Growing On In The Garden

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. My brother and his wife are in town, and my daughter’s best friend is staying with us this weekend, so it’s a really full house. And while they’re all sleeping, let’s take a stroll around my garden and see what’s growing on. And I won’t say a word. We’ll walk around slowly and simply look at the flowers without me rambling on in your ear. And if there’s a particular plant you are curious about, just ask me.

Shall we?

Okay, we’re off...shhhh...quietly. I don't want the others to wake up.









































And that’s it for today. Now, let’s go get some coffee...

  1. Beautiful! And you did all that without coffee? My photos would be a hot-mess with no caffeine in me!

    1. Thank you, Sasha. The one that looks like a tiger lily is Lilium 'Royal Sunset'. It produces the most gorgeous blooms.

  7. Oh, what a lovely stroll! Thanks, Martha. Oh, by the way...*whispering so I won't wake the others* what is the seventh picture down, the pinkish purple blossom? We have a wildflower here that looks like that called spotted knapweed or star thistle, so I was wondering if it's the same flower. I have always loved it.

    1. I'm so glad you came along for the stoll, Beth! The 7th photo down is the Centaurea dealbata, commonly referred to as persian cornflower, whitewash cornflower or - you guessed it - knapweed! I just added it this year and it's eager to show off its blooms despite how small the plant still is.

  8. The flowers look gorgeous. Some I recognize, some are not familiar. Glad that you were blessed with a good weather for your walk. In my side of the world, it's been raining hard since yesterday and some streets are already flooded.
