What's Blooming Now?

 
I know there has been more than a few garden realated post of late.  If your not into gardening, I appoigize and ask you to hang in there a little longer with me.  This time of year with my gardens in bloom I tend to get a little carried away!  Within the month, I'll be back to my normal activities inside the house with plenty of projects to share but for now I'm going to enjoy the wonderful summer sunshine and the pretty blooms from my garden.
 
This morning I walked around my yard taking photos of some of my favorite flowers in bloom.  They turned out so well I've decided to make a quick post about them.
 
Here's what's blooming now.
 
 
Annabelle Hydrangea . . . .


 
Spiera Shrubs in a delightful pale pink/purple color . . .

 
Shrub Roses in pink . . .


 
Campula (I think) in pale purple. . . .

 
Potentilla shrub in white . . .

 
This shrub is one of my favorites.  It blooms all season long and always looks amazing.


Garden Phlox in pink . . . 


Tickseed Coreposis in yellow . . . 


More shrub roses in a darker pink color . . . 


 
Meadow Sage in puple . . . 


 
And finally, this plant that for the life of my I can not remember what it is.  I know that somewhere along the line I knew the name but I just can't recall it right now.  Can anyone help me out?

  1. I love seeing garden posts and have shared a few of my own. We have short summers so I like to get as much out of it as I can. I saw campanula at a garden walk this summer and want to get some for my garden next year.

  2. I love the Potentilla, I need to see if I can find that for my garden, how often do you come across a bush that flowers for more than a week? Your pink Phlox is gorgeous, I have always wanted to grow them and just never have. Some day, I hope to.
    Hugs, Cindy
