It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome!
I have quite a few different plants in bloom this week so here we go.
Laurie gave me these Siberian Iris a few years ago. This is the first time they have bloomed. I moved them to a sunnier spot this spring so I'm guessing they like this spot better.

The white peony have also bloomed but they didn't last long because of the hard rain we have had.
The rock roses and cranesbill geranium are in a narrow area beside the driveway. Looks like I'll need to separate the geranium next year.
This lovely peachy dianthus is in the same area. I lost a few dianthus this year and I'm glad I didn't loose this one. I love the color.
This is the only lily blooming so far. It was really beautiful after the rain.
Holy foxglove!
The foxglove are amazing this year. This is where they were originally planted. They have spread to behind the iron crib fence and I dug out 5 large pots in front of this garden for the Audubon plant swap.
They spread to this garden last year so I moved them to the back and redid this area. I found some in my 'holding cell' and some in my wild garden this year.
I really do love them but enough is enough! If you're interested in seeds just send me an e-mail and I'll send you some in the fall.
This might be my favorite color but I really can't commit. LOL!
The details are awesome!
Now you've been on the tour thru my garden this week so show me yours. Just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky and add a link to this post on your blog. I appreciate all the newcomers and love seeing gardens from all across the country.

Love the foxgloves - so pretty. I also have that same cranesbill geranium. Wow, does it spread! We were given a tiny clump years ago - it definitely isn't tiny anymore.

I envy how prolific your Foxglove have been for you Jean. I've never been able to get them to last more than a couple of seasons in my garden. All your blooms are pretty, sorry about the rain ruining your Peonies. That happens here every spring just as they open. :(

I enjoyed looking at all of your flower pictures. I especially like the foxgloves and the lily.

Your flowers are so beautiful. My foxgloves are way behind yours, they aren't even budding yet. Thanks for the tour, your garden is great!

Your foxgloves are amazing. I really like that peachy dianthus, too. Don't you wish the lilies would stay bloomed all summer?

Wow, look at those lovely blooms! I thought my foxgloves were doing well, but look at yours; they are awesome! I like your crib fences, too.

You have so many beauties blooming. I am so in love with the foxglove you have. I would so love to have some. The seeds I planted didn't do anything. Gorgeous geranium. Love the garden art too.

Suzanne said...

Jean - thank you for having this weekly link up! Katrina encouraged be to join, so I'm posting real late (Wed afternoon), but I cheated and made the post appear to be on Tuesday, lol. I also love the picture of your garden! I'm very new to gardening, and planted over 15+ perennials this year so I can't wait to see how they bloom and grow. Happy gardening!
