What's blooming


The weather is lovely here in middle TN. and my daughters and I enjoyed spending time outside yesterday afternoon.

 Instead of digging or pruning, or ugh! weeding yesterday, I just evaluated and enjoyed my blooms.

 In gardening as in most things in life, we should stop and take in where we are right in the moment.

As my children laughed and ran and played all around me,  I made mental notes of my progress and work still to do.



Like:



What should I do about my Clematis reaching the top of the Trellis already?


What's eating on my Hosta?


Why didn't I stake my Peonies before blooming?


The Rose that will not die has rewarded me, but I'm gonna need hubby's help to trellis it.


Cutting back my shade Coleus in fall was a good idea.


Plant more Viola's. They are so pretty and dainty.


Research this white Rose that everybody thinks is a Gardenia upon 1st look.



Do you enjoy gardening? If so, I'd love to know what's blooming in your garden right now.

Great idea...I'm going to photograph my yard blooming as soon as the 'eternal rain' ends. We have rhodedendrons, Mt. Fuji flowering cherry tree, camelia bush, etc.

Bring on the sun!

Hi Donna,

I pray you and that whole region of the US gets some sun soon!
Please share your flower pics when you can, I'd love to see them!

Hi Pepper,

A condo would make it tricky to garden, but maybe you could try your hand at container gardening.

Thanks for visiting, I'll stop by your site soon!

Hi Deepika,

Thanks for stopping by . I appreciate your supportive comments and will visit your blog soon.
In the mean time, stop off at a local nursery and buy yourself an herb or pretty blooming plant for your kitchen, it will make you smile everytime you see it!

Thank you for the compliment and yes I have been planning and dreaming of spring and what blooms I will be adding. My daughters enjoy gardening with me and they want bright, sunshiny colors added this year.
