I know I’ve been going on and on about my Hydrangea “Limelight”. But doesn’t it look fantastic in full bloom surrounded by those burgundy Cannas? The flowers are all fully open now and it is really a showstopper in the garden at the moment. This is the view from my kitchen window.
I bought a few new plants the other day and a couple of them are blooming at the moment. This is Elfin Thyme. It is a low growing groundcover that prefers sun-part shade. I have this planted in my Woodland Garden. (Which gets morning sun) I love the dainty blue flowers.
I know this looks pitiful, but since my Clematis “Niobe” usually blooms in May I was kind of excited to see this one lonely little bloom yesterday. This is a prolific bloomer for me from about late April-May. I wish I could of gotten this in focus, because this picture doesn’t do it justice. The petals are a deep garnet red with a magenta stripe down the center. The flowers are large. This Daylilly has been blooming for over a month now, and there are still a few buds left to open. When I went to the Botanical Gardens last week they had this blooming so now I know the name again. It’s name is “Colorful Summer”. The name is fitting, don’t you think?
I have lots more blooming that has been blooming on and off for the past couple of weeks. What’s blooming in your garden at the moment? For more Bloomin’ Tuesday posts be sure to visit Ms Green Thumb.
