What’s Blooming in My Garden This Week

There’s a lot blooming and growing in the garden this week….I just love this time of year!

 

This Rose de Rescht is my favorite rose of all time.  I dream of someday having a garden totally dedicated to Old Garden Roses.

When I first bought this house there were butterfly weeds all throughout the one side flowerbed….they finally migrated over to the front bed much to my happy surprise.  The coneflowers have been big time spreaders….I started with just three plants in one area of the flower bed and they have worked their way throughout three of my front yard flowerbeds.

I got this single mum plant from my niece and nephew years ago when they were little…they are both now full grown and so is this mum….from one small little plant to this huge bush-like beauty!

More coneflowers.………………

Rosemary in a vintage enamel pot {a gift from a dear friend} and ….more coneflowers ~ even though these {I assume} are from the same plants as the others they are of a deeper pink color and seem a bit prettier to me…more intense…love them!

Yellow daylilies.…I didn’t see these blooming in time to get a better picture…they are on the side of my house that seems to be ignored…at least by me.

Hollyhocks ~ when I bought these years ago…well, I thought I was buying foxglove….I have never been able to grow foxglove…I have tried, tried, tried…so I guess I will just settle for my personal foxglove impersonator….this dainty little hollyhock.

When I had the pool and the pool deck I used to have meandering morning glory up the posts, across the top and throughout the lattice.  I haven’t had a good morning glory display in a few years but had the thought to place a pot with seeds behind my red garden ladder and they seem to be happy and are trailing their way up the ladder.

Lone sunflower started from seed by my little guy….he checks on it everyday.  We can’t wait for it to bloom.

Potted tomatoes and some lamb’s ear wandering into the lawn.

I hope this green pepper plant produces more than one pepper!

Fresh mint to add to my Southern Sweet Tea and maybe even try my hand at mint julep syrup!

And last but not least lemon verbena for some homemade soap.

  1. wow there is some serious beauty in your backyard! thanks for the lovely images…
    malia´s last blog post ..Crafty Soiree #98: Simple Summer Pleasures

  2. That is all so beautiful. Sadly, our weather (the wind) doesn’t allow for flowers to grow, but I’m with you on loving roses. *All* your flowers are beautiful, but I think there is nothing in the world quite like a rose that’s just about to open.

  3. Your yard is beautiful! I miss Hillihocks. My Aunt Odessa always had them on her farm. I also miss Morning Glories because my Mom had them growing outside our house while I was growing up in Texas.
