Bloomin' Tuesday

It's Bloomin Tuesday ya'll. So glad to see Jean getting us going this year with some lovely blooms. Especially good since so many of us have been enjoying an early spring.

Couldn't ask for a prettier weekend. Blue skies - temps around 80 - light breeze - low humidity - it was just right. Hope you had a nice weekend too. I couldn't help but to get outside and enjoy the weather and my gardens.

Mandevilla.


 Dianthus.

Verbena.

I love these tiny little triple blooms on the daffodils. This is the last of the daffs to bloom.

Spirea - we call it bridal wreath.

My favorite azalea. This one blooms after all the others have lost their flowers. The shrub is loaded with buds.


Worked on this bed a little more. Looks like a half a dog bone. Maybe I should keep the shape and call it Buddy's garden. LOL

This lonely little geranium. More will be joining this baby soon.

Moss Rose. Love these hardy little plants.

We bought a tangerine tree. It is named Dandy Tangerine. It is loaded with little fruit already.

This is what the weekend and today looks like. Beautiful and pleasant. This is why I like living on the Gulf Coast of Alabama.

Hope you all have a fabulous day.

PS My mother will be in surgery in the morning. Please keep her in your prayers.

Those flowers are awesome and I love the picture of the sky. I will keep your Mother in my prayers! I hope it goes really well for her! It's all gonna be ok Becky!

Your Spirea and Azalea blooms are so beautiful Becca. I like the shape of your flowerbed. Your geranium is a pretty one. Moss Rose are great for hot dry weather. I have had an awful time getting some of them started from seeds this year. It takes them a very long time to germinate indoors. Well be praying for your Mama.

Love, as always, your pretty, pretty garden! Your beds are sooo beautiful...don't you love the smell of freshly turned dirt? I love visiting your garden and really can appreciate all the work you put into them! I mislabeled my post somehow, but if you view my sunday post, you can have a look-see of my garden...Thanks for sharing your beauty! Hugs

Prayers lifting for Mother, Becca. Let us know how she does.

Your gardens are beautiful. So many luscious pretties to brighten ones day.

Our daffodils are G O N E !!! what with this heat wave this last month in MD. Boo-hoo! They barely lasted a week. Now we had a hard frost last night & tonight also. Things are about 3+ weeks ahead of schedule here. The rhodies are already in bloom. Worries me as I truly enjoy them in the proper time schedule ...

Have a lovely day ~
TTFN ~

Good thought for your mom for sure! This time of the year is so much fun, getting the old muscles moving again. I love that triple daff and that azalea looks like a double, beautiful!

Patsy said...

Your place is going to be beautiful with so much color.
Will be thinking of you and your mother.

Beautiful flowers. I'll have to wait for mine to bloom for a bit longer, Still cold and rainy in Washington State!

I cannot believe the colour in your garden. I am so far behind. My thoughts will be with both you and your Mum. Diane

Love it all especially the spirea. Will pray for your mom.

Jean said...

Becca, It's great to see you again! Your garden is looking good. I love the daffodil! Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!

Daisy said...

You have much to enjoy in your gardens, Becca. I love the moss rose too, with all the different colors. Prayers for your Mom. I hope all goes well.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Becca, I will definitely continue to pray for your mother. Keep us posted.

Your spring/summer blooms are gorgeous. Most of our daffodils are gone now (darn)--but our Dianthus has not bloomed yet... The deer ate the leaves off of our two front azaleas during the winter --so not sure how many blooms we'll have on them this year...

Have a great week.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hope your mother's surgery goes well. Your azalea is amazing! And I love the name "Buddy's garden"! :) Those skies do look like picture perfect weather.
