Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome to Bloomin' Tuesday! Today I'm going yellow and white. I keep saying I need more white in my garden but when I looked at my pictures I realized I had more than I thought.
(click on the pictures to enlarge)
These are from the evening primrose family. I forgot I bought them last year . I have light pink ones too that I've had for several years. They spread well but do not stay well in clumps. Peony
One of my favorites, daisies. Dahlia. I plant the short compact ones.
Dahlia. I use them as annuals.
Husker Red Digitalis. The "red" is at the base of the flower. Sun drops.
These are also in the evening primrose family.
Feverfew Another favorite. Indian Summer of the Black Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia ) family.
If you would like to join us this week and post what's bloomin' where you are planted, just put your name and blog address on My Linky. All I ask is that you also put a link on your blog back to this list so your readers can also enjoy our country wide garden tour.

I love your peonies. I don't know if they dont grow in my area (So. Cal) or not, but I haven't found them in any of the nurseries. I just don't do well growning plant from seed, so I have a "cheater" garden. This year I actually don't have any garden. So I'll need you to be comin' on over to B'z Place and make a pretty garden like yours. :) Have a great one!

I have to admit that I'm partial to my namesake! (Black Eyed Susan's) ;o) I love all your pictures this week -- there's something about white and yellow that is so cheery and happy! Love the dahlias! That's something I love about Bloomin' Tuesday -- I get to enjoy blooms that I don't have in my own garden! Thanks, Jean, for making it possible for us all to enjoy these wonderful gardens.

Thank you for the white blooms you have shared with me for my garden!!!!

My post is up with just three blooms from the Alaska Botanical Garden.

I shot a bunch more, but I know I could really bore people with too much Alaska!

Jean ~ I enjoyed seeing your pictures, especially the feverfew. I have that plant and never knew what it was. And I have evening primrose, too, but only in yellow. I didn't know they bloomed in white! Thanks for the info.
