Botanical Blooms (for GBBD July)

There was nothing new blooming in my yard as of today so I figured I would share all the nice blooms I saw at the Botanical Gardens yesterday. These are plants I don’t have growing in my garden so that makes them interesting to me as well. I hope you enjoy my Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day this July 15th 2008. To see more GBBD posts please visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens to view her wonderful blooms as well as see everyone else who posted for GBBD July 15th 2008.

    Botanical gardens are always nice and I so think you and your husband had the perfect anniversary together to visit one together.

    I was just going to say that you have many plants I’m unfamiliar with; then I read your comment about visiting the Botanic Gardens. That explains it! It’s always fun to see new and different plants, isn’t it? My problem, though, is that then my plant wish list gets longer and longer!

    Thanks Deb, I had a wonderful visit to the Botanical Gardens yesterday.

    I agree Tina, it was my hubby’s idea because he knows how much I love gardens. I wouldn’t of suggested it myself, but he enjoyed it too.

    Visiting Botanical Gardens in your area Rose is a great way to see what will grow in your area. I agree though, it did make my wish list longer. lol

    Thanks Mom, I was drawn to that particular rose for some reason. They must have thousands of roses there, it was slightly overwhelming. lol

    Loved the botanical tour…I think I have the Stokes Aster you photographed. Peachie’s Pick is what it looks like.

    Visiting all the gardenblog is another way to increase one’s wish list!

    Now I must have that oakleaf hydrangea…

    Thanks Gail. I’m glad you enjoyed the botanical slideshow tour. The stokes aster was planted in their meadow garden with other wildflowers. I loved the oakleaf hydrangea myself, but then again I’m hydrangea obsessed. Thanks for visiting.

    Thank you for visiting Washington Gardener. I’m glad you enjoyed the slideshow.

    Perennial Gardener, I made a goof and posted as my mother-so sorry for the confusion! My mother’s screen name is Jean and I am Tina. Silly me!

    Thank you Susie, I’m glad you liked the slideshow. We had a wonderful time. I would love to visit in the early spring when the azaleas are blooming, it’s suppose to be spectacular.
