IT'S BLOOMING TUESDAY



Today is Blooming Tuesday over at Jean's MsGreen"thumb"Jean ,




I am going to show a few new things I have put in the ground ,they are mostly ground covers that I picked out with nice color when they are in bloom. This is a Shasta Daisy that I planted last year that has started emerging from the earth,can not wait to see it in bloom on its second year.


My little narssius that has finally gotten a few blooms on it.I was beginning to think it was not going to bloom this year.



Now my new ground covers,this is called Fuldaglut Sedum.It has a bronze-red foliage,grows 2 to 4 " high.It's hardiness is to -40 degrees.




This little plant is called creeping phlox this one does not have many blooms on it and they are purple although they look white here.





Also creeping Phlox,a dark pink color.They grow about 6" high with a spread of around 5'.They like direct sun light and bloom in the Spring Attracts butterflies and are fast growing.This is also true for the purple one above.






This is one of my favorite flowers in my yard.It never dies and is beautiful all year long.My old rusty Sunflower.It is planted beside my front door steps.









The next few pictures are of my seedlings.Some are already coming up ,others are not quite ready to show themselves yet.I am trying to bring Spring on just as quickly as I possibly can.I have lavender,purple cone flower,red maidens,hibiscus,columbine,coreopsis,Russian sage,loofa gourds,moon flowers,and a few others growing here in all these little pots.



























For more wonderful Blooming Tuesday post please go by and visit Jean,you will see some wonderful Spring flowers to brighten your days while you are waiting on Spring to arrive.

I love creeping phlox! They are so beautiful in the spring. Good for you for starting plants from seed. I'm not very good at that. I can't wait for everything to bloom! Jean

Sounds like you are a pretty serious gardener. Since we don't have much of a winter here we don't look forward to Spring as much as those in other parts of the country do. In fact, when spring comes it means summer is just around the corner and then it will be hot hot hot.
