Bloomin' Tuesday: 08/18/2009

My pond plants overfloweth...literally...

This cool bush/tree, is blooming, I dug it up from a local lake,
We call them button bushes, they grow wild around our lakes,

These two surprised me coming up from seed

I'm always happy to see their return each year!

Because I didn't keep the tags with my Lantanas,
I don't know which is a big upright plant, or a mounding one.
So, time will tell if they are in the right spot or not.

Pink Turk's Cap

I don't know what this yellow blooming ground cover (behind the fleece flower) is,

It grows so well, and has such glossy leaves, then random cheery yellow blooms...

My poor crepes were dying of neglect in the flowerbed, so I re-potted them.
They rewarded me with blooms:)
Nothing like a little care, might even do well with a little trimming too:)

I guess it is almost Autumn, you see my Autumn Joy Sedum is getting ready to bloom...

Have a wonderful Bloomin' Tuesday!
I'm joining MsGreen "thumb" Jean for Bloomin' Tuesday! Come join in or see others!

Cool and cloudy--from the looks of your photos. Wish I was there! The only plant I'm really familiar with is the lantana, which is plentiful around here.

Jean said...

Lots of bloomin' going on! I love the Lantana. I didn't get any this year. It's an annual here. Jean

Carla, Beautiful flowers, I love the angel. I am not familiar with Bloomin Tuesday, so I will check it out.

I see that you have amaranth as a surprise visitor too! I let mine grow this year. It's supposed to be a grain, but I wouldn't know how to go about grinding it. Lovely garden!

You have lots of pretty flowers in your garden. I especially like the crepes. You were rewarded with lots of blooms!

Beautiful as always! I love to look at your garden. I'm growing a bunch of weeds this year :) It just got too hot for so many of our plants.

At least most of my peppers made it through, and of course I'm still growing the boys.
