It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Hello Everyone!  Yes, it's that time again.  I do love Bloomin' Tuesday.  It's always great to see how everyone's garden is progressing, all done from the comfort of one's own home no less!  Be sure to check out all the wonderful garden's at Jean's blog.


My pink perennial baby's breath is doing very well this year. 

Here is a shot of the middle garden bed, looking toward the garden shed/playhouse.  The cornflowers are blooming and the white spots behind are peonies.
I thought these little guys were dead as they didn't do very much last year.  I'm glad to see they are back in full force.

My soapwort loves this spot in the garden bed by the house.  Just behind it you can see the silvery white of snow-in-summer.

I'm really loving this red dianthus.  I hope the soapwort doesn't crowd it out though.  Will have to keep it in check if it does.

Here's a closer look at the dianthus.

My peonies finally bloomed.  Here is Raspberry Sundae.

My delphiniums are getting ready to bloom.  Next week perhaps!

This bloom was so heavy I had to hold it upright to get a decent shot.  Unfortunately, I don't remember the name and the marker is gone.

Isn't this a beauty? 

An incredible white called Pillow Talk.

I just had to bring some in to enjoy. They smell heavenly!


  1. Hi MF,
    Love the peony colors. What a nice bouquet they make.

    I also really like the red dianthus/soapwort combo. The dianthus would be pretty alone, but that splash of pink at its feet, puts it over the top!

    Hope all is well with you and you are staying cool.

  2. Your gardens are looking fabulous! Your peonies are amazing! For some reason your link is not working but I can go back and fix it. I hope everyone will find you! Jean

  3. So pretty!

  4. I learn something new every week on Bloomin' Tuesday! Soapwort is new to me. Very pretty!

  5. Your blooms are beautiful, and all your beds. Great color! I will say, though, I'm jealous you have peonies blooming. They are my absolute fave flower, and mine are long past now.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely gardens.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
