Bloomin Tuesday

Jean over at http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/2011/04/its-bloomin-tuesday.html made a major announcement yesterday and said that Bloomin Tuesday is back. Yea! Ya'll head on over and check who just might be sharing a bloom today.

I have been anxiously awaiting a bloom on this snapdragon I planted last year from seeds I started. This is the only one that survived after planting the seedlings last year.

Check out the color of it. I think it is mixed up. I see a little yellow, burgundy, purple, white and maybe even more colors. It'll be interesting as it continues to open up. This is Snapdragon Giant Tetra.

 

 This little marigold is blooming it's heart out.

This is a new dianthus for me this year. I'm lovin the white edges here and the pink is actually a little softer than it appears. I think this one is called Pink Picotee.

This is the second bloom on the Full Tide Iris. The bloom I shared yesterday was gone when I came home yesterday - so they don't last long.


Love this salvia. It is so fluffy looking.

I will be having me some cherry tomatos soon.


Hope you all have a great day.

The multi colored snapdragon is the best!

Yay tomatoes. They are only 3.99 a pound here:(

We're just starting to get flower stalks on our iris, so it will still be a couple of weeks before we can enjoy any blossoms.
I've heard of a coat of many colors, but you have a snapdragon of many colors. It's beautiful.

Lovely blooms you are right about iris flowers not lasting very long. Tomatoes already we are only just about to buy our plants!

Kim and Victoria said...

It's really fun watching your garden which is so far ahead of ours. Great colors! Love that snapdragon and dianthus and I've always loved all salvias. Can't believe you'll be eating tomatoes soon!

Hi Becca Sweetie...
What a glorious share today. I love strolling through your garden. What treasures beheld my eyes.

Your snapdragon is so pretty, and I love, LOVE the Iris. Momma always has them in her gardens and for this brief moment you took me home. Thank you sweet friend. I loved it.

My marigolds and diathus too are so happy. I love the little white edges on the diathus. I planted some as well this year. So pretty and really pops in the garden.

You already have tomatoes? Oh my gosh. I have 7 or 8 blooms but no tomatoes yet. I planted a pot of patio tomatoes on the patio with a cage so they can branch out, but no green babies yet. I keep watching. I so want to grow my own. Yours looks beautiful.

Thank you for sharing with me today. I have so enjoyed my visit sweet friend.

Maybe next week I will join in on Bloomin Tuesday as well. I do have a lot blooming in the garden. Have a glorious Wednesday sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Some nice blooms there. I really like that Salvia. Now the Iris surprises me that the bloom was gone so quickly.
