It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

We are in mid summer by the thermometer! The sun is shining and the temps are in the 80's during the day and major thunder storms during the night. Just what the plants want, sunshine and rain.
The large side garden is blooming with lupine, bachelor buttons and wild phlox.




This bunch of lupine is about in the center of this garden and is really putting on a show.




There is a sea of purple along the neighbors garage in the bed with the rusty wheelbarrow. This wheelbarrow came from a friend's camp the kids and I spent a lot of time at.

Purple Iris and wild columbine are adding all the beautiful purple shades. I have snow!

Snow in Summer, that is!





The Star of Bethlehem has popped up everywhere. This clump is under a Rose of Sharon in the middle garden. I don't believe I ever planted any but I'm always grateful for any volunteers.

If you'd like to show off your bloomers, just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky and add a link to this post on your blog. After a long holiday weekend we are all happy to sit with a cool drink and relax while touring your garden.
Sorry, I don't know what happened to Mr Linky but he's up now!

Beatiful Lupine.

I don't think I have ever seen wild purple columbine...very pretty.

I have Star of Bethlehem all over the place, too. That is one rampant multiplier!

Darla said...

Love the Lupine!! I have snow in summer for the first time here, no blooms on it yet.

I love, love, love your Lupines. They don't seem to like my weather so I'll just have to enjoy yours Jean. :)

Your flowers look great Jean! Into the mid 90's here for the last 3-4 days, don't know if the plants are happy about it or not:@)

It sounds very warm for The Star of Bethlehem to be in flower, ours appeared earlier this year before the heat arrived
