This patch of seeds put out last month is doing so good. I think you identified these as blue bedder salvia. If wrong please correct me.
The penta is struggling to open a flower. The pentas don't seem to like it in my gardens. Oh well there are others that do.
Did you guys hear me singing to the top of my voice when I walked out and found this baby open. I've been anxiously waiting on this. I put out 6 Iris last year and this is all I've got so far. There are 4 other buds on this one. This one is called Full Tide.
As you can see on the package it doesn't look like this one. I like what I got best though because you know I love my purple and pinks.
And speaking of pinks I have to show my Strawberry Parfait Dianthus again. I'm in love here.
And with this sweet thing too. I love the pom pom like balls it puts on.
After all the other azaleas have bloomed out here comes the this one. This is the late bloomer every year and I'm glad that it blooms after the others are gone. It puts on rose like flowers all over it.
I didn't do much gardening work this weekend. Shame on me... not. Well I'm kinda planning now. I started off like I was gonna garden when I made a visit to Lowe's this weekend. I spotted so many things I want to go back and buy but I settled on a start to a shade garden that I was gonna do this weekend but... then I changed my mind. I'm about to make a new garden right along the front of the house where I cut down the shrubs a couple of weeks ago. But its something I'll be working on for a couple of weeks. Get back to ya on that. (I could change my mind again).
I love hostas and these 4 will be nice starters.
Never seen a Persian Shield before but I love the contrast in color and texture.
I was wanting another hydrangea and am happy to find a nice healthy one here from Endless Summer collection.
Oops the caladiums didn't load. Bought a few caladiums too and they will look nice next to the Persian Shield and the hostas.
I swear this is a zinnia but I don't remember a seeing one with such huge leaves so early on.
This is one of the mystery plants. Do you know?
I believe this is okra hibuscus.
Last year this area was full of dahlias. Why are they no shows this year? I pulled weeds from this bed but haven't seen any dahlias from last year.
I'm happy to see that my begonias will be returning on their own.
Hope you all have a great day.
