Dad had the Melanoma tumor removed yesterday, he now has about 30 sutures, he did really good. I have had a sick child home for two days.....and working on something very exciting! I'll post about it soon. My visiting and emails are hit and miss right now. Prayerfully things will smooth out soon.

Today I am Thankful that the Lord does not put more on me/you than we can handle...

All the flowers are great. I really like how some have woven themselves into other plants, but your dahlias are the best!

Racquel said...

Wow your garden is a mass of blooms right now. I only have one Dahlia in my garden and it is not even close to blooming yet. All my best to your Dad in his recovery. :)

Amy said...

Your garden is really taking off and looking beautiful! I like the color of the blooms on the milkweed.
I need to check into the hollyhocks. They are very pretty. Looking forward to seeing what you are working on.

NanaK said...

All your blooms are gorgeous. I'm nursing some little hollyhock seedlings I'm hoping will grow up to be like yours.

I'm glad to hear your father is healing.

Susie said...

Glad to know he had the tumor removed Darla. Hope all is well. Beautiful blooms!

sweet bay said...

Good to hear that your dad's surgery went well!

Beautiful flowers -- my favorites are your double pink Hollyhock, gold milkweed, and the lavender dahlia. I wish they were in my garden too!

Paula said...

Love your blowers - my holly hocks are about 5 inches tall! Your's make me anxious for them to get bigger! Glad to hear your dad has that procedure over! Take care of yourself. When my parents were sick I totally wore myself out. Be careful it takes a while to get better if you don't take care of you! Paula from Idaho

Nice blooms! Gail's PPPP seems to bloom forever. That's great news on your dad, I'm glad things are looking better!

Dar said...

So happy to hear that your Daddy is doing good. I'm so glad for him. But, sorry your child isn't feeling well. Hate when they get sick. Hold and hug, Dear.
Your flowers are delicious looking and so healthy.
Have a great day

RainGardener said...

Fantastic that your Dad finally decided to have that taken care of. Glad he's doing good.
You're sure bloomin' around your place!

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Oh, Darla girl I love that double Hollyhock. If I beg real hard would you save me some seeds from it? LOL! Shameless aren't I.

Your dahilas are blooming already. So pretty! The Milkweed is going to be a hit with your butterflies.

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

Hi Darla. What gorgeous blooms. Your gardens are stunning. I love your hollyhock. I planted some seeds last year. Only one survived, and I'm crossing my fingers that it bloom this year. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous garden. Praying all in your family a healthy recovery.

Lois said...

Glad your Dad has the surgery behind him and he did well! The flowers are gorgeous as always Darla.

Becca's Dirt said...

Glad to hear the good news about your dad. Love the gerbera. Dahlia is beautiful. I like the softness of the colors. Oooohhh and the hollyhock is beautiful. I sure hope I have a bloom or two. Hope my purple balloon flowers bloom.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I'm trying Dianthus for the first time this year. I love their scent. So many of your blooms won't be blooming here until later this summer. I have some poppies getting close to blooming, but I don't think they got as tall as yours did. I think you must have some magic soil :)
So glad your Dad had his surgery so that can be behind him and now he can heal.
Hope your kids are better. We've had something going through our house too.

Bonnie said...

Everything looks great, and your photos are amazing!

bennie and patsy said...

Real happy about your dad and hope the kid gets better so.Your plants are great to look at.

Ami said...

Wow, your May garden is so beautiful and colorful1 I especially love the hollyhocks and the dhalias! Pretty!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Hi Darla, the hollyhock is just beautiful For me they are the ultimate cottage garden flower. I remember an English painting with a girl and boy and a garden gate surrounded by blooming hollyhocks.

Floridagirl said...

So many pretty flowers! Love the bright and sunny Susans! And what a beautiful color for a Gerbera daisy. My Gerberas have leafed out nicely but have not produced any flowers yet this year. That petunia/loropetalum combination is quite striking! And lovely dahlias. Hope your dad has a quick recovery.

Valerie said...

Oh I was just wondering about your dad. I am glad he is doing good. I love your pictures. Bloomin Tues huh? Wonder if I need to join that too. I have always wanted to do some of this but never took the time.

George said...

I'm glad to hear that your Dad is doing well and we hope and pray that he has a speedy recovering.
I really like your beautiful hollyhock.

Window On The Prairie said...

Your zinnias look spectacular. We've had a lot of wind here so my garden is not looking so hot right now.

Dani said...

Lookin' great Darla!

Grace Peterson said...

Darla, I'm so glad your dad opted to have the surgery, bless his heart.

I hope you're able to take a few moments and enjoy these delightful blooms.

Email forthcoming!

Marilyn Jones said...

Beautiful Dahlias and hollyhocks!
Glad your Dad's surgery took place and he did well.

Jean said...

The hollyhock is amazing! There is certainly always something bloomin' in your garden. I hope your Dad is okay. I know all about Melanoma scares. Jean

imac said...

Beautiful post and flowers Darla, its so hard to say which I like best.

Leedra said...

Like the Susan with Larkspur color combination. They look like they belong together. I also like Susan's with my dark daylilies.

Glad to hear your Daddy did have the surgery. Will continue to pray.

Shelley said...

Hope your father heals nicely and that your sick child feels better soon. As I look thru your flower photos I'll say to myself - oooh I want that one, and then I see the next photo and want that one too. Okay, I want all your flowers! :-)

Lola said...

So glad your Dad is doing ok. Will continue to pray for all.
Your flowers look lovely.

Tracy said...

Darla, glad your Dad came through ok.
Hope kiddo is feeling better.
Hang in there.
Your plants are gorgeous girl!!! I planted Hollyhocks this year from seed and I think I have one seedling that made it (so far) not looking too promising.
Tracy

Suzanne said...

All of those photos are gorgeous, but that Hollyhock took my breath away!
