I have so been enjoying the beautiful blooms that are surrounding my home. Pretty much every corner of the perimeter of my home, is surrounded by flowering plants. A few of them were here before we moved into the house, but most of them have been planted by me. They are mostly perrenials, so I can just enjoy them coming back year, after year. I love my rose bushes... I have six different rose bushes along one side of the house, and they are just producing beautifully this season. I noticed that some of the leaves are being eaten by critters, so I will have to dust the roses to prevent further damage to them.
Lovely white roses with a pale pink outline...
Lovely red rose variety with beautiful blooms that last for a week or longer in fresh water...
I also have lot's of flowers that I planted specifically for cutting, so I can enjoy fresh cut flowers in my home all season long. My zinnias are doing nicely, and putting out new stems and blossoms- I can't wait until they are ready for cutting, as they will look lovely in a bouquet! My coneflower is coming up, the lantana is starting to leaf out, my salvia is looking lovely, and my daisy varieties are about to bloom, as well!
Another garden favorite that puts out firey blooms... Avens- Mrs. Bradshaw Variety, Coreopsis
My husband keeps asking me where on earth I'll put new flowers if we take yet another trip to my favorite garden center... I just smile and say, 'Don't worry- I'll always be able to find a place.'
How does your garden grow? Have a beautiful Wednesday!
