Bloomin' Tuesday...

it's time to join http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/ for bloomin' tuesday.

COMMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN SHOWING UP. I HAVE LEFT COMMENTS SEVERAL TIMES ON BLOGS THIS MORNING.....

i hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. we did with family, great food and fireworks.
i am still typing, taking photos and trying to do a little gardening with one hand, sigh. braces and bandages are suppose to come off tomorrow then i will find out exactly what they found and did to my elbow during surgery....
this weeks offerings are marigold



cosmos above and zinnia below
wagon
ornamental okra and purple coneflowers
althea--rose of sharon
hibiscus purchased for 4 dollars w/o a name. looks like painted lady thay did not return this year.
my husband surprised me with several new plants this weekend (will post them later this week) one is a jane cowell hibiscus which i love. i had one return for 2 years, this past winter was just too cold for her so he bought me another one.


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

today i am thankful that after the first 4 days of surgery i have not taken any pain meds. other than my arm being annoying everything seems pretty good!

Looks so pretty and lush out there , be careful with your arm and elbow. Very sweet your husband thought to surprise you with flowers for your garden, take care, Gina

Susie said...

Pretty blooms Darla! That was sweet of hubbie to get new plants for you.

Glad to hear you are mending well.

Kimberly said...

Hi, Darla! It sounds like your surgery was a success and you're progressing nicely already! No need for pain meds is a great thing! I wish you a speedy recovery!
Your Tuesday blooms are beautiful, especially with the butterflies and bee. That's when you know your garden is truly a garden, in my opinion! Your hibiscus are beautiful! I'm always getting the names mixed up...and it seems impossible to research on my own as I always label any given bloom with the wrong name. Oh well!
Happy Tuesday!!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Good morning, Darla. Good to hear the arm is getting better.

Love your butterfly photos! I really enjoy seeing the different kinds you have in your area.

Julie said...

Well, my goodness, Darla...I never would have guessed that you had already had your surgery the way you have taken pics and kept up your blogging! You are amazing!
Sure hope all of your troubles with your elbows are gonna be GONE!!! Sending loads of loving wishes you way!
Julie

I love the peach hibiscus!

Dave@TheHomeGarden said...

I planted more marigolds than I have growing but the lack of rain won't let them germinate. I just haven't had the time to water like I should. Yours sure look like they are doing their job of attracting pollinators!

Tracy said...

Good luck at the doctor tomorrow - hope it's all good news. Spectacular pictures of your beautiful flowers with the butterflies. We have the yellow swallowtails here in New England but I've never seen the other two.

Lois said...

Beautiful pics Darla! I was out of town last week, but I'm glad to hear your surgery went OK. I'm having trouble with comments too!

perennialgardener said...

Gorgeous blooms this week Darla, and I love the butterflies you captured in these shots as well. That Ornamental Okra is quite eye catching with its' red center. Hope everything goes well tomorrow with your elbow. :)

Becca's Dirt said...

Beautiful hibuscus. Your rose looks kinda orangey/red. It is beautiful. Lovely marigolds. I am a wimp sometime - I probably would have had a pain pill or two. Everything is beautiful Darla.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Hi Darla. Hope the arm is not paining you too much and is improving.

What a beautiful hibiscus and a sweet gift from hubby.
Your wagon looks so pretty!

~Gardener on Sherlock Street said...

Great photos with the butterflies!
Glad to hear you're healing well.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That's amazing Darla not to have to take any pain meds. Wish I didn't have to... Maybe my stomach wouldn't have gotten so upset. Oh Well!!!! Glad you are doing so well... Keep it up!!!!

Love your flowers especially the Hibiscus... That was nice of your hubby to buy you a new one --plus more. Cant wait to hear what all he got...

I did not get a comment from you today... Don't know if you left one or not this morning...

Hugs,
Betsy

tina said...

The zebra swallowtail is so pretty. You are very lucky to have them visit so much. Glad you are doing well with no pain meds.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Praise God that you do not need all that pain medication.God hears and answers our prayers.The flowers areas lovely as ever,just don't overdo it with that one arm. :)
Blessings,Ruth

Becca's Dirt said...

Maybe this time it'll post. Love the hibuscus.

I'm a wimp - I'd have had to have a pain pill. Glad you are getting feeling better.

Zoey said...

What lovely butterflies and flowers.I don't think we get that black/white striped butterfly in Michigan.

imac said...

Nice showing Darla, yup - blogger has been playing up, all emails wouldnt post, thank goodness all working well again.

Dorothy said...

Your flowers are gorgeous! I love that coral Hibiscus! Looks like you are coming along nicely. I think everyone was had trouble with blogger today.

Jean said...

Your camera hand is certainly working! The butterfly pictures are beautiful. I'm glad to hear you are not in pain. Jean

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Hi Darla,
I'm glad you aren't needing extra pain medication. Your husband is a sweetheart, knowing the names of plants you like and the ones you have lost.

I enjoyed seeing the lovely blooms and garden art you showed today. Oh, and the flying flowers are just as fun to see as the blooms.

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I forgot to say how weird it is that at the end of your post, it said you have 5 comments. It still said it after I left my comment.

Now that I think of it, my number of comments wasn't changing on my latest post after I was refreshing the page this morning. I haven't been online much, though. I'm working on the room I'm determined to declutter. Please say a prayer for me when you read this, because it is very overwhelming and emotional. I am making progress, but am a lot slower than someone more organized would be. Of course, they wouldn't have the mess to begin with. I'm not the only one who has thrown stuff in there, though.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

It doesn't seem like surgery has slowed you down much. I hope you aren't overdoing it :)
I love the Hibiscus. I started some from seed this year but they haven't done much. We are finally getting some hot weather here and I'm hoping that jump starts some of these slow seedlings.

Gail said...

Hi Darla! Thank you for your wonderful comment this morning it took hours to show up, but I so appreciated the visit! xxgail

Linda (PA_shutterbug) said...

Love the pictures of your flowers AND butterflies.

Twisted Fencepost said...

Beautiful! As usual.
And I am thankful that you haven't needed to take pain meds!
