Now In Bloom


Seems I had a busy day and missed Fertilizer
Friday so I will just show some of the plants that
are in bloom this morning.


Coreopsis Limerock Ruby is getting its first blooms.
I have just learned that this coreopsis that was listed
as good to zone 5 has now been moved to zone 8 after
I bought it. This may be its first and last year to bloom
in my garden then.



Daylily Prairie Blue Eyes
Someone tell me what this lily has to do with blue at all?



Elodie Asiatic Double Lily



Blue Chip Campanula carpatica Balloon Flowers



Blue Bird Delphinium'



Echinacea Summer Sky does not look like the pictures
in the catalogs proclaimed it in my garden.



The Elderberries are blooming along the woods
and they smell so good.



The Lantana has came out of it winter slumber
and is starting to bloom also.


Yellow Asiatic Lily



Blue Lobelia



Missouri Primrose Oenothera speciosa Siskiyou



Monarda Pink Bee Balm



Penstemon Iron Maiden



Petunia Double Burgundy Cascade


Happy Gardening and Everyone Have
a Wonderful Weekend!

What a lot of blooms, Lona! I have to pick up my jaw from the floor where its drooling all over the place!

So many lovely blossoms. I sighed when I saw Limerock Ruby - alas no more in my zone 5B garden. Wonder if it is one of those you should leave in the pot, pry it up and toss it in the garage over winter - it's so pretty.

All are beautiful but that Burgundy Petunia is gorgeous.

So many blooms, so many colours! Beautiful post, I'm rather envious ;).

Bernie said...

You've got lots of pretty blooms in this collection of photos ... I particularly like the lilies and that gorgeous burgundy petunia.

Lona I just love looking at your flowers - the picture of perfection. I almost forgot FF too until I noticed someone elses. Dang it's hard loosing my mind. LOL

Your blooms are beautiful! I have very little blooming, as our Texas summer doldrums are now here to stay. And the plants aren't happy with the extreme heat.

Ah...sweet treats for us garden lovers. Beauty all around.


Gatsbys Gardens said...

Lona, I have Prairie Blue Eyes also and you are right it has nothing to do with blue.

Beutiful, I love that pink double lily!

Jeannie B. said...

Pretty , Pretty flowers and beautiful photographs. Thanks for telling what they are!

Stephanie said...

My lantana is similar to yours. The plant has finished its shower of flowers now. I try to post the flower next time when the plant flowers again.

Love the Elodie Asiatic Double Lily.. the flowers so sweet!

Beautiful blooms, Lona. BTW, I think the relationship of 'Prairie Blue Eyes' to blue is similar to the relationship of 'Limerock Ruby' to zone 5. Just as a Limerock Ruby plant once wintered over successfully somewhere in zone 5, a Prairie Blue Eyes flower once opened that, in the right light, looked sort of blue (well, maybe violet). -Jean

Love the petunia. IMHO, anything can be improved on if you add more petals and ruffles:)

Had to laugh at your comment about Prairie Blue Eyes. I have a strange brownish daylily too. No idea what it was supposed to have been but I certainly didn't buy a brown daylily on purpose.

You have so many beautiful blooms there Lona, it is hard to choose a favourite! But I do always fall for blues and that balloon flower is just delightful!

Becca's Dirt said...

Beautiful blooms. Stunning petunia Double Burgundy Cascade. Love all of your blues. Blue seems to be popular this year. I have a lot of blues too. Have a good day.

Lona, lovely June Garden! I especially enjoyed your velvety blues!

Ami said...

Lona: You have so many beautiful blooms! I especially love the different kind of lilies you are showing. I never saw Petunia Double Burgundy Cascade before, just gorgeous!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

I always enjoy your flower garden photos, Lona. Such lovely blossoms!

Green Iris said...

The Prairie Blue Eyes...I wonder about the choice of name too. My daughter has some of these. They are very pretty, but definitely no blue!
