Blooming the day away…. (GBBD June 2008)


The Phlox is just starting to bloom. The Asiatic Lillies and Soapwort have been blooming for the past few days. Orange and Pink is an unusual combination in the garden. Nature is like that.


Alliums planted with Orange-Red Croscosmia that will be blooming tomorrow or the next day. The Salvia and Coreopsis is still blooming their hearts out in the new bed.


Orange-yellow double daylillies intermingle with Purple leaf Cannas. The butterfly bush is starting to come into bloom. It smells heavenly.

    I love the freedom of nature to decide what is best for our gardens. Surprises are what make gardening so energizing. Thanks for sharing your garden. Your flowers are lovely.

    Love my Cottage Garden-

    I agree, the best surprises I’ve had are volunteer plants such as my Tall Verbena. It was probably a seed dropped by a bird. I find Gardening to be very relaxing. Thank you for visiting.

    I like your orange Asiatic lilies. Hmm, I’m on an orange theme now… We’ve got a couple orange ones that will pop-up with color probably in a few weeks. Guess that shows how different our areas are.

    Thanks for visiting and for your bloom day pictures.
