Garden Flowers

Here are some of the flowers blooming in the garden now.

The white flower is a Gas Plant (Dictamnus) given to me by a friend last summer.  This is it's first bloom.  My Lambs Ears and Hardy Geranium are doing well.

The last of my peonies in the back yard.  They bloom later than the ones by the house.

My Hydrangeas are starting to bloom.

The nursery has 50% off annuals so I bought a few flowers for my old rusty grill and the basket on my bike..

Love your flowers and especially that rusty old bike!

That peony is so pretty. I love your rusty accents. Annuals are already 50% off in your area? Wow. They don't usually get marked down here until after July 4. I do love to get good buys like that.

Your flowers look beautiful, Barb.
I can only imagine how gorgeous everything looks in your yard. I especially love the rusty, old bike!
By the way, your package went out. :) :)
Hope you love everything...
And thank you for the beautiful comment on my daughter's graduation.
Huge hugs xo

Your garden is looking great, Barb. I'm a big fan of peonies and I really like the blue flowers. Your bike idea is so clever. I haven't got the "whimsy" thing down at all!

Good Morning Barb!
Oh what beautiful flowers you have!
You are lucky to have such gorgeous hydrageas too.
They are on my garden 'wish list'.

How charming that old, rusty bike is. What an eye catcher with the flowers growing out of the basket.

Have a happy day!!

Looks like we have a lot of the same plants in our gardens. :) I guarantee you'll love your gas plant all the more as the years go by. The plant grows slowly with more stems every year.

Mari said...

I love your flowers! The variety of peonies you have is so pretty. Mine never bloomed this year, because of several hard frosts. The bike is charming!

Hiya Barb,
Your garden is lovely, especially your whimsical touches. The picket fence behind the bike is a great touch.
I'm finally back from vacation and spoiling that new grandbaby; thanks for your kind words. Have a lovely weekend.
