What's In Bloom

What's in bloom in your garden? These are a few flowers that are in bloom in mine right now. My roses are blooming like crazy. I'm particularly fond of these Happy Chappy Shrub roses in shades of orange, apricot, pink. Their scent is sweet, very aromatic and they will bloom all summer. A couple of varieties of poppies are in bloom, these pink poppies are amazing and grow 3-4 feet tall and will bloom all summer. I grow as many flowers from seed as possible. There is something about nurturing and watching things grow that appeals to me very much. Many of my flowers were started from seeds that friends gave me. This is also another favorite past time, collecting and sharing seeds. My mother had amazing gardens, I'm sure that is where my love of flowers originated. Do you enjoy gardening? What are your favorite flowers?

I definitely haven't inherited my father's very green fingers; but I do enjoy admiring the fruits of other peoples labour. Sweet Pea are my very favourite flower.

Julie, I had that same Hollyhock variety but because it doesn't winter over here on Cape Cod they are no more. Right now my Stella D'Oro Daylilies are blooming along with my roses called Martha's Vineyard. Beautiful little pink roses!!

my daylilies are doing super great right now - the flower carpet roses are in full bloom and I hope they keep going all summer. The hydrangeas are getting ready and my tomatoes are coming along!

A few weeks ago our yard was really blooming with all the perennials. I like gardening but not in a huge way ;-)
