Blooming Now

Garden flowers

I confess that I am trying hard to catch up with the weeding in my gardens. So far, the weeds are winning but I am beginning to make a bit of headway.  If you ignore the weeds, this is some of what you can see today.

Largest square: pink climbing rose. Moving clockwise: Echinacea (just beginning to bloom), Johnson's Blue cranesbill, alium, ditch lily (YES, I have some blooming in the ditch - remember, I do live in a rural area) bellflower.

Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

Trimming and mowing can be a pain, but stop and smell.... ah, photograph the flowers.

This sounds very familiar EG, my garden is a constant work in progress :) your beautiful blooms are making me look forward to spring and summer.

William Kendall said...

Very pretty, EG!

Karen S. said...

Lovely blossoms! Every time I go out to my flower beds, or gardens I ask myself, will I ever catch up. The answer lately, NO!

Revrunner said...

Nice bouquet, EG.

Rose said...

These are beautiful...just love all the colors. I need to get an alium...have loved them for a long time and don't know why I haven't planted at least one!

RedPat said...

I'm sure your garden must look lovely with all those blooms, EG!

Karen said...

THey are all so pretty!

Lisa Gordon said...

I'm not sure one EVER catches up with weeding! :-)

This is such a pretty mosaic. All the wonderful colors of summer.

They are lovely to look at and wonderful series of colors.

Jack said...

My garden needs weeding, too, but I don't know where the time is going to be found.

Viola said...

Beautiful collage and flowers! :) I never seem to make any collage, even if I often am thinking of making one..
The echinea is awesome, so are all of them!
The weeds are complicated plants. And they are so good to imitate the plants we plant, aren't they!
:)

Debbie said...

all that is beautiful about summer!! i love those colors and all the different shapes and sizes!!

i have been trying to ignore the weeds and it has been so difficult this year!!

Carole M. said...

they're each beautiful in their own right but I think my eye goes to that 'blousy' soft pink rose

Janie said...

My weeds are definitely on the rise, but the flowers are coming through anyway. Yours are lovely!

Michelle said...

These are some beautiful specimens!

Just beautiful! I miss Ontario summers and my garden.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I've decided to embrace the weeds! Lovely shots!

Barb said...

I have a lot of green and budding - hopefully, this week some blooms! I just planted a white Echinacea. Yes, those weeds are persistent!

Gail Dixon said...

I so enjoyed this tour of your garden. Never heard of the ditch lily, but I'll bet that's what we have in some of the fields here. Weeding is a never ending chore. Go easy on yourself; it's been a rough few months for you.

Carver said...

The flowers are delightful.

maryaustria said...

A beautiful collage of flowers! Great!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I don't see a single weed there ... you're doing a great job ;>).... shoot, just take the wonderful pictures and call it good. The flowers really are beautiful

Rambling Woods said...

Oh summer flowers.. nothing better. Thank you for linking into Nature Notes Tina...Michelle

Hannah said...

Beautiful flowers, I had a Campanula similar to yours come up by itself for the second year. My Echinaceas are still a ways off from blooming. I love the hardy geraniums, some of them keep me from weeding as much, but like you I am still struggling with weeds, trying to get to them all before they go to seed.

eileeninmd said...

a lovely variety of colors and flowers. Beautiful images.

Leora said...

It's like a quilt of pretty colors. I have echinacea about to bloom; a neighbor has alium. I like the emphasis of pink and blue with a shock of orange.

Pat Tillett said...

Your garden looks pretty good to me! Beautiful photos...

Ileana said...

Beautiful! I love echinacea.
