Gotta show off what's blooming in my gardens! Spring was slow to arrive here in my area but now that June is here, my gardens are slowly coming to life. Between the rains and the high winds, I tried taking pictures of the blooming plants.
I have 3 bushes of these peonies in front; this is the first year they have really bloomed well. They must finally like their garden spots, and here I was... getting ready to transplant them somewhere else!
My purple alliums are truly awesome this year.
They almost dwarf my 55" Japanese pagoda close by.
This Clematis is putting forth some lovely blooms.
Soon, they will cover everything so profusely, the leaves will disappear under all the blossoms.
I started with just a couple of these Dame Rocket plants.
They are trying to overtake the gardens now. I keep digging them up to share with every visitor that come. So, if you're visiting, be warned .
This Scabiosa, commonly known as pincushion flower just got planted to replace a short perennial plant I lost over winter.
I love the airy and delicate looks of the stunningly colored Blue Centaurea Montana.
This White Phlox is new, too.
My favorite geranium has been repotted and is blooming now.
A volunteer Aquilegia flower.
A new addition... African Daisies, White Serenity variety.
The wind have really battered my May Night sage plants.
My red Dianthus are brilliant and already profuse this year.
So are the reliable daisies.
In my neglected back garden, one can see the determined Chives, blooming away inspite of the weeds.
Brave yellow irises peeking through the weeds
I remember the name Music Master but can not remember the kind of plant that put forth these blue flowers!
Fragrant pink blooms weigh down my peony bushes out back. The white ones are just now budding. In a few days, my white peonies will take over center stage. I love their fragrance the best over all the other peonies.
I bought these unobtrusive petunias just because they were called "Baby Duckling"
These are new to me. RED Delphiniums.
Stella D'Oro Daylily, a very reliable bloomer.
Amazing purple petunia
In another day or two, more of my other plants will be flowering. Mother Nature is always busy!
