What’s blooming today!

Another Friday rolling around!  It’s been a hectic week, but a nice cool front has just rolled in with rain and it is going to be a glorious weekend!  Yay!

On to the blooms!  These are some of the snapdragons I posted yesterday.

Love these!  I found some other ones with a brighter color distinction, but it started raining before I was able to get out there with the camera.

Now my clematis is really growing.  Took long enough.

This is the heliopsis with the yellow blooms.  I have had some blooms, but not a lot this year.  It really likes this spot, but it needs more support and I am thinking of moving it.  We don’t necessarily like it climbing up the porch like this.

The teddy bear sunflowers popped out more blooms this week.  I do like these.

I might just try direct sowing the seeds next year instead of growing them inside.

Allysum blooms that are close to the ground.

I have 3 hanging baskets.  There is flowering tobacco and purple allysum in them.

I have a love/hate relationship with the baskets.  They look good, but they are a pain to water – and they have to be watered every day.  I don’t know if I will put them up next year or not.

Last week I had said the purple lirope hadn’t bloomed even though the white ones did.  Now the purple is just coming in.

They look kind of like rock candy.

The sedum is getting darker and darker.

I still have some plants that haven’t bloomed yet.  I have some marigolds that are just showing buds now.  Nothing like a late bloomer, right?

Maybe before fall?? LOL!

There also is a stray black-eyed susan by my butterfly bush.


Those are persistent buggers, I have to say.  They keep popping up all over.

Nice long rides this weekend and I won’t be sweating buckets!  Just normal amounts 😀

    I read somewhere that sunflowers don’t like to be disturbed…moved so plant them where you want them so maybe direct sowing would be best………maybe if you used a regular pot(plastic) rather than the moss pots you may not have to water every day but clay pots and the moss lined baskets dry out quick! Your garden looks beautiful this year Lori you make me ache for my own….hugs! deb
