Bloomin' Tuesday and Stuff

it's bloomin' tuesday over at http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com

crinum lily
trimmed the crape mrytle tree as soon as they showed signs of fading blooms, just barely cutting the blooms off. we did this about 10 days ago. now look! we are going to have a second flush of color.
the new growth is buds. blurry i know, one handed photography and check out the one handed typing, lol.
random garden shot. just felt good to finally be outside this morning, dang it's been 6 days!
the creeping jenny with the ruby mountain grass is turning out beautifully. the container is sitting on a metal crate. reminds me of the bottom of a soft floating dress.
randomness again

drumroll please...

Ouch on the arm, hope it heals fast. :) Your blooms today are gorgeous, especially liked that Crinum Lily.

Suzanne said...

First of all I hope you heal quickly. Not fun at all!

Your blossoms don't seem to be affected by your hurt arm, however! They are just as gorgeous as ever!

Take care.

Becca's Dirt said...

Glad to hear it all went well. Hopefully you'll be back in business soon. Beautiful blooms Darla. I always love to see your random shots of the gardens. Your garden art is always interesting.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Glad to hear from you, Darla, and glad the surgery went well. Hope it continues to improve quickly. Hope you don't have all of the stomach problems I did --with the pain meds.

Interesting bug to say the least... WOW!!!! AND --your flowers as usual are looking great. I'm sure you have had alot of help in the garden while you have been out.


Roses and Lilacs said...

Hi Darla. I so happy the surgery was successful. This gives you a valid excuse to sit out in your garden and do absolutely nothing but enjoy the flowers and the birds.

BTW, love that chair you have the pot sitting in.

Ewa in the Garden said...

Dear Darla, I hope your surgery is Ok and you will recover fast - send you my positive energy to heal faster :)
wow! what a picture of a spider you placed in the header! amazing!

Dorothy said...

Darla, I'm glad that surgery is behind you, now just try to take it easy and let it heal! Yes, Prayer DOES make a difference! Your flowers are very pretty!

Twisted Fencepost said...

You're doing great! I hope you heal quickly so you can get back to the things you love. Like us! tee hee just kidding. I mean your garden.

George said...

I'm glad to hear that your surgery went well. I hope you soon are able to do all the things you love to do. Your garden is beautiful.

Danielles Garden said...

the creeping jenny is beautiful!

Jean said...

Darla, I knew you couldn't miss Bloomin' Tuesday! Your gardens still look great even without your help this week! The tag for Mulleins says zone 4 to 9. Likes dry soil but must water when blooming. Jean

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

You are doing very well for a one handed photographer.:) My prayers are with you daily.I pray that healing will happen quickly.

bettyl said...

What a great tour of your garden! Hope your arm gets better soon.

Lynn said...

Sure hope you are feeling better soon. Not a great time of the year to have surgery on your arm. I guess someone else will have to do the weeding for you!!!

Leedra said...

Lovely crinum lily color. Have never seen such a dark crinum lily.

Was it one arm, or two? Hope you are doing good.

Susie said...

I sent you a card earlier Darla. I hope you have received it.

Hope you are mending well. I think you are doing tremenduous to be able to be out photographing plants.

Take care of yourself!

Hi Darla, Well, I must say that arm of yours looks pretty well protected--and limited.

Love your "random" blossoms! The grass with the cascading Jenny is outstanding. I might have to be a copycat. Your crape myrtle looks like the same color as one of mine, which is, by the way far away from blooming. Thanks for the sneak peak.

bakingbarb said...

Your flowers are BEAUTIFUL!
Amazing photo in the header btw.
Hope you heal quickly.

Tootsie said...

how ya feeling honey??? I am thinking of you. My arm is very sore..and with each twinge I think of you and how bad your arms were hurting you.
Hope you are feeling better than yesterday and that every day heals a lot more...and fast!

Amy said...

Very pretty post! I hope your arm doesn't hurt and that it heals very quickly...I'm sure you do, too. Take care, Amy

Kimberly said...

Hey Darla! I love your crinum and container garden! Beautiful! I hope your arm heals quickly. Hugs!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I've been thinking about you and wondering how you surgery went. Glad it is past and you can get on with healing.
Your gardens are looking great! I love the Crape Myrtle, I remember seeing those when we were in Florida.

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I'm glad your surgery is over, and you can start healing. I just said a prayer for you.

Your place is looking great! I love all the blooms. The brugnmansia is one of my favorites.

Mark said...

Started my day out with a smile enjoying your beautiful garden! Very happy to hear you are on the mend! Take care - we are praying for you!

Jake said...

I have been away for a while but I am back. I am glad to see that your gardens are still doing well and are blooming like crazy. You also reminded me that there is a Crinium Lily or two that will grow here in Lexington I think or at least I will experiment with.
