It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

 Welcome!
After more hot dry weather we are finally getting some much needed rain.  I think it will need to rain for a week to get the ground where it should be but every little bit helps.
 The trumpet vine is going crazy this year!
 It is full of these bright orange blooms.  The hummingbirds love it and I swear I'm going to get a picture one of these days.  Which ever side I sit on, with camera in hand, they decide to go on the back!
 The perennial Sweet Peas are doing well on the lattice.
 Can you tell what's under this huge mound of Sweet Peas?
 Believe it or not there is an overturned rusty wheelbarrow under that bloomin' mess!
 Most of the Cone Flowers are also bloomin' this week.  I have Mystical White Mist,
 Magnus
 Ruby Star
 Harvest Moon
 Big Sky Sundown
 Big Sky Sunrise
 Double Orange
 Double Pink
and my newest, Big Sky Solar Flare. It is actually darker than it looks in this picture.
That's about all that's bloomin' here in Western New York.  What's bloomin' where you are planted?
You know the drill, name and permalink  plus a link to this post on your post.

I love your different color echinacea. They are so beautiful. I have two new ones this year, and can't wait until they bloom.

Hi Jean,

I have a lot of the same coneflowers. All of your blooms are gorgeous, especially Sundown and Harvest Moon. Thank you for hosting.

Delightful flora array. Please send the rain my way. We are so in need of a good soaking. Storm clouds everyday, for a week, but not a drop of moisture on the ground. f

Love your collection of coneflowers! I never knew they came in so many beautiful colors!

Gorgeouse, gorgeous coneflowers! I love the variety and I am so jealous that you get hummingbirds. I have to plan some flowers around attracting them to our garden.

"Solar flare" describes our weather here -- 100s for weeks and more on the way. Your flowers are beautiful.

Jean we too got a little rain but need so much more, Love all your coneflowers..

Mary-Frances said...

Jean, I can't believe your coneflowers are blooming already! They look fabulous. They only bloom in the fall here in Calgary. Love the mass of sweetpeas too.

Beautiful, beautiful Coneflowers!!! I am trying to get a variety of them too, but between the rabbits and aster yellows, it has been a challenge. I bought a double pink one last year, and I'll have to keep an eye on it next year...this year, it's not looking good. Thank you for sharing your beautiful blooms!!

I love trumpet vines!

Darla said...

What a great collection of coneflowers....

Yay for your rain...and your blooms! Love that you've covered the wheelbarrow with flowers :-)

Lavender Cottage said...

Sharing our gardens can certainly give one ideas. I'm going to put sweet peas on the lattice under our deck to hide the ugly, faded wood. Why didn't I think of that?
Thanks for hosting.

What beautiful coneflowers and you have so many. Love them all especially the doubles. Uncover the wheelbarrow and get some dirt and seeds in it. It will be fabulous.

Thanks for hosting. I took a few pictures of my favourite blossoms and scenic views on my trip up island this week.

I like your echinacea, Jean and I can identify with your "mess" (or was that "mass" of perennial sweet peas - I have them too.
