Where did this week go?
Time does pass by fast with a rogue gnome to deal with.
We have taken Bilbo on a tour this week and later
on I believe the little gnome is going to get a reality
check so do not miss the further tales of Bilbo the
Traveling Garden Gnome.
Join us with our hostess Tootsie
at Tootsie Time and flaunt your flowers with us.
Since this is Friday I cannot wait to flaunt some
blooms that are showing now.
This old iris was here when we moved here
about forty years ago. It has been divided a number
of times and moved around. You know me and moving.
It now is in its final bed along the woods.
I can hear you all say, “sure”.
Anyway I have no name for this beauty but its
light purple blooms are wonderful.
This iris is called ‘Oreo” and it was planted
just last fall so its going to be a new bloom
in the woodland bed.
I was hoping for a darker shade of blue and not
the purple but maybe it will deepen as it matures.
The roses are starting early this year and Knockout
“Rainbow” has one bloom open amongst its many
buds. I love this rose because its blooms are all a little
different at times and range from colors of pink, peach,
orange with a yellow center.
The red roses which grow along the side of the garage and
which were suppose to be “Ebbtide” may just be “Lasting Love”
instead. Isn’t Ebbtide roses a darker shade of burgundy?
It is just loaded with blooms and will be beautiful again
this year trellised vertical against the garage.
These purple pansies in one of the window boxes is doing
quite well and spreading nicely.
The two other Rhododendrons are now starting to bloom.
With more blooms to follow.
Meet “Silvermoon” Clematis
For you shade gardeners Silvermoon will bloom
in your shady beds. It is hard to tell the color in these
pictures but its blooms are silvery with a hint of
“Crimson Star” Clematis
This beauty is getting some years on it now and
it just looks better every year. Its only downfall
is that it blooms in a mad flush in spring and does
not get anymore blooms afterwards, or at least
it doesn’t here in my garden.
And to end the blooms is Columbine
”Rose Barlow” pink.
She is just starting to open her blooms.
I love columbine blooms but some tend to hang
their heads and the Barlow series do.
Everyone flaunt those flowers.
Happy Gardening Everyone !!
Until Next Time,
