The Day Lilies are the highlight at the moment, but there's a lot more than them blooming. together they add a lot of colour, and they illustrate a great variety of flower forms very well. Here they are.
This is the first of the Dahlias and it's very small. Mrs. F.G. is disappointed in these and probably won't plant any next year. They're a lot of trouble as the roots have to be dug up and kept inside over the winter.
The Hostas are blooming all over the place. This is one out front that I can get close to.
We have just one Sweet William flower out back, a bright red.
The Lavender is doing really well this year, blooming away for weeks now.
This is a new one for me, a Calendula. I have to remember that for next summer.
One of my favourites is this Pink. I hope it develops into a larger patch over time.
And just yesterday the Crocosmia came out in flower. I can see this one right ouitside the front window.
One of our most distinctive and unusual plants is this Bear's Breeches. It has leaves a bit like thistles, with the flowers on tall spikes. Over time it can grow into a big quite striking plant.
Here's a closer look at the blooms, quite a different flower form as I mentioned. All the flower parts are held up inside the flower, under that hood
That's all for now folks!
You must take such joy from your new garden!ReplyDelete
Nice collection! My sister and I are growing Calendula this year for it's skin healing properties.ReplyDelete
Wow, beautiful flowers and such a wide variety. Several of these are new to me. Enjoy the color!ReplyDelete
Such pretty flowers - Love all of them.ReplyDelete
These are lovely.ReplyDelete
The bears' breeches flowers look like an orchid; it's not, but the individual flowers resemble those of the showy orchid.ReplyDelete
Beautiful flowers. Do you have Hummingbirds coming to the Crocosmia?ReplyDelete
It's easy to keep seed from the Calendula. One of the favorites here. I planted pink and purple pinks this year. I hope they take. They smell lovely.ReplyDelete
Such gorgeous blooms. The bear’s breeches is a new one for me.ReplyDelete
Our daylilies are pretty well in full bloom now, and the echinacea -- lots of that and it tends to spread too, which is fine by me.ReplyDelete
You folks sure have a wide variety and great selection of flowers and plants.ReplyDelete
I often wonder how many flower-names I learn every year, only to forget them again. I've seen Bear's Breeches growing in one of the college gardens in Cambridge which are huge plants.ReplyDelete
You know acanthus grows in the forum in Rome right next to broken Roman columns carved with acanthus leaves?ReplyDelete
I sure enjoyed seeing all your beautiful flowers. I have also been enjoying the crocosmia in bloom around here, too! That last plant is really different! Thanks for the closeup.ReplyDelete
