It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

 I'm sorry to say that after 6 years, this will be my last Bloomin' Tuesday.  It has become a chore instead of a joy lately.  I'm not able to spend much time in my gardens because of the unbearable heat we are experiencing.  I'm also discouraged because living in the city, I never expected to deal with deer eating all my day lily buds.  I feel this meme is no longer what it was intended to be, just everyday gardeners showing their blooms, not bloggers joining several memes to get more readers.

Thanks to all that have participated over the years!  It's been fun!
You know the drill!

It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Sorry about last week, I totally forgot!
I got this Josephine Asiatic Lily for my birthday.
I've never seen such large blooms! 
Campanula, Bellflower 

 Campanula,  Pink Octopus
Oak Leaf Hydrangea
Astrantia Major, Lars
There is a wheelbarrow under those sweet peas. 
Lastly, we went on a garden tour last week and saw this plant.  No one knew what it is.  Do you?

Bloomin' Tuesday!

 My front garden with the trellis is looking pretty good.  I made the trellis from wrought iron porch posts. I've planted a couple Clematis on it, a summer bloomer and a fall bloomer.
 Cranesbill geranium are another favorite of mine.  They always fill in so nice and bloom all season.
 This grass has cute little blue flowers on the tips of it.  It does pop up all over and seems to grow even in full shade.
 I love this new Splish Splash Cranesbill I just got. It's mostly white but there is purple here and there.  Sometimes a whole petal and sometimes just a 'splash'.
 My 'wild' garden is getting pretty wild!  Right now there are mostly daisies, yellow loosestrife and Red Huckster (actually white blooms with red stems) blooming.
 I love this dark burgundy dianthis.  Another Cranesbill behind it.
 They are in my middle garden along with foxglove and pink thrift. 
 Along the walkway I planted 3 Cranesbill.  One is doing well but it seems the deer like the blue and the light  pink.
Well, that's what's bloomin' where I am.  What's bloomin' where you are?  Add you name and permalink to Mr Linky and a link to this post on yours to join the tour.

It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

We are still having weird weather.  Today is rainy and cool.  Yesterday was 80 and sunny, Saturday  was cloudy and 60's.  One thing about rain then heat, the plants are growing like crazy!
 I love Foxgloves and they are beautiful in my center garden.
 The plants have never been this huge.  The only other bloom is the Spiderwort right now.
 Foxgloves certainly do get around!
 I didn't plant this one in the front of my shade garden,
 or this one in the shade garden,
 or these on the side of the house,
 or this one in the wild garden,
or these,
or even this one in my front sidewalk garden.  I know it's not their fault that I don't have the heart to pull them out.  Looks like time to do some transplanting!
The Siberian Iris are blooming this week
 and so are the Peony
  and one Knockout Rose.
