  • Mood:

garden!

[sorry about the repost - the rich text editor wrecked the previous one]

Today's bloom count:
  • Pink shrub rose (back yard): 42
  • Red climbing rose (front porch): 108
  • Pink rose (front yard): 17
  • White rose (front yard): 10
Over the past week, the shrub rose in the back yard has been walloped in the bloom count by the climbing red rose on the front porch.  108 so far.

However, both pale in comparison to the climbing peach rose on the trellis in the back yard, which kind of exploded over the weekend.  Here's what it looked like on Saturday ...



Here's what it looked like earlier this evening (Monday), with probably twice as many blooms ...

A close-up of the trellis rose ...

... and another.
The mock orange in the back yard ...

... and again.
A calla lily in the back yard just popped up.

One of the several clumps of hostas in the back yard.
Some fuschias ...
I cheated on these, I guess, since they're store-bought.


But my peonies aren't. :)
Now for a bunch of stuff I don't know the names of.
First off, another cool purple thing.

(The rest of the plant looks like this.)


Not sure what these pretty things are either.

EDIT: fizzygeek tells me this is a Sicilian Honey Lily.
I've seen these before, but the name escapes me.

EDIT: it's a foxglove (thanks Rose).


And I have several clumps of these around.
Some bleeding hearts.

Lavender? Sage? Rosemary?
