Several new blooms today, and some other garden shots that might be of interest. Avedon

First up is Julianna Lynn--brand new dl, planted Mar 29.

Photobucket

Bodacious Returns--a big flower on a short scape. I don't think this flower is registered, will have to check on that.

Photobucket

Jack Carpenter reject--the prettiest red that we grow.

Photobucket

Chance Encounter--third bloom. There were 2 blooms yesterday, but they did not open very well.


Photobucket

Jellyroll Truffle-just average until it doubles, maybe next time, I hope

Q. Big Red #2

This is a cross of 2 Jack Carpenter rejects. I think this one will be donated to next year's plant sale.

Photobucket

This is a mystery daylily. We don't know where this came from, or what it is. To me, it has the look of Chance Encounter. I am sure this one will be at the plant sale next year.

Favorite rose put out this pretty flower today.

Photobucket

Zinnias are starting to bloom.

Photobucket

Our zinnia patch looking good

The blue picture for today--our spiderwort

The blue salvia--just missed the hummingbird on this one.

Closing with Zeke hiding under the Chance Encounters ready to pounce on me.

Nice kitty! I just love the blue salvia and the zinnia patch both. I am a big fan of growing zinnias. Always grow some here. Beautiful daylilly blooms. My favorite is a tie between Julianna Lynn and Bodacious Returns. I just love them both.

Julianna Lynn is lovely. I'm glad you didn't reject the Jack Carpenter reject, that is a pretty red. Handsome Zeke!

I like your red 'reject' too and Julianna. If it set in that quick-next year it out to be a powerhouse!

Red reject is gorgeous, but Juliaana Lynn is the best of the bunch...even edges out Zeke by a whisker...ah no! another pun!

I swear, you guys all plant your zinnias closer together than the package says, and I think it helps. I need to stop reading the package!
