It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

 It's bloomin' thyme once again!
 The Knockout rose is knocking out blooms again this year.
 I don't know how this Siberian Iris ended up in the middle of my wild garden.  It is a little late to the party.
 I got this interesting new plant this year.  It's a Orchid Primrose.  The red on the bottom area is the bud coming out.  It turns into the top pic in a couple days.  (Click on pic to enlarge and get a better view.)
 The wild garden has more yellow this week.  The Sun Drops are open now.
 Can you believe this Fever Few in front of the shed is a volunteer? I think I need to get rid of some this year so I can get in the shed door!
 I'm very excited that I have a blossom on my Oak Leaf Hydrangea this year!
 The yellow Foxglove is blooming now. It is much smaller that the other colors.
This is a new purchase from Lowes.  It's a short version of the Cone Flower, perfect for the sidewalk garden.

Beautiful flowers! I'm just loving this time of year :) Thanks for the link party!

Lots of nice flowers blooming in your garden. I planted a dwarf coneflower called 'Pixie Meadowbrite' a couple of years ago and really like it.
One gardening friend has done a whole thyme lawn, it's pretty when in bloom.

I'm going to have to look for that little Coneflower...what a cutie. I'm having problems with asters yellow and hope I can nip it in the bud!

Good Morning, Jean! As always, your garden gives such beauty and inspiration. I love your shed, and how can a gardner not love those volunteers! I'm really liking that shorter version of Coneflower you have. I'll have to look for that.

Thanks again for hosting this week. I always love visiting others' gardens!

Hi Jean, I especially love your shed! Feverfew does seem to come up just anywhere doesn't it?! But yours is delightful right by the shed to greet you. And I would be proud of that blooming oak leaf hydrangea, too!

I picked up a small shoot from a classified ad last year. It leafed out and was looking healthy until deer nibbled it to the quick. So I covered it with chicken wire--ugly but reliable. This year I used round-up to kill some grass around it...never touched the oak leaf, but now it looks dead, dead, dead! I may have done completely what the deer started!

Enjoyed seeing all your blooms this week! Thanks for hosting.

Pretty blooms. I like the yellow foxglove and especially because it is shorter. You have such a cute shed and I love the things you have added to the lattice.
