What's Blooming

Yum
I should have an update on the veggie garden later this week. 
In the mean time, here is a look at the pretty blooms we are enjoying!


Miniature Bleeding Hearts

White Bleeding Hearts

Pink Bleeding Hearts

Creeping Phlox

Not sure what this plant is. Do you?
It didn't grow at my parents, so we moved it here a couple years ago, and it's finally happy!

The only annuals I have managed to get planted. Some Pansies.

And of course, our lilacs.


A brief appearance by Hazel during the photo shoot.
Queen of the Hill is near by, so Hazel has her ears back and is ready to dart :)


What's in bloom in your yard?

  3. Looks like the chicken didn't get your beautiful flowers. Thanks for the stories. here along the coast of Misissippi, in bloom is gardenias ,pansies are gone, roses lavender,pineapple sage from last year full bloom, finish peas and now in the vegetable garden is peppers and tomatoes. The hummingbirds are all around the pineapple sage.Looks like a busy summer in the yard and the garden here.

    1. Lol! No, the chickens didn't seem to have an interest in the flowers fortunately! Your garden sounds wonderful! You just reminded me, I should get our hummingbird feeder up and going... thank you for that!

  5. The blue flowers are called bluebells. They bloom here in Wisconsin this time of year and usually live in damp/wet areas. They are beautiful but only last a day or so if picked.

    1. Thank you! I will do some research on bluebells. I think they are going to be one of my favorites :)

    2. Nope they are not bluebells. It's a plant called, Lungwort. See this link:

      Your flowers are so pretty. It's a great time of the year for sure when we get to enjoy lovely flowers like these.

  6. The jasmine and roses are at their prime. The weather is about to turn HOT and the blooms will slow down. The tomatoes are blooming and I see little tomatoes. They need the HOT weather. Your blooms look elegant.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
    Linda

  7. So pretty. I have a packet of seeds that look like the blue flowers and it says California Bluebells. I tried planting them but nothing happened. I think it snowed after I planted them. I can't believe the lilacs are blooming. We are going to miss them? :(

    1. You might not miss them. Things are going to be cool for a while, so hammer down and get here and you should get to see them!

    1. I wonder if bleeding hearts grow in your area? If you are starting to get into the flower gardening, be careful.... it becomes very addicting!

    1. It sure is! After so many months of brown, and then white the color is so welcome!

  10. I just love your garden, Kris. I bought a house and moved in December. Still getting settled but I have a small backyard that has nothing planted in it! Yup...but at least it's a blank canvas. I hope to put a lilac bush there, some blue hydrangeas, some peonies and definitely bleeding hearts, because we had them in my yard growing up. My dad used to pull them apart gently to show us the 7 parts of a bleeding heart. Each part looked like something else...a couple of rabbits, a pair of skates....an exclamation point, and I'm blocking on the other 2....but try it and tell me what you see! : )

    1. Anne ~ I am SO excited for you! Will you have room for some herbs or veggies along side the pretty flowers?
      I will have to pull apart a bleeding heart this weekend! I don't recall ever doing that.

      Let's email soon and catch up :)

    1. Thanks, Carla!
      It does smell so lovely walking out our front door and smelling the lilacs.
      I hope they hang around for as long as they can :)
