Almost every Sunday, during the growing season, I love to share "What's Blooming In My Yard"!
This is what has been blooming the past few weeks.
I have been working so hard in the garden that it's been difficult finding the time to photograph it. Thus, this post is a little photo-heavy because I have a lot of catching up to do!
My water feature garden finally filled out and I have a lot in bloom to look at through my kitchen window. Right now the foxgloves, daisies, sedum, perennial geraniums, astilbe, and purple campanula are all blooming in this garden.
Purple and white foxglove grow tall and beautiful in this garden with a hedge of white perennial geraniums beneath.
Here is a close up of the white geraniums (ant included). I have perennial geraniums in many of my gardens. This is the white variety, but I also have pink and blue.
My astilbe has not been doing well the past few years because it's getting choked out by lamium. I need to re-do this garden next year, or this fall if time permits.
The spirea bushes have just started to bloom. I have several different varieties. This one is called "Little Princess".
In my last garden post I showed all my early blooming peonies, which are mostly large, singular blooms. The double peonies, like the ones below, bloom later. I have many of these bushes scattered throughout my garden.
This is a gorgeous, large clematis that I have growing up a porch post.
Now I normally do a lot of close ups of my garden flowers, but I wanted to show what I have been working on the past few months. Many of my regular readers know I use to have a very nice garden, but after a back injury and years of full time work my garden went to weed. I've been trying to restore it the past two years, but it will probably take another few years before I'm done. Last year I renovated the southern retaining wall garden (shown above) and this year I just finished re-doing my south east garden. This is a large garden that used to be a sun garden, but now that the trees have grown and filled out, it's a shade garden. I dug out all the weeds and tall sun perennials and replaced them all with hosta and other shade tolerant plants.
Have a great day! Amy
