Bloomin' Tuesday

Yea! Bloomin' Tuesday already. Here are some pictures of my latest addition to my garden, and one of my favorite additions so far! Freesia! I love the way it smells. I just stand there and look at my garden and that wonderful aroma just finds it's way to me! I can't believe it took me this long to get some for my garden!
My Hydrangeas are starting to blossom and when I saw this I thought of little girls in white and blue dresses with ribbons and eyelet lace. Don't ask me why I thought of that, but that was the first thing that came to mind when I was checking out my garden.
And then there are those busy little bees that contribute so much to the beauty around the house that just don't get enough credit. This guy was almost posing for me!

This one the Humming birds just can't stay away from!






One of my Gerber Daisies. I have six different colors but this is the one that is really going off right now, the others are getting ready.


And here is a shot where you can see most of the plants in my front garden.





And as always, go visit Ms. Jean for more shots of blossoms from around the country!

i can't believe that they ALL come from your garden! you must have a really impressive green thumb. and i love that you live somewhere that would let you grow all those beautiful flowers.

the desert here where i live is NOT as forgiving!

How I wish freesia grew in Colorado! I would have it in every nook and cranny! Love the fragrance, but I also love the beautiful colors. Your garden is amazing -- so vibrant with rich, beautiful colors! Love it!

You have lots of great flowers this week. I always try to buy a container of Freesia in the spring and put it near my bedroom windows, which I can leave open that time of year. It has the most magnificent smell--probably one of my favorite scents. I wish they made a cologne that came close.

I don't have any freesia. May have to try that. All the colors are so intense. Love it! Also love the foxglove shot. Amazing! Thanks for sharing this week! Jean
