An Overdue Update

This evening I went out to the flower beds to take photos of my bloomers. Not those kinda bloomers!

White daylily.

Pink and yellow asiatic lily.

The pink phlox survived the nasty bug infestation.

Another mystery flower. Anyone know what this is?

Moonbeam coreopsis.

Kiwi vine.

Grape daylilies.

Gooseneck Loosestrife. A rare plant I think.

A flock of geese!

Gooseneck up close.

Goldenrod. Which always blooms in June for me.

Gloriosa daisy in all it's glory.

Balloon flower.

Tammie, those are beautiful. I have heard of balloon flowers but haven't seen them and I really like them. They are my favorite color too!

Wow! That balloon flower is beautiful, as are the lilies and pink phlox. Those goosenecks are very interesting...they really do look like a flock of geese! One patch of my gloriosas are standing up straight like yours, the other patch looks healthy but need something to hold them up I guess, as they are laying down. I wonder why your goldenrod blooms so early? Do they bloom again in the fall?

Tammie said...

Unfortunately, the goldenrod doesn't bloom in the fall. I planted it next to an aster, thinking the gold and purple combo would look good, but the goldenrod blooms months earlier than it's suppose to!

Forgot to add that I use those small tomato cages, cut in half, for flower supports. They also protect the young plants from two rowdy Ratties that love running through the beds!

Kathleen Coy said...

Good idea!
And yeah, rowdy ratties can really do a number on the flowers...

Beautiful pics! I especially love the pink and yellow Asiatic lily--do you know what the name of that particular one is?
