Wordless Post -- Flowers Blooming In My Garden

Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog know that I usually write long blog posts. Pictures worth thousand words. So, I will just present these beauties without much description or details. I will only mention their names and few tid-bits now and then. I'm joining in the memes hosted by Nature Notes hosted by Rambling WoodsSt Germain's and Today's Flowers meme.

Triteleia Queen Fabiola

Bearded Iris


Small Allium -- A. oreophilum, moly, neapolitanum

Rose with a mild fragrance


Native Virginia Rose -- it has a mind-blowing fragrance, and the plant spreads. A tiny plant can easily spread to three-four feet or more and the whole plant gets covered with these open-blooming intoxicatingly fragrant flowers. Bees and butterflies love them.

More roses but not native. It flowers through-out the late-spring to till frost. 

Big Tall Allium Flowers

This is in one of my neighbor's lawn -- a collection of dandelion. I love Dandelion flowers and thus could not help but take a picture and post it

This combination happened without any thoughts. There were not much space left and thus I put the roses and the catmint side by side, last year. This year I'm finding the blue catmint flowers and the peachy/pink/yellowish rose flowers a phenomenal combination. Together they are looking so gorgeous though I could not capture it in picture

More roses

Chrysanthemum Matchstick

White Allium Flower


Mushrooms are my another favorite thing. Isn't the orange lines on their head beautiful? 

More mushrooms

Primroses still blooming in the shade

Firecracker Flowers

Some kind of Gaillardia flower

This is either Lobelia or Delphinium (forgotten which one) flower that's coming into bloom. 

Veronica flowers coming into bloom


A very lonely scabiosa. I hope the plant gets more flowers soon.
