? :)

Deb said...

Tracey said...

Beautiful blooms! Very colorful!!! :)

Dorothy said...

Oh My! You have one of everything!
I didn't know Aloes would bloom! Yours must be very happy. You should charge a fee and give tours of your yard!

tina said...

Your garden is such a joy. I really like how you have your gaura displayed. It is really a shrub and looks great by itself. I moved one last year and now it's by itself and doing okay.

Marissa's Flower Patch said...

I just love your photos! Thanks so much for sharing! I wish I lived in Florida where some annuals actually have a CHANCE of surviving winter :) Keep up the good/hard work!

Roses and Lilacs said...

You have so many lovely plants. Many of them I can grow here but not all. The butterfly bush is so pretty. That I can't grow because the Japanese beetles eat the blooms.

Frances said...

Hi Darla, I like the mess the best of all! It is high summer in your garden, hooray for the feet in the air shots in the pool too, I love it!

Libby Murphy said...

What a lovely collection of flowers and plants. I wouldn't take anything for my aloe or double knock out roses. Your garden shows lots of love and time spent nurturing it.

Denise said...

Wow, so many gorgeous flowers. I have enjoyed catching up. Have a great week.

Tootsie said...

have I told you that I am jealous??? my gardens are suffering from Mother Nature going into menopause...hot as heck...then cold as heck...snow frost....cloudy days...hot flash cold flash ...moody B**ch! lol

Susie said...

Gosh your gardens are looking so wonderful Darla. Can't wait to see the aloe bloom. Don't remember ever seeing that before.

I just came in from the garden a while ago. I was out there planting two variegated white gaura. This is the first white I have had.

Rosemarie said...

Hey!!!!

I want my entire front lawn to look like that first picture. The area where I tore up the old dead mums is still empty - waiting for inspiration, I guess.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Your garden is growing in leaps and bounds. Wow, what amazing colors. The aloe is so big. I am use to some little potted ones :-) The knock out roses just never fail to put on a show. That is what I like about them, they pull there weight in the garden for color all season.

George said...

Thanks for all these great pictures from your garden. I think you have the greenest thumb I have ever seen.

Shellmo said...

I'm now convinced you should publish your own blooms magazine - you have such an abundance of gorgeous flowers!

Teresa said...

Darla, Darla, Darla! Holy canoli! So much to look at. That's a beautiful mess! Can hardly wait to see what that aloe does. But that Morning Glory is by far my favorite. Gorgeous!

Prospero said...

Two more things we both grow: New Guinea Impatiens and Aloes.

I think you'll enjoy growing aloes. There are a joy.

Jean said...

Great pictures this week. I love all your color combinations and I do love your 'mess'! Happy Tuesday! Jean

perennialgardener said...

Your blooms are fabulous this week Darla. The Aloe Bloom is exciting, keep up updated. :)

Valerie said...

Looks like I had some catching up to do with reading your posts! As usual your flowers just amaze me. Tornado? I hadn't heard. I am glad you are all ok. That sounded scary.

marmee said...

so many lovely things going on in your garden...really cool aloe bloom.

Elizabeth-Plain and Simple said...

Beautiful blooms as always. I did not know that aloe bloomed. Thanks for sharing this info.

Blessings,
Elizabeth

fishing guy said...

Darla: You put on a wonderful show from your garden, why everthing is looking so nice.

Jake said...

You have to watch that Ornamental Potato Vine, I have a purple one randomly coming up by the front walkway. When the only source of that plant is around back, it must have fell out of the landscape pick-up bins.

Jesikarena said...

Oh one day I do hope to have the assortment of flowers that you have! They are so beautiful!
