Bloomin' Tuesday: 08/25/09

This orange reminds me of summer.
It is doing great as a happy border bloomer.

I was not happy about finding my sun coleus burnt (not sure how) this morning,

But I was pleasantly surprised to see a bloom on my blackie sweet potato plant!!

Not very big, but a nice surprise:)

My little luna hibiscus plant is just blooming like crazy!

Mexican petunia finally blooming...


Wild Sunflower, I'm very pleased how well this is doing!
I pulled these up along the road side and started the seeds.
They grow in very poor sandy soil, so I didn't know if they would do well here.
So far they are on their second bloom, they have silvery leaves and cherry little blooms.

I was so glad this floss flower bloomed!
The plant was doing great and I could not remember what it was.
As soon as it bloomed, I remembered:)

I cut back the obedient plant blooms, I'm curious if I will get a second bloom this year.

You can really see the dragon wing fleece flower now.
The growth on this plant this year has been amazing:)
Have a wonderful Bloomin' Tuesday!

Lots of interesting blossoms at your place this Tuesday. I hope the orchids do well in their new environment -- I killed the one we got when DH was sick around Easter.

Hi Carla, What lovely blooms you have. I so envy that floss flower and don't have any as of yet. Some day. That potato vine flower is awesome! I've never seen one bloom so it is a nice surprise indeed.

Wow your garden is growing great. Very beautiful. You really have a green thumb. I don't have one much for flowers. But my vegetable garden is doing well this year. Have a great day. :)

Great plants, some of them I have never heard of. It looks like you have some darling little grands, too. There is nothing in the world like your very own grandchildren! Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog today, I really appreciate it! Hugs, Cindy S
