Growing Like Weeds

 
Just a few photos of what's going on in my yard and gardens over the past couple of weeks.
 
 



 
 
Yellow Knock Out Rose.

 
 
Geranium and dusty miller makes a good combination however I may be taking out the dusty miller as it is crowding the geranium. I've cut it back a lot but it is very happy here. I've never seen such stalks on dusty miller before.



 
Snapdragons are one of my favorite flowers as they perform beautifully for me and the blooms are just so pretty.

 
This was taken a couple of weeks ago and I must get another photo for you as it is so much more full since this was taken. Some of the empty spots have seeds up. There are dahlia's and astilbe coming up in the back. Now that the seeds are up pretty well I can begin to fill in some spots with plants.







oops-

 
Gerbera Daisy's

 
begonia
 
 
salvia

 
dahlia's

 
astilbe

 




 
I am tickled to death that I have lots of buds on the foxglove. The plant is huge. 


 
 
All of the garden beds still have plenty of room for more plants. I'm beginning to think we have too much gardening going on. 










 
I forgot the name on this one and can't read it.
 
 
delphinium
 
 
We are having another cool spell and I know all you folks up north are wondering where spring is. It is behind this year. Hope you soon get lots of warm weather.
 
Prayers for our country. Things are a mess everywhere. Ya'll stay safe.
 
Have a nice day.

"TOO MUCH GARDENING GOING ON"? Really is there any such thing? I have had to just go ahead and confess to hubbie- I am a plant addict and I don't care! We gardeners will declare we can't get not one more thing in the beds and still drag plants home! It's just kind of mental illness i think! Have a great week! Carol

I envy you that foxglove. I do enjoy snapdragons and I have lots of salvia. "Lots of gardening going on" is good.

I am really starting to like snapdragons now. Everything looks wonderful in your yard.

Carol said...

Your gardens are beautiful & inspiring me to get outside & plant. We've had to hold off with flowers & ferns because of the late freezes we're having here in Oklahoma.

Smiles,
Carol
