It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome to my western New York garden!First, I'd like to show one of my neighbor's blooms. It is a Peruvian daffodil. Her husband bought the bulbs at Walmart. This is the only one blooming so far. Isn't it beautiful? I love the yellow green center.

I don't know the name of this Iris. I got it free with a catalog order years ago.

They have really multiplied in the last couple years. They are only about 4 or 5 inches tall.

This azalea was here in bad shape when I bought the house. I love the double flowers and the coral color with the bright green leaves.

My pink phlox is doing a little 'creeping'.

I also have some wild phlox. These are growing in my wild garden so I just let them be.


The conditions must be just right for the thrift. It's blooming better than ever.
The coral bells in the shady garden are also blooming now. I don't see any sign of blooms on the burgundy ones yet.

This is the one bloom on my peony tree. I checked it in the morning and the sun was too bright to take a picture. We had 80+ temps that day and this is what it looked like by night. It really was beautiful. It's just not supposed to be that hot in spring! Another pic of some of the money plant. Some plants are still in flower but this one is already making seed pods.


Lastly, my clematis first bloom is gorgeous! The second blooming isn't usually as pretty.

I cut this way back last year because it was so tangled. Sure didn't seem to hurt it any.

That's all I have for today. I'm anxious to see what else is blooming around the country.

If you'd like to join the tour just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky and a link to this post on your post.

Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!

Edit: Mr Linky is having problems today. He was up earlier but you had to go to a different page to sign up. Hopefully he'll work soon but I'll keep this post up until it's worked out.

EDIT; Mr Linky has a server overload and they are trying to solve the problem. Since I'm not sure when and if it can be solved I am posting the links to Bloomin' Tuesday posts. If I missed you please leave a comment and I will add your link. Hopefully the problems will be solved by next week. Please, go visit!

Your garden is filled with beautiful blooms this month Jean. I love the Clemmie climbing on the old ladder and that unknown Iris is very pretty. Happy Bloomin Tuesday Jean! I should have my post up in about an hour. :)

What beautiful blossoms! I, too, love that clematis on the ladder! Can't wait until my peonies start blooming! Loved looking at all your beautiful blooms.

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Jean, I love all your blooms today. I too love that clematis climbing up that ladder! But I have to say, I keep going back to that picture of that daffodil. I have never seen one like it. It is very pretty!
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday

Great array of flowers. The Peruvian daffodil is so exotic looking. I love it! I also like the beautiful pink of the pink phlox.
