It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Today I'm going to show you some random garden shots that I didn't get to post during the summer. Obviously, they are not blooming now but I didn't want to waste good photos.

This is my middle garden full of pinks. There are cone flowers, false mallow, phlox and dark pink Rose Campion.

False Mallow, Party Girl. Great self spreading, tall plant.

'Candy Stripe' Phlox

Garden Phlox against the iron crib 'fence'.

'Pixie Twinkle' Phlox

White Evening Primrose. Another aggressive spreading plant that I love.

Rose of Sharon

Allium

Cleome or spider plant

Lastly I had to show you the beautiful fall color of the Limelight Hydrangea. I trust I have given you a little glimpse of the summer past and a little hope for the eventually returning spring!
Add your name, state and permalink to Mr Linky if you would like to show us some bloomers, past or present, yours or your neighbors. Help yourself to a Bloomin' Tuesday button by clicking on the button on my sidebar or taking the one at the top of this post.
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!

I planted some Allium bulbs a few years back and I never saw them again (they were kinda expensive, too) but I just read an article about planting they very shallow, like iris. I'm going to try again, only not plant so deep. They most likely need good drainage too, which can sometimes be a problem in Oregon! Enjoyed your photos. Thanks for hosting this great party.

I don't blame you for wanting to share those photos of your garden this past summer. I love the combinations of pink you put together. Your Limelight looks fabulous, it is so full of blooms. I'll have my post up in the morning. :)

The candy stripe phlox is my favorite in this week's post. I've never seen those colors in phlox! Beautiful.

Good morning Jean, You've got some beautiful bloomers there. I love that 'Limelight' too!

Shirley said...

So much beauty in your garden. I like the pink theme with the candy stripe phlox and all. Cleome is an interesting plant I've never tried. Do you do anything to keep your evening primrose in check? I would love to try it again but don't want it to take over. Your blog is looking particularly festive. I look forward to seeing what you do in the winter with it. Have a nice day!

Hi Jean. I love your Fall background and header picture.
Your still have phlox. I like the Candy stripe. I do love my phlox but it is all about done for now along with the coneflowers. Yours still look so pretty. The Pixie Tinkle has such fun shaped petals. Wish I could smell them LOL! I love Rose companion and yours looks so pretty. Do you save the seeds? Would love to beg some from you or trade for some of my seeds.

Love the cleome Jean, and the pink phlox. Will have to remember some of the names come planting time next spring.

Paula said...

Your blooms still look great! Thanks for hosting this and sharing with us all the time. I know it takes a lot of work and dedication to do this. When is the last Blooming Tuesday?
