Bloomin Tuesday

(From upper L-R across & down: Clematis Snow Queen, Allium Purple Sensation, unknown yellow Iris, Rosa Morning Magic, Clematis Dr Ruppel and unknown purple Iris)

Every year I look forward to the first blooms of the season.  While all the other roses in my garden are budding up right now ‘Morning Magic’ beat them to the punch.  It’s a climber that I have planted on my metal arch in the Arbor Garden.  Pretty soon it will be mass of these pretty pink and yes fragrant blossoms.  Now ‘Snow Queen’ and Dr Ruppel were not the first Clematis to bloom this spring since ‘Niobe’ beat them by a week.  But they were the first to green up so they will get a honorable mention in this post.  Their looking pretty lovely growing together on the shed trellis.  The unknown yellow Iris and purple Iris are definitely the first of the Irises to bloom this season.  They both were pass-a-longs from two of my generous neighbors years ago.  Another first is this ‘Purple Sensation’ Allium that is starting to open in the raised garden bed out front.  All my other alliums are budding up but this is the first bloom. I forgot I planted a few bulbs in this bed.  To see more Bloomin’ Tuesday posts or to join in this week please visit our host Jean @ Ms Greenthumb.

  4. I love the diversity that you have in your garden. I primarily grow flowers from bulbs but on occasion fall for something different here and there.

    Thanks Rowena. I fall in love with so many plants that my garden becomes quite a mix match of stuff. :)

  6. You do a great job of identifying your plants! I’m working on knowing and listing the names of mine.

  8. So much bloomin’ goin’ on! Don’t you love ‘forgotten’ plants? We are just beginning to get some green on the trees so it will be awhile before we have much color. So glad I get to enjoy yours! Jean

    It won’t be long now once the trees start to leaf out Jean. Glad I could share my color with you though. :)
