As always, they are blooming their heads off.

That is a white azalea to the right, and you can see the top of my new umbrella trellis also to the right.

Do you know what kind this is, Kay? I have Daisy blooming now but the large ones are not quite yet popping.
I can just smell your photo, it looks fantastic!

That's beautiful! Mine are almost done. They're full of not so pretty brown flowers now. What's growing on the umbrella trellis? Do you have more pics of that?

RE: Wanna See the Gardinias?

Girlgroupgir, Sorry, DH picked those up to add greenerey around the then pond. They were Lowe's specials. They usually give me a few blooms every week until the first freeze...sometimes only one or two blooms during a week, sometimes four or five. My other Big bush is very different from these. The flowers are larger, and it is budded, but not ready to bloom yet. I woould like to have one of the bushes that has the really large blooms, but may never buy it.

I have a pink rose there, but it isn't to the top yet. I bought it from J&P and sprayed it green. They had three sizes when I bought mine. I should have gotten a shorter one.

I do, I do wanna see the Gardinias! Very pretty and that is a nice sized shrub. Wish we could smell the scent as well as see the picture. But they are very pretty.

Dang, and I was pround of my 5 or 6 blooms. One of my favorites. Right up there with hydrangeas.
