What's blooming in your garden? Let's share some pictures. I'll start. Here is Petunia Harrah Lavender some call it supertunia.
Share splash of colors from your garden
The Medusa I have never seen, thanks for sharing. EFGeorgia1 your iris arrangement is very pretty. Judy I love your Meredith Bohls rose, and the classic white picket fence!
Thank you, Farmerpickle (love that name :-). It's been a long slow road just to even get started. If things look decent in a while, I hope to start a thread showing what it was, and what it is.
Judy, everything looks beautiful in your yard. Hello Laurel, haven't seen you in a while!
This was meant to be private mail but the sentiments were true for those who read it.

Thank you for the comments about my yard looking beautiful ... that's because I haven't shown you the ratty parts, LOL. It really is bare bones around here.
And, Cedar, that lily is really HOT!
Laurel, not quite sure what your post means. Maybe I just got here too late and only got the edited version. :-)
(Edited to correct a typo. Hate myself when I do that!)

judy - thinking of taking 'her' (Cancun) on the road with that hot act!
What is this "baby blanket rose"? I'm not familiar with it. Beautiful.
yes, Cedar, that Cancun is a beauty. Glad she survived.
Woo hoo, Cedar. I can just hear the Latin music now and Cancun "doin' her thing" dancin' down the road to Meh-hi-co! LOL
That Baby Blanket is a rose I got from J&P about two years ago. (I got six but lost one.) It is really the sweetest little thing but I have never really given it a chance to show itself off. They arrived at an inopportune time and I had to put them up in pots, then in the ground, decided it was the wrong place and moved them, still not satisfied and kept cutting them back because they got gangly. This year they really tried ... (see photo) but I'm still not satisfied with their location. They have a real good reputation from others who have them. I now have a nice bed picked out in a sunny spot where I think they will really thrive. We shall see. They certainly are hardy and can take any abuse I have heaped upon them in my novice bungling ... and there's been a lot of that going on. This photo is when they were in a bed that just got too much shade. They definitely like sun better.
I'm looking forward to some of those cancuns I planted. Could be days now and blooms:)
I don't have any real perennials to show(or older than a year), but expect my new hosta garden to look sharp in a few months..only time will tell. Climbing hydrangea in the background blooming. I love that plant...hope it grows better than many opinions I hear. That's also a newbie I got from Wilkerson Gardens.
and the bee balms and white yarrow are fighting for space with some clematis purpurea and mallow Zebrina
kd - so impressed with your blooming climbing hydrangea. I will show mine the picture in hopes that it kick-starts it!
