Welcome to Friday and What’s Blooming! There was the tulip phase and now it’s the rose phase!
“Es ist ein Ros entsprungen”
My Sunsprite, aka 100-pound rose bush, has at least a couple dozen buds on it.
Next week will be the big bloom week for it. Look at all those buds!
Neon pink Knockout rose:
And my other uber favorite rose – the Scentimental.
This one also has probably 40 buds on it.
The smell so dreamy, too.
The alliums are still going strong. This is a very cool flower.
These are some annuals called Wishbone flowers. Not sure why, but they are cute and so I got some for one of my planters.
I also have a surprise bloom on some new flowers I have in the garden. I got 2 kinds of centaura (aka perennial bachelor buttons) that I planted as young plants, so I wasn’t expecting any blooms this year. Then I see this!
This one is called Amethyst in Snow and I love it! They are short plants and are at the front of my bed. I don’t know if the other one will bloom or not.
Still have more of the irises blooming.
This weekend will be some shopping for a couple stepping stones and then either a birdbath or obelisk or gazing ball thing for the middle of the garden.
Now that I expanded the bed, it needs something in the middle.
Here is my shade garden.
I have new astilbes planted underneath the window and they need a season or 2 to get to full size.
