Bloomin' Tuesday!

First, I need to take care of family business and wish my daughter, Laurie, of Chris and Laurie a very Happy 38th Birthday!! Welcome to another Bloomin' Tuesday. If you would like to join us this week just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky at the bottom of this post. You must join weekly so there is no pressure to post every Tuesday. Please, remember to add a link back to the list in your post. If you don't add the link only people who come to my blog will see the list. More info and a button for your blog can be found by clicking the button on my sidebar.
This is a twice blooming clematis and it's really nice this year.
It climbs up this old ladder on my shed.
This pink azaela is right next to it. These are the flowers in my Bloomin' Tuesday button. The clematis snuck into the azaela last year. I moved it over a couple feet in the fall.
Mullein (verbascum) are another of my favorites. I love the soft peachy one.
Snow-in-summer.
Daisies are popping up with the pink and purple wild columbine.
Purple wood hiacinths.
I can't remember what these are called. The leaves look like skinny dandelions and they open in the evening and bloom all night. The blooms die the next morning. They look simular to evening primrose but the leaves are totally different.
Lastly, a spilled bucket of soapwort.
Click on the list of names below to see what else is blooming in blogland or sign up and show us what is blooming where you are planted.

The flowers are lovely. I love climbing flowers. I am planting morning glories soon. I hope they grow big and strong before the rabbits eat them!

I thought the Bloomin' Tuesday photo was photo-shopped. Now I know differently! The azaelas and clematis are so beautiful individually, but together -- just incredible!

More beautiful flowers. I really love the Clematis, and the Soapwort looks interesting, as well as the purple wood hyacinths. My garden has a few things going--at least for a few more weeks!

My post is up, Jean! While I was filling in my name, the background changed! Zappo!
:)
Hope you are feeling better!

one more thing...
I forgot to mention the fabulous flowers in your garden! My place is still fairly green yet. We are the last place on the street to bloom. Not sure why that is.

Your clematis is gorgeous. It looks right at home going up that shed. I had never seen peach colored mullin, only yellow. So wonderful seeing what's blooming in other parts of the world.
Hugs, RoseMarie

I love the flowers coming out of the soap bucket the best! Very pretty. I have an old well bucket and I am eying it with this in mind now.

I added my name to the Linky and will link you to the site too. It isn't a show of flowers per say, but I use pics of flowers on that site all the time. If you prefer that I NOT do that since I am not posting specifically about flowers, let me know, OK? I'll understand!

Be blessed Jean.

Take care Jean.

You're garden is glorious! So much to see.......so much blooming. The clematis, the delphinium ....so amazing! I want to come walk in your garden with a glass of ice tea.

Hopefully I can play along next week ....truthfully, there isn't much going on this week with the garden. I am in the waiting game :-)

((hugs)) Rosie
