Blooming Ivy

Has anyone seen blooms on ivy?  I haven't.  While watering my window boxes I spied this pretty little bloom.  I had rescued the ivy from a pot my mom had that wasn't doing very well.  So I planted the ivy in the window box.

Otherwise there is not much going on in the garden.  There are a few blossoms on my wigelia and my shrub roses are starting to bloom again.

The Tiger Lily is blooming as is my hardy mum.  It seems that the hardy mums are blooming way early this year.  Does anyone know why?  Could it be all the rain we've had this summer and then the extreme heat?

I'm joining Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer
and Cottage Flora Thursdays at Fishtail Cottage

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.

Pretty flowers. What was that flower in the Ivy? Hmmm. My garden isn't doing so well from this extreme heat. I think were going to get some rain this weekend-fingers crossed! Have a good weekend.

It has been a hard summer for my garden, but I hope to see some blossoms come along soon! Love your flowers - I have never seen flowers on ivy - must be a different variety!
Hope you have a great day,
