It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome to another Bloomin' Tuesday!
We got a little rain this past week so some plants are looking better. It seems that the late summer plants are blooming earlier than normal.

The Rose of Sharon at the back of my middle garden is showing off it's double pink blooms. The cone flowers are still looking good in this garden.

The bright pink on the right is Lord Clayton Garden Phlox. The very back of this area is filled with globe thistle.

The side garden is a burst of yellow, orange and blue with the black-eyed-Susans, orange Crocosmia, and tall balloon flowers.

At the bottom of this hill of blooms is another Rose of Sharon. This one is very soft pink with a dark pink center.

I'm anxious to see every ones bloomers this week so grab a button, add your name and permalink to Mr. Linky and add a link to this post to your blog so we can see what's going on in your neck of the woods!

Your Rose of Sharon sure looks happier than mine!

Hi Jean, I enjoyed seeing your blooms. I love the phlox and globe thistle.

I am getting ready to go back to work full time, but wanted to join, which is good, because I found my "yard of the month" sign in the yard by going to see what was blooming, then chasing a bunny over to where the sign is.

Purple and yellow is one of my favorite combinations. Your garden looks amazing!

Zoey said...

Are your rose of sharon bushes in full sun? I planted one three years ago and it has never bloomed. I am thinking it needs more direct sun. That dbl pink one of yours makes a great backdrop for the other pink flowers. Very pretty area.

Rosemary said...

Every area in your garden is so full of colour... agree it does seem the garden is showing fall colours earlier this year.. my rose of sharon is starting to flower as is the buddleia. Hoping for more rain here too.

Roan said...

Your Rose of Sharon is glorious! You do have a beautiful garden.

Darla said...

What great combinations you have here, love the Phlox!
