It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

It's bloomin' thyme!
A purple clematis with the dark pink geranium planted in front.
A closeup.
These carnations are really more purple than they look here.
My Knockout Rose is knockin' out the blooms.
A newer perennial Veronica, Royal Candles.
This is definitely a new favorite.
Centaurea Dealbata with an added critter. I've had this in my 'wild' garden for several years now and it's almost a bush.
The 'wild' garden. Yellow loosestrife. Back left, daisies, middle, Beard tongue, Red Huckster (the stems are red), right, light pink cranesbill geranium.
Bottom middle, dragonfly made from silverware.

Bloomin Thyme, lol. Good pun Jean. ;) My Thyme is blooming right now too, forgot to get a pic. Darn! I love that Loosestrife, is it aggressive?

Jean said...

The yellow loosestrife is pretty aggressive but I think it's worth it. It always blooms and stays blooming for a couple weeks. I just dig some out every few years. I will be getting rid of some this fall.

I enjoyed visiting your blog. My friend Alyssa linked with her garden pictures last week and I enjoyed looking last week so thought I would join in this week.

Suzanne said...

Beautiful blossoms this week, Jean. That fabulous picture with the added critter is wonderful!

Hi Jean,
I came here to get the link to your blog, and found the name of a couple of my plants, one the veronica, and the other the loosestrife. Mine hasn't spread too far, but I do pull it out when it spreads farther than I want it to.

Those carnations sure are pretty!

The loosestrife is striking! I am overwhelmed with all of the beautiful flowers you have blooming right now!

Mumsy said...

You have such a beautiful garden with so many pretty flowers. Gorgeous pictures!

CosmoGirl Carla said...

Hi Jean! Found your blog through another blog I visit. So glad to find more gardening blogs through your linky party. Thanks for hosting this each week. Can't wait to go on my own "garden tour" of those linked up with you.

Your flowers and gardens are amazing! Thanks for great inspiration.

Darlene said...

I love that arch with the clematis and I see why you are lovin' those Royal Candles....GORGEOUS!!! Your wild garden is fabulous. Hope you have a GREAT Tuesday. We finally got some rain that we needed.♥

Bonnie said...

That is a gorgeous clematis. I just love the color!

Beautiful Jean. I love Veronica and the clematis is stunning. Have a good day. Becca

Dee said...

Thank you for hosting a great meme. Sorry if I break any rules, but I love to take pics of other gardens since I don't have one yet. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the royal candles, I wonder if they would do well in the desert. Thanks again!

Grandmother Wren said...

A lovely meme and a lovely garden!
Thank you, Jean -
I'm going to enjoy watching all these gardens grow.

Zoey said...

Oh, my, that Veronica looks spectacular. I planted "Sunny Border Blue" in one of my containers, but yours looks so much better. How many years have you had it?

The foxgloves you sent me finally bloomed. I was so excited! There were two plants that bloomed. Both were pink. They were very tiny, though. The flower was only about 4 inches tall. I think it was because I moved them earlier in the spring.

Deb said...

Hi Jean, I'm just feeling well enough to catch up on your blog and a couple of Bloomin' Tuesdays. Your flowers, as always, are magnificent! (I was in the hospital a week and now have been home recuperating and will be for 6 weeks. i may be scarce participating in Bloomin' Tuesday until i get my strength back, but it will be good to see what's blooming all over.)

I also saw on another post about some foxglove seeds in the fall. I would love some as I don't have any foxglove blooming. I'll try and find your address once this comment is posted.
