It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome to another Bloomin' Tuesday! I just have a little this and that this week. We have been getting quite a bit of rain so the lawn and garden are looking up.




After last weeks post I'm sure you will all understand a new purchase.




Cone-fections Hot Papya Coneflowers from Lowe's. Don't you love the color?
Some of my orange phlox (sorry, can't find the tag so I don't know the name) among the Black-Eyed-Susans.




The Cosmos, some from seed and some I bought, are looking good. I won't deadhead them at all because I want them to reseed.




My red, white and blue garden was a little off this year. The red dianthus is gone now that the White Clips, Carpathian Harebell and the blue Summer Gentian are blooming.





The rain and cooler weather seems to have revived the blanket flowers in the 'garage garden'.




The Coreopsis Big Bang Redshift is just getting started on the other end of this area.




I love the red and yellow combo!








That's what's bloomin' in Western New York! I'm anxious to see what you all have going on!
