Bloomin Tuesday – last one of May

Calibrachoa ‘Strawberry Punch’

It’s that time of the week again when we show off what’s blooming in our gardens.  This is the last Bloomin’ Tuesday of May, time has flown by so quickly. In the first collage I’ve posted a photo of my Oakleaf Hydrangea ‘Little Honey’ blooming as well as the first of the Shasta Daisies and my only Yorktown Onion bloom this season.    I don’t add many annuals to my garden every year, but I always make an exception for great ones like Calibrachoa.  This ‘Strawberry Punch’ was a new selection from Proven Winners. Hopefully it loves my favorite terra-cotta pot and just gets bigger and better over the summer.  To see more Bloomin’ Tuesday posts or to join in this week on the fun, please visit our host  Jean @ Ms Greenthumb.

    Your flowers are beautiful and I love the colors of your new annual! Would you mind letting me know what program you’re using to add the little pics to your bigger one, that looks neat:@)

  12. Beautiful blooms Racquel. I especially like the Calibrachoa. They do well in our summer heat. Can you believe May is already over? :)

    Thanks Linda. The Calibrachoa seems to be everyone’s favorite today. ;) Nope, but it feels like July already here…so hot!

  13. Nice blooms! I like that oak leaf hydrangea. I think that’s the kind I planted one year in the planter next to our porch. It didn’t bloom the first year, then died over the winter.

    Thanks Sue. I guess you have to be really patient and hope for the best with these guys.
