What’s Blooming!

Here it is the last Friday of the month! One of my goals this month was to do some other gardening posts and *that* didn’t happen. Where the heck did the month go??

My tippy pot in the front along with some delphiniums that will be blooming soon. Eeeeee!

Firecracker plant.  I really think this plant is so cute!

On a hardscape note, John is redoing some of the sidewalk that he did last year. The first few that he did are not faring well. So, he took those up and is getting ready to pour new ones.

These pink flowers are blooming everywhere.  I let these go to seed and they just come up all over the place. For the life of me I cannot recall the name and I am too lazy to go back through my blog and look it up.

My other astilbes are now blooming. I still have the white ones:

This is the Bressingham beauty:

And Flame:

These 2 are still pretty small as they are immature plants. It should be a great show next year for whomever owns this house.

My butterfly bush survived, but is pretty small. This normally will be 5 feet tall during the season, but I just don’t know if it will make it that high.

And one single daylily bloomed yesterday:

I am going to have quite the show of them this week!  Have a super weekend!

    YOur garden is looking spectacular Lori!! You have me in love with Astible…..must find some! 🙂 I decided to join you on posting a garden post this Friday. I hope you’ll pop over and take a look! Tell John we paid a ‘professional’ to pour our walkway and HE has to come back and fix it! So i think John did a great job! Hugs! deb

      Astilbes are really great plants. They do best in partly sunny conditions. Mine get morning sun and late evening sun and seem to love it.

      The plants would depend on the amount of sunlight this area gets. I can give you some suggestions for that if you like.

    What a nice variety of blooms you have in your garden. I like your unidentified pink flower.TOTAL Astilbe envy here.I didn’t even know they came in red! And daylilies–I want to get some of those.I think they do well out here.there is a daylily farm fairly close by.

      I don’t want to tell you, but astilbes come in many, many colors like pink, peach, rust, lavender, etc. 😀 In our new house, I am going to have a ton of astilbe!

    I love the variety in your flower garden! I actually have quite a few things in bloom right now and it’s so much fun to out each day and see what’s bloomed.

    You and John have amazing handy man skills! Pouring your own concrete – I don’t know anyone who does that!
