Cottage Flora Thursday and FF

Trumpet Lily buds with Turk's Cap Trumpet Lilies in another area Datura in the middle. Fix the date on your camera Darla!


Random Zinnias dropped off on my porch by an unkown neighbor, hadn't a clue of their colors. Butterfly Ginger buds

The Sedum boots are thriving on neglect, love that!

This Clematis Vine that was completely covered in blooms during the Spring, continues to push out a bloom or two in the summer heat. With each new bloom the colors are darker?? Loving this too!

Every now and then when I purchase a mixed packet of seeds, like the Cosmos, I am surprised with a beauty..

I would love to have a field of these colors....

Linking up over at http://fishtailcottage.blogspot.com/ for today and http://tootsietime.blogspot.com/ for tomorrow.

**If any of you are receiving strange emails from me, I did not send them and hopefully I have corrected the problem**


Today I am Thankful that my gardens are continuing to give me blooms ..


Jill said...

Everything is looking beautiful!

Antique ART Garden said...

Beautiful photos and no emails from you , strange or otherwise. Take care, Gina

Karen said...

Love the flowers you're sharing today. The cosmos is really beautiful, love those colors. I wonder if any seed company sells that color separately? The trumpet lilies are really trumpet-shaped, very cool.

We're having a wet day here, not really rainy, just drizzle and it's not much fun being out there with the skeeters, but I hate to waste any day inside when all too soon it will be wall to wall snow.

Skeeter said...

Your Sedum looks so happy. I have a sedum I planted in the wrong spot. It is trying to croak from over watering. I must get it moved before she completely rots on me.... Yikes...

cherry said...

Darla, I agree with you a field or even a few of that yummy cosmo would be awesome.. You still have a lot of pretties..Oh and unless I lose my mind or 50 pounds you will never see me floating around in the pool..lol
and chances are I will lose the mind first..lol

hugs from Savannah, Cherry

Lola said...

Thanks, now I know exactly what the name on my lilies are. I have the same kind.
No mail here.

Twisted Fencepost said...

I would love to see a field of those flowers, too. Beautiful!
Got another one of those emails yesterday. Determined little people aren't they? LOL

Egretta Wells blog said...

All your flowers are so beautiful and "cottageie" (is that a word?). You always take such good photos, too. Thanks for sharing.

Lona said...

I love the pretty Cosmos blooms Darla!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

Lilies are just beginning to open here too, I look forward to them more for their smell than anything. That is a really pretty Cosmos! Mine is sooooo slow this year, they just started sprouting in the last couple of weeks. Zinnias are barely up here too. Wish I had such a generous neighbor as you.

Grace said...

That last Cosmos is way cool. I wonder if you saved its seed if it would come back true next year. Your Trumpet lilies are architectural wonders, much more dainty and refined than the wider lilies. I like them a lot. How nice that your Clemmy keeps putting out flowers. It's a beaut too.

ANNE said...

What a pretty cosmos, never seen the petals edged like that. And I love the simple beauty of the ginger buds.

George said...

I really like the Cosmos blossoms. I'm not sure I've seen this coloration before. I agree that a field full of them would be a wondrous sight.
I was interested to see that you have trumpet lily buds that haven't opened. I'm afraid our lilies are done for the year.

Marie said...

Hi Darla - your garden is truly a gardener's haven. Love all the blooming flora and their colors. This is what I like about blogging, I get to see things that I normally do not see in my corner of the world.

Happy Thursday!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

That white and pink Cosmos is so pretty.

NanaK said...

The color on that clematis is beautiful. Getting darker in the heat...interesting. I would love to have a field of wildflowers of any color, but that cosmos is a special one.

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Your garden is so pretty. Mine seems to be winding down from the heat wave...just trying to keep everything watered without running up the water bill! an impossibility :/
I love Cosmos! I have had real beauts over the years. I love how you get a "bonus beaut" every so often.
Have a great weekend!

HolleyGarden said...

Can't believe your clematis is still blooming! Very pretty! I'm going to get some Cosmos seeds next year - yours are fabulous!

~Gardener on Sherlock Street said...

You got a great shot of the sedum blooms.
I'm jealous of your clematis. Mine is having a hard time in the heat.

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...

Such a pretty garden! What I make are journals and I have been collecting them for years. I talk about it on my profile in my Etsy shop! Have a great day!


Dorothy said...

Wonderful pictures of your flowers! You must have one of everything!

Janet, The Queen of Seaford said...

The Cosmos and the Zinnias are super performers this time of year. Love that dark edged Cosmos.

Patsy said...

Your flowers still look great ,my little garden is sad looking and it needs God to water it.

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

It's all so pretty!!!!


sweetbay said...

I love your cosmos.

Zoey said...

Hi Darla,
What a great color of Cosmos. Love them!

daisy said...

What an unusual cosmos! Gorgeous!

Dani said...

Those cosmos are so awesome!

Bernie said...

That is such a gorgeous Cosmos! What pretty colours and markings.

Dar said...

Everything is so lush even in your heat of the day. That, my dear, makes you a great gardener. Those Butterfly Ginger buds caught my eye. Love it, don't have it, does it survive zone 3? Also love the sedum boot. WOW, it's doing great!
Have a great weekend.

siteseer said...

Such a beautiful garden you have. The colors of your cosmos are so vibrant. I have flower envy since most of mine are tuckered out for the season.

Val said...

Beautiful. My blooms are just about gone. I had to quit joining in the fun with Tootsie. It is so dry here. We need rain bad. Hope you are doing good.

Hi Darla! Your trumpet lilies are awesome. I received some free cosmos seeds in the mail. They're about to bloom and I can't wait to see them. Stay cool!

property. Some people like to have formal flower gardens, planted for neatness and for color contrast. Others plant flowers in everywhere, even amongst the vegetables. Many flowers such as marigolds will keep away pests from the vegetable patch.

Miele S8 said...

Grow your favourites and arrange them so that each sets off its neighbor: colours in contrast and harmony, rounded flowers set off by spiky ones or annuals mixed with perennials. Likewise, don't forget the texture, colors and shapes of the foliage.
