I'm happy that I found a few new plants to feature today. I was about to get bored with the same old blooms. Not that they aren't pretty by any means but it sure is nice to see new things.
I shared this one yesterday but I think it deserves a repeat. I'm proud of the Jean Marie Dahlia.
The bougainvilla is revisiting with some new blooms. I've never seen one as it was going into a bloom stage. It appears as if it is taking on new leaves and growth and then this. The blooms start out looking like leaves and are turning pink as they age. Neat.
Glad to see the milkweed blooming now. I've noticed some activity but not as much as it should be. But I expect it'll pick up soon.
I can't get enough of the geranium. I think the name is strawberry sherbet. Ya'll correct me if I'm wrong.
I have two shades of the butterfly weed. This one is more on the pink/fushia side. They are very hard to photograph.
While this one is more purple. It is blurry - sorry. The flowers in the background look nice this way though.
The marigolds are looking nice now. I gave everything a fresh shot of Miracle Gro Bloom Burst this weekend. I think bloom burst works pretty quick - perhaps within 36-48 hours. I noticed a big difference. You can see the nemesia behind the marigold taking on new blooms as well.
This is my first year to have the Shasta Daisy. They sure do get bigger than I thought. But they are so pretty. The plants are full of buds.
Today I'll be joining the following parties:
Ya'll head on over and check out these parties and see the other blooms gardeners are sharing today.
Hope you have a great day.
