Today's pictures are of many different plants. The first group of pictures are perennial Geraniums. I have many different colors and varieties of this treasured little plant. I love this plant because its so hardy, and even reseeds itself without being invasive. It will also bloom a second time in the season if you cut it back after blooming. The first picture is a close-up of a purple geranium.
The second picture is a close-up of a pink Geranium and the third picture is a far away shot of my septic mound where most of my Geranium's are planted. They seem to enjoy growing on a sunny hillside. I also have white and blue geraniums. You can barely see the white ones in the picture below.
Here is a picture of my Goatsbeard. Its the white plume plant behind the Siberian Iris. It is absolutely gorgeous this year.
Below is a close up of some purple sage with yellow yarrow behind it.
This pretty flower is an English Daisy. Don't you just love the color?
Here is another close-up of my Goatsbeard.
One of my favorite flowers is Lupine, but it is very difficult to grow in my area, so I'm always happy when I see a few blooms in the spring. I hear it grows 'wild' in some states...I wish that were the case here in Wisconsin. Behind the Lupine you can see the Red Peonies I featured in yesterday's post.
And finally here is a close-up of my Globe Alliums. Each globe is about the size of a small cantaloupe. It attracts bees and butterflies like you wouldn't believe, but they all flew away when I showed up to take the picture.
I wish each and every one of you could see my garden in person just so you could smell it. The scent of the garden this year is unbelievable! The second you step out of my house or out of the car, you can smell the beautiful flowers. Its almost overwhelming. It smells like your inside a perfume company!
Well that's all for today. Pray I get more hours at work. I need them! Its so funny, if I work too much I complain, but if I don't work enough I complain. It's a double edged sword. If I work I don't have time for my crafts and garden, but if I don't work, I have no money. I wish I could have both, but I guess its impossible. Have a great day! Amy
