Green Thumb Sunday

Green Thumb Sunday


I got a chance to go out and take some pictures of what is currently in bloom-

butterfly weed Butterfly weed

hydrangea  My hydrangea finally bloomed because I didn’t cut it back.  It is loaded with blooms. 

joe pye weed  Joe Pye Weed not quite in bloom yet

croscomia  Croscomia- not a great picture.  This was from a cheap bag of summer blooming bulbs I bought at Big Lots.  It didn’t bloom the first year and I actually thought it was a Bearded iris.  The second year though it began to shine.  It has red flowers that the hummingbirds love.  Surprisely, it survives through the winter even though it is suppose to only be winter-hardy to zone 5 and I live in zone 6.  It must be in a little bit warmer spot.

(This was suppose to post yesterday, but for some reason it didn’t.  Hope you enjoy it a day late!) 

Well, so far I have not been able to get into the gardening groove this summer.  Working 2 jobs does not help.  Luckily some plants are tough and seem to bloom no matter what.  Here is some of what is blooming now

Clematis  My purple clematis

Pink Daylily  These are some of my Ebay Suprise daylilies.  The surprise is not knowing what color they would be!

Red Daylily

Sweet Peas  The Sweet Peas are great as they come back gung ho every year.

Yucca  After a few years off from flowering ( I think I gave it a good shock when I removed some of the plant to give away) our one yucca has decided to bloom.
