One of the new things blooming this week is the Salvia ‘Coral Nymph’. It’s an annual type that The Queen of Seaford shared seeds of with me during one of our visits last summer. Don’t you love this soft pink & white combo? I do! Definitely will be collecting seed and/or ordering to plant next season. Currently it resides in a large container with the dormant Snapdragons that will bloom again in the fall. After a much needed rainfall this past week the Salvia ‘Mystic Spires’ and Penstemon ‘Pike’s Peak’ are in full bloom again. Both of these are very easy perennials to grow. This Zinnia (oklahoma series) is a volunteer from last summer and is really do well. Maybe it will reseed again for me. The ornamental Oregano ‘Kent’s Beauty’ almost succumbed to the heat last month but has bounced back and is blooming now. ‘Pinky Winky’ still isn’t looking pink to me but the white blooms brighten up the shady corner where it resides. My sedum ‘Rosy Glow’ that I mentioned late last month is in full bloom now. And I finally got a photo of a Nasturium ‘Peach Melba’ flower fully open. I love the little orange spots on the face of it.

This week for Bloomin’ Tuesday I have mosty shades of pink and purple with a dash of blue, white and yellow thrown in for good measure.
