Bloomin' Tuesday...

Jean over at http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com has started the Bloomin' Tuesday meme again. Drop by and see what's beginning to bloom this season.

The Hummers are back!
Purchased Foxglove.....the ones started from seed last year 'might' bloom this year.

Dianthus 'First Love' has blooms from white to pink.

Nemesia
The Ranunculus close up at night.
This is yet another color Ranunculus. The center is not open so this one does look more rose like.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I am Thankful for 'New Beginnings'...

Your flowers are getting me excited. I just told Mom and my sis Mel from UpNorthWithMel, that I'm anxious for my first greenhouse tour and the bareroot sales.
I have a dianthus the color of your foxglove only burgundy tinged in white. It's gorgeous and I pray it survived our indifferent winter.
Have a wonderful week

Amy said...

I love to watch those little hummers. Your garden is definitely awake and looking pretty. I like your rock garden! I like rocks and flowers together, too.

Susie said...

You already have hummers?!?! Wow! I wonder if I need to get my feeder out yet?!

Becca's Dirt said...

Beautiful Darla. Lovin those ranuculas.

Becca's Dirt said...

Darla were you lucky enough to find all of your rocks or did you have to purchase them?

Darla said...

Susie, yes it's time to put up Hummer feeders, usually done in March.

Becca, left over rocks from around the yard..also...neighbbor's took up their old driveway and I had the workers dump the concrete in my yard...win win...I get free stuff for the garden and they didn't have to pay to dump it.

The Dianthus is beautiful. The columbines are coming up here, which means it'll only be a short time before the hummingbirds make an appearance here as well.

It will be a while before we see hummers. When we open our picnic pavilion this year, I'm thinking of putting up at least one feeder. Our neighbors get hummers. We see them flitting back and forth between a bush near our pavilion to their back porch. Perhaps the hummers will stay a bit if we provide food too. Nice pictures of your flowers!

Lois said...

I saw a hummer at my feeder last Friday and so did everyone who was here visiting for the wedding! They got so excited. I'm trying to decompress and get back to my normal routine, but it's not easy.

Dorothy said...

Thanks for reminding me to feed the hummers. Your flowers are getting an early start and looking good. I like those foxgloves.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hey Girlie, Your blooms are SO pretty... Our Crocuses are still blooming --even after the cold and snowy day yesterday. They close up at nights also.

I can't wait 'til we have more color up here...

Have a great Tuesday..
Hugs,
Betsy

Roses and Lilacs said...

I love foxgloves but here, they are a high maintenance plant. Bought a couple last fall that should bloom this year (I hope).

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I haven't seen a hummer at the feeder for awhile, I think the Anna's must move on and now we wait for the Rufous.
Your flowers all look very pretty. I really like the Dianthus.

Elena said...

Your flowers are so pretty. My Dianthus are just starting to show some green. They will probably will be blooming in 5 or 6 weeks!

Carla said...

Does your Ranunculus come back? Your season is right ahead of us, and I'm curious. I'm looking forward to some hummer action too:)

tina said...

Yeah for the hummers and foxgloves. Now hopefully you'll get baby foxgloves and baby hummers:)

imac said...

Nice one Darla, you ought to have an open garden day.

George said...

Darla, you have the most beautiful garden. Thanks for sharing it with us. It's nice to see that your hummingbirds are back.

Deb said...

All your flowers are just lovely!

Jean said...

Hummers already?!!! That's sure a sign of spring. I bought some ranunculus bulbs today I liked yours so much. Jean

Connie said...

The hummingbird is beautiful. How did you catch him in such a pretty pic?

Your flowers are gorgeous, and I'm getting excited about ours coming up - seeing yours.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Grace Peterson said...

Hi Darla~~ Nice blooms! Love the Ranunculus. Love them all actually. Email forthcoming.

bennie and patsy said...

It is just wonderful to see your garden.
Patsy

Laurie and Chris said...

Everything looks so nice Darla!

Cathy said...

Thanks so much for your sweet visit this morning! I am so glad to be back and catching up with everyone!

Love the humming birds...one of my favs!

Enjoy!
XOXO
Cathy

Barbara said...

How beautiful and I have never seen a Hummer bird before.

Bill S. said...

I am jealous - I want hummers too. A month or two they will come.

Leedra said...

Your Foxglove are backwards in color from mine. I also am hoping the seeds I planted last year will actually bloom this year.

Glad to see the hummers are back.

Msrobin said...

Your spring is certainly more advanced than ours, but we're catching up now! I love those ranunculus, but are you sure they aren't poppies? They look so much alike!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Hi Darla,
I read this post yesterday, but couldn't remember if I'd left a comment. I see I didn't here, but now, I'm wondering if I left one on another post and included this post in it. I do that sometimes.

Well, your blooms are looking good. Dianthus is one that grows well here.

That hummer is pretty, too.

Gail said...

I've been mulling over purchasing a few foxgloves! it might be the only way I can have it in my garden! I need to clean my hummer feeders...thanks for the reminder....gail

~~Rhonda said...

Hummingbirds, yes! Can't wait to see our garden visitors soon. I have never had any luck with foxglove. Yours is beautiful! ~~Rhonda

Sit A Spell said...

Saw you at Dorothys blog and had to stop by and say HI. What a beautiful blog you have. Are you in Florida...with all those plants? I just moved here and am having to learn a whole new way of gardening!

marmee said...
