Late to the Party

I must admit that I completely forgot Garden Bloggers Bloom Day this month. In all honesty I had barely paid the garden any mind at all last week. I shudder to think what it will look like if I don't get up from this desk and get to work soon! I have pulled some weeds and removed some old stalks from last year but I have way too much garden for "some" to be enough.

What I have done is collected some images to share of what's blooming now despite my neglect:)

Dianthus 'Firewitch'

Coral honeysuckle

California poppy

An unidentified iris from a great lady

Viburnum bracteatum 'Emerald Luster'

American Fringe tree ~ Chionanthus virginicus

Sweet Betsy ~ Calycanthus floridus

Sweetbay Rugosa rose

Indigofera amblyantha

Salvia 'Maraschino'

Have a great week!


  1. Oh, what pretty blooms. The Firewitch Dianthus is so pretty. I love the shocking pink. The California Poppy is wonderful too.

  2. Lisa,

    Wow some really nice stuff going on there! Wonderful job on the Sweet Besty photo.
    Today I saw a Coral Honeysuckle wall, filled entirely an area 6 ft high by 10 ft long, will have some close ups on my blog.

  3. Wow..such beauties...all wonderfully charming! I love that!!
    Have a happy day!

  4. Is the iris from Nancedar? It looks like one of hers! I got one from her that was cream and another that was peach.

    Beautiful picture of the Indigofera.

  5. Thanks for comments! I like it when everyone has a different favorite:)

    Sweetbay, yes it did come from nancedar along with Pippi and a few others. I think all of my irises are passalongs~ I can't remember ever buying any.
