Beautiful blooms. We have a lot of the same plants in our gardens - but I see a few in yours that I don't have. I may have to try them next year!

Susan said...

The colours are lovely - if only my garden looked as good!

Me said...

A gazillion flowers! :)

Beautiful flowers and excellent photographs! Re your comment on swans, I didn't realise they weren't common in your part of the world. We can see swans at our local park, at the local nature reserve, on the River Tyne, on various lakes and ponds. They're so graceful on the water, but their feet are SO large and clumsy looking when they walk on the ground!

A gazillion flowers, now there is a goal to work toward :).

Swans are not common in this area, the mute swan is on the endangered list, the Department of Natural Resources is releasing pairs here and there throughout the state, hopefully someday they will be more common.

Kris, I have noticed we have a lot of the same flowers and isn't wonderful there are always new ones to try :).

Susan your knitting is beautiful.

A assortment of dazzling colors, Stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Sally said...

Wow! Great photos Jenny! Speaking of swans, the pair at the Grotto just hatched 5 babies the day before yesterday. It's such fun watching the cygnets grow especially knowing they'll be released in the wild next fall to help repopulate Iowa's swan population.

What beautiful flowers AND beautiful pictures!

I have never seen a seven-sisters rose. That would be cool to have - my mother is (was) one of seven sisters - she is the last of the family (at 87). It would be cool to have one of those planted her in her honor. Where could I find one and what exactly do they look like?

Blessings

What a beautiful collection of flowers - the Rudbeckias are breathtaking! This time of year is so wonderful in the garden with flowers of every colour breaking out into bloom!

Connie, Seven Sisters Rose bush is an old time rose bush that throws very long thorny canes and will grow where ever it touches the ground. The flower is a cluster of seven smaller blooms, which is where the name comes from. It is in bloom now, it only blooms once a year.

Nicole said...

All very lovely. Love the white hibiscus type one and the orange trumpets.

Gardenwife said...

Wowee, beautiful shots! If you're ever of a mind to share some seeds from that pink trumpet vine, I'd be glad to send you postage or something in trade. :)

Iowa Gardening Woman said...

Gardenwife, you can have all the seeds you want for free :). If you lived closer I would give you a plant or ten, they sprout up every where!
