It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

 Some of my plants in my front garden gave up on me this year so I had to replace them.
I found this interesting Campion, Druett's Variegated and since it will grow in part shade, decided this was a good place for it.
 I really like the Columbines, Clementine.  This light pink is in the front bed with some Hartswood Ruby Helianthemum
 The following 3 are in a side bed.  A darker pink,
 Clementine Red,
and, my favorite, Dark Purple.
 Lupine, Bachelor Buttons and Wood Hyacinths in the 'wild' garden.
 Purple Iris and wild purple Columbine in the bed next to the neighbors garage.
 A pink Azalea and a Clematis climbing the ladder against the shed. These are also pictured in this weeks button.
 Dark pink Thrift in the front border of the center garden.
 As those who have been with me for Bloomin' Tuesday awhile probably know that this is an all time favorite in my shade garden, Solomen's Seal.
 It grows to almost 5 feet tall and just keep spreading.
Lastly, I have no idea what the name of these tiny Iris is.  I've had them for several years and they just keep on bloomin'.
That's what's bloomin' in Western New York this week.  We had another cold week and possible frost for 3 nights which, luckily, I didn't get. What is bloomin' in your garden?  Add your name and permalink to Mr Linky below.  Please, add a link to this post on your blog.

Love your hostas!

Looking great! We are still mostly green mode here is Ontario (north of Toronto) Canada ... aside from the tulips which are now saying good-bye for the season. Really enjoyed the colour in your gardens. Thanks for hosting.

Jean, the Clementine Red and Dark Purple Columbines are colors I've never seen! I didn't know they bloomed in anything but pink! I love those!! Any chance you would have seeds? I didn't get out to snap photos for this week...I'm nursing a wisdom tooth extraction. ouch. Maybe visiting everyone's blog to see the lovely flowers will improve my mood! Thanks for hosting.
