Loving and Learning About Flowers in My Zone 8-8b Gardens. (with a family photo from time to time) LIFE BEGAN IN A GARDEN...
Today I am Thankful for the beauty that surrounds me.
You are very lucky with all your self seeded bloomers Darla. I've had some success with some things but because I mulch heavily it limits the amount of self sowing. I love that Calibrachoa, wish they were perennials. Last summer I had the Proven Winners variety 'Saffron' and it was superb! :)
Your calibrachoa is beautiful. I like the mix of colors.
Oh my gosh, I love all of your blooms. Can't believe how many self-seed.Enjoy all that loveliness that surrounds you.FlowerLady
Darla, Good morning! it's good to be home and visiting...Your garden is so alive with pretty blooms. I wish that hollyhocks liked c&l! They were my mom's favorite plant and I do try to establish them every year. gail
It looks superb. You have a lot of self seeding going on. That's great. Wish mine would.
That rust just seems to follow hollyhock no matter where it goes!
Your self seeders are annuals up north. And your dahlias, we have to wait for fall for them before they flower because we have to dig the bulbs up each fall. I can't wait to see your Dinnerplate Dahlia in full bloom...they are so gorgeous. I do get Forget-Me-Nots to rebloom but I do not see them this year...arghHave a lovely gardening day
Everything looks lovely. And thanks for jogging my memory about what that plant was in my garden - a Hollyhock!!
Everything is incredible, Darla!
What great beauty envelops you, Darla! I love the Tiger Lily! He's handsome and so is the elegant dinnerplate Dahlia!
My oh my. I have a love/hate relationship with your Bloomin' Tuesday posts. I absolutely love seeing all the varieties of blossoms in your garden every week AND after looking at all those beauties I'm jealous! Such beauty! Thanks for sharing!(Just so you know, the "love" always wins out!)
Darla, you have a lot of beauty around you to enjoy! Your veggies look wonderful!
Love hollyhock but it is one of those plants that attracts disease and insect pests like a magnet. Your Calibrachoa looks great.Marnie
Wow you had so many self seed. I love it. Hope mine do. I've never seen Calibrachoa but it is gorgeous. The verbena look like mine. The dahlias are looking good. Have a great Darla.
You are so talented girl. I love looking at each thing that you share! Your gardens are so enchanting!!! show me your BBQ...I want to see...I planted mine last weekend...and every time I look at it...I think of you!I think of April when I look at my crowns...there's little hints of my friends all over my gardens
Wow, dahlias already, they look great. I love your self-seeded forget-me-nots too, such a wonderful shade of blue.
Love the Hollyhocks... I grew these many years ago... I have some posted some Bluebells you might like to see.. but only if you have the time Darla.
I'm very impressed with all of your blossoms, especially the self-seeding flowers you have.
Blooming good Tuesday - by the looks of your super flowers Darla.
Oh my they are all so wonderful! I love the Hollyhock and Dahlia the most I think!
The color of your hollyhock is amazing. You have such good luck with seeds. Lovin' all the colors1 Jean
Okay Darla, I see the rust. But only after you pointed it out. I've got to get out and care for mine before they're dead. Not only is rust an issue but the hollyhock weevil is also vying for the leaves and foliage.
Hi, Darla! I really love the self seeded moss rose. They perform like champs for me. All of your blooms are fantastic!
Wow! Love your tiger lily - it is amazing! Paula
Well you definitely have a green thumb. I planted hollyhocks from seed last year, and only one survived. And I still have no blooms on it. I can't get forget-me-nots to grow, either. My tiger lilies will bloom maybe in a week or so. Your gardening is superb!!
Hi Darla, Love your flowers... Your Verbena is pretty. I am loving mine --along with the Fuchsia. How's your Daddy????Hugs,Betsy
I'm gonna try and find some seeds for that calibrachoa. It's so pretty!
Wow, that hollyhock is a beauty! I gotta get me some of those seeds.I have moss rose that reseeds in a flower pot every year. It hasn't started blooming yet. I saved some of the seeds last year so I could re-do the pot this year. And you know I'll be posting pics when the blooms appear.
Wow, Darla, I've gotten behind! I'm glad I made it to this post. I just love all the kinds of flowers you grow. I used up the space where I had been growing large dahlias, so was thinking I wasn't going to grow any this year. Also, I'm mad at myself for not getting the bulbs brought inside for the winter. Still, I may see if I can find a spot. I have forget me nots blooming. That's weird, since my cleomes and 4 O' Clocks are little seedlings, and yours are blooming. Oh, maybe the difference is annuals vs. perennials. I'll have to pay more attention. My foxgloves look like they'll be blooming in a couple weeks or so. Now that I think about it, there are differences in bloom times, even in my own city. There's a yard that faces south on a busy street where the bachelor buttons are in full bloom, while mine are only about half grown.Well, I hope things are going well with you and your family. Hey, we're supposed to get into the 90s this weekend! Maybe plants will grow really fast and catch up with some of yours. LOL
