Lilies to Lambs Ear, Lots-a-Blooms Here!

My pink lilies are blooming! I just love these, and have been waiting for them all month. I have them in 3 places, but some broke off this year with wind or kids, who knows? But they multiply....yeah! (I have no idea the name, they came in a mixed bag.) I have white, yellow, orange and pink. And each color all bloom at the same time, like they wait their turn. Isn't that neat?

"The Fairy" Rose, I love how it spills over the rocks up my front walk. I have sweet alyssum from seed blooming with it. Very fairy-like indeed! It is a miniature, only about an inch sized blooms, but many!

Lambs ear looks great this year. I love to touch this plant. It is a great one for when kids visit. Love the grey color too, it looks a bit weird because it is wet. It rained over an inch this afternoon.

Beautiful blue Delphinium, love the white centers. I have several babies this year too, but they are not blooming yet. It is way in the back, hard to get a picture.

"Peach Blossom" Astilbe, it gets better each year. Next to a hydrangea and hostas it is a pretty splash of color.

Walkers Low Catmint.... I LOVE this plant. I bought 3 more this year for my hill. Smells great, great color, and long bloom time. It will almost cover this rock by fall.

"Northern Lights" Snapdragons from seed are really pretty right now. They are tiny, I thought they would be bigger, but very pretty. That is lupine next to it, they are starting to bloom too.

My favorite weed is blooming... Queen Anne's Lace. I have it 3 places and love the fern like foilage and white dancing blooms. They are by the road and driveway where it can go wild.

Here is a basket on the porch in bloom. It is "Huskers Red" Penstemon, Coleus and Red Sedum.
It is over 3 feet tall, and so pretty right now. It is bigger than it looks in the picture.

Here is a close up of the sign. It's true!!

Sorry I have not been posting much. I had another dr's appt yesterday and was gone all day. Things are better, but not 100%, but getting there. Last week of school, holiday, ect.... but I have been reading the blogs and everyone's pictures are so pretty. Have a great evening....


  1. Glad your eye is improving! My lily will soon be blooming too! It has really multiplied this year and I can't wait to see it!

    My lambs ears has gotten completely out of control! I don't have that much space to have it taking over the flower beds. I do like though and the bees love the blooms.

  2. You are ahead of me, I have quite a few of the same plants but most are still buds. I love the rose, it's so sweet.
    Hope your eye is getting better!

  3. Beautiful flowers! We're not at the lily stage yet here in Nova Scotia. My iris are just starting to show buds (for the 1st time! Yeah!).

    I love the Lambs Ears. I didn't realize how pretty the blossoms are. Gotta get me some!

  4. Your garden sure is looking very pretty. A friend is picking me up this morning and we are going to a plant sale. I can hardly wait to see what is for sale.

  5. I've never seen a penstemon in a container arrangement before - but I love it! I have them all over my garden. Now I want to dig one up and it in a container. Great idea! -Jackie

  6. HI Brooke, that asiatic lily is such a beautiful shade of pink! I'm excited mine are budding but the deer did get to some so no blooms on those stalks..drat! And that prarie rose is adorable. Do you spray your roses? I'm dealing with 'holey' leaves already! Have a great Sunday :)

  7. I like your "style". It was a joy to visit your garden. I'm learning SO much that adds to my ability to appreciate and improve our own yard/garden. Thanks!

  8. So enjoyed my visit and your many lovely photos ... Happy June Gardening!

  9. Hi Brooke! The Midwest is so ahead of us! Your blooms are beautiful. Love everything, especially that lily! I love that they multiply!

  10. should link up to the fertilizer friday post...and share all this great stuff!!!
