Bloomin' Tuesday

After a week of almost daily rains,
I have been one happy camper and
the garden seems to share that feeling.

I'm grateful that I had the rain to listen to
while recuperating.
I can't think of anything more healing.

Glad to be sharing this beautiful bloomin' tuesday with y'all.
Blessed be your gardens.


  1. You have many plants I'm not familiar with; the native butterfly vine sounds interesting.
    The pitter patter of rain does have a therapeutic quality to it, doesn't it? Hope you are feeling better.

  2. Looks like a bad invasive, Old World Climbing Fern is your mystery vine. UhOh. If so. Kill it while you can.

  3. Beautiful blooms, Daisy. I can't believe how "loaded" your lemon tree is. How nice!

  4. Just caught up on reading some back posts...so sorry you needed recuperation time. Hope that "hard head" is healing well. (Lame joke, I know.) Being able to look out upon that beautiful, rain-soaked garden must have been a blessing.

  5. Daisy, You have such beautiful yellows in your garden. I love the lantana! Hope you feel better soon.

  6. Daisy your garden is a riot of colour....... agree that everything perks up after a good rain, hopefully you too.

  7. Very pretty indeed. The unidentified vine is most interesting. Continue to feel better!

  8. Hi Daisy,

    I very much enjoyed my tour of your gardens with the yellow blossoms. I tried to grown butterfly weed and it did well for a few years, but then I'm not sure what happened. Your zinnias are so colorful. Beautiful photos.

  9. Daisy,

    I love all of the wonderful things that you have blooming in your garden. I particularly like the yellow blooms and your zinnias. It is too early here for them, but there is still time for me to plant them.

  14. Beautiful blooms and great photos. I enjoy visiting gardens in other parts of the country. We have had a lot of rain here and are waitig for the sun to warm us and dry us out a little. I do love the sound of raing though.

  15. Jean-How kind of you to say. Wish you could come for a visit!
