Bloomin' Tuesday

We were spared the wrath of Isaac.  Overcast with rain on and off is all we have experienced so far.  Prayerfully we won't have any flash floods this afternoon. Along with all the rain we have received this summer have come the pesky, blood sucking, West Nile infected mosquitoes.  I spent less than 10 minutes outside this morning and was bitten on both my feet  The photos are blurry and slightly foggy from the humidity. Here is my contribution to Bloomin' Tuesday.
Cardinal Vine or Cypress Vine - I have recently learned there is a slight difference in the two.  The foliage is a little more feathery and the seeds a bit more slender on one, other than that no differences.  Either way the hummers enjoy both of them the same.   Invasive here, it will smother any plant close by.  You should keep an eye out when growing this "in" the garden.
Knockout Rose - Yellow....
Cordyline in the back left, this is it's third year here.  Cordyline  and blue Fescue grass in the container.  I love  Fescue.
The potato vine in winding it's way through all the plantings and containers in this garden. 
Grocery store rose.
Heirloom Coneflowers, forefront.  Turk's Cap has become more shrub like.  I will be taking cuttings to propagate over the winter as this plant is not only a  Texas Superstar , in my book it's a Florida Superstar.
When I planted this Juniper in the fall 2010 it was barely visible in the container.  It has grown faster in the container than the ones I planted in the ground.
 Firespike is looking good.  I have about 6 or so propagated  in this flower garden, there is also a couple of purple ones yet to bloom.  A gift from a fellow southern gardener. 
Still making jewelry..
Have a Blessed Day!

I just got some Cardinal Vine or Cypress Vine seeds from a fellow blogger. Planted a few, saving the rest for next summer. The few I sowed have taken off, hope it will bloom soon.
Glad you were spared Isaac, I pity New Orleans.

Gabby said...

I like your Turk's cap. All of your plants look fabulous. Stay safe!!!

Lois said...

I'm so glad Isaac moved away from us! By the way, the meme on my blog today was started by a friend of mine in Australia who likes to wander through cemeteries taking pictures. I guess that's what taphophile means. I had never heard of it before either!

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...

Love the cardinal flower- what a striking color!
I always love seeing confeflowers and roses!
I had some blue chip junipers once but they got so aggressive I ended up removing them. I never thought about planting something like that in a pot! It looks pretty cool though!

daisy said...

That cypress vine is so vibrant! Love the coneflowers!

Patsy said...

Hope you are feeling good and out of pain.

Zoey said...

I like that container that your shrub is in. The cypress vine has such a nice bold flower. Too bad it's invasive.

I am glad to hear that Issac did not cause too much damage. I hope New Orleans fares as well.

Jean said...

Lovin' all the color! The yellow Knock Out is lovely! I'm sure glad you missed the worst of the storm. Jean

Darla, as much as I love your flowers, and I do, I love to see your jewelery.

Those are amazing, I only wish I could wear jewelery, I would be snapping it up from your Etsy store.

Seems the whole world is suffering from feast or famine. Or flooding and drought. Glad you were spared the wrath of Isaac but it gave us the first really good soking in months.

Your garden is lovely. I keep saying I am going to plant some cornflowers. Perhaps next spring I will finally get to them.

Donna Heber said...

Hi Darla,

So glad to hear you were spared by Isaac. Your garden is beautiful and I'm so sorry to hear about the bad mosquitoes in your area. It is no fun trying to garden when you get bit. They love me too and I swell up when I get a bite.

Lisa @ My Omaha Garden said...

Thanks for stopping by my site. Hey, if you take some of our drought, we'll take some of your humidity.

~Gardener on Sherlock Street said...

My cardinal vine just started blooming. I'm hoping for a lot of those little red flowers. Glad Isaac wasn't any trouble for you.
Pretty treasures at the end. You sure make lovely pieces.

tina said...

We have mosquitoes bad too. It's been awful for them and we haven't even gotten much rain.

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Darla, Glad you were spared the worst of the storm. We need rain --so we hope to get a tiny bit from this storm.. It seems to be going all around us.

Not a fan of Knock-outs--but love your grocery store rose. Very pretty.
Hugs,
Betsy

Lona said...

That Firespike is just so pretty Darla. Never saw that one before. Your jewelry is just so pretty. I love what you are making now. Hope you do not get too much rain. If so send it up our way.
