Bloomin' Tuesday

Check out my butterfly I was able to capture.


For the life of me I can't get the dang cursor above the first photo. Every single photo is loaded in a different order than I loaded. I hate this new blogger. Let me say that again. I HATE THE NEW BLOGGER. There I don't actually feel any better but I have to go on.

It's time for Bloomin Tuesday over at Jean's. Ya'll head on over and check out the other bloggers who have some blooms to share today. Go to http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/.

Still a going. Some of my bloomers have taken on the slogan - keeps going and going and going just like the energizer bunny.

Cannas may be about to be done.

Jasmine is re-blooming. I still have to get a trellis for the jasmine.

My BFF.

Wild lantana.


Re-blooming Portulaca

Volunteer four o'clocks. I love the color. They have made it home around this tree and I like it.



That's all I have to share today. Hope you all have a great day.

Very nice Becca. I think that lantana is called Miss Huff...it grows wild around here too. How are you doing?

Your blooms are lovely !

Can you switch back to the old Blogger format ? I have done that because I hate the new format, too ! (Although I've never been able to move my cursor above my first loaded photo before, even in the old blogger ?)

A good tip I found when loading multiple photo's ... is to load the last one (the one you want to appear last on your post) first ... sometimes I number my photos (only for my own info, the no's don't appear on my blog) which makes it easier to download them in the correct order. Hope this helps :)

You do have some "enenrgizer bunny" blooms don't you! I never complain about flowers that want to keep going!

Great job capturing the butterfly!

P.S. I write my blogs in Live Writer instead of blogger. It is so much easier to deal with the photos in Live Writer. However, if you edit your post that was written in Live Writer in Blogger, you have to reinsert your carriage returns.

The portulaca and purslane is about all I have blooming anymore. As for the cursor not going above the first photo, don't know if this will help. But I couldn't get it to go above my signature I added in order to post. I switch to html, move the body down with Enter, then switch back to compose and I'm good to go! Let me know if this works for you.

Your garden looks beautiful and that butterfly is stunning. I have down loaded 'google chrome' and it is much easier to do your post in that. It also has a speller!! Dciane

Great pictures Becca. I have trouble inserting my pictures also, some end up posting twice. I haven't found a fix yet.

I agree with Darla, that is definitely 'Miss Huff'. She's a must have in my garden, plus she's hardy here. ;) Pretty blooms, I love that Jasmine.

Jean said...

Becca, I'm glad to see your garden is rebloomin'! I love all the bright color. Good for you for trying to stop smoking again. It's all boils down to attitude, I think. I know you can do it if you made it thru other addictions! Jean

Hello Becca! Love your 4 0'clock. The bright pink flowers are so attractive. The purple jasmine is really cute. Love the deep purple of the flowers. Yes, get a trellis soon yeah...

Daisy said...

I love the butterfly picture, Becca. I always have trouble getting a photo of them because they won't hold still for me. Great picture of Buddy too! Dogs can be such special friends.:D

I second the suggestion for using Windows Live Writer. It seems to me it is so much easier to use than Blogger.

Is 4 O'clocks an annual or perennial?

Bloodhound said...

Hi Becca, Just checked out some of your previous posts and have enjoyed my trip around your garden. Your blooms are excellent. Long may they continue to flower!

You are very lucky to have Lantana that grow wild! Those Four O Clocks are very pretty:)

Becca, I apologize; I thought I had already been following you here; well, I am now! I love the butterfly pic. I took one yesterday afternoon (an odd blue/black one) that's been in my peach tree for 3 days. The tree is a volunteer froma sucker (from an ornamental patio peach that died); the original root stock is a very sweet, white fleshed peach - beautiful! 10' and only 4 years old. This is our first year with little baby peaches! I'll upload the pics tomorrow.

One of those BLT's sounds good right now, but I'm having oral surgery on Tuesday, and can't even chew air! Have a great week! Stacey
