Every Blooming Thing...

Hello ladies... we had such a long, cold winter and wet, wet Spring of sorts, that my gardens are really just now beginning to take off... we are about a month behind our normal gardening weather, so here is what is blooming today... the last of my beautiful pink Bleeding Hearts... oooh, how I will miss them until they return next Spring... they have got to be one of my very favorite old~fashioned flowers of all... (yes, I guess I do say that about all of them!)... click on photos to enlarge for really beautiful blooms!...

My "Cupcake" miniature rose's first bloom...

"Miss Kim" Lilac...

"Oriental Poppie"...

"Red Prince" Weigela...

First of my Delphiniums... (this one is for you Grandma Delphine!)...

"Fireworks" Clematis still exploding in blooms...

"Jackmanii" Clematis will be bursting with gorgeous blooms any day now!...

Sunny red Yarrow...

A basket full of yellow Biden, purple Petunias and pink Million Bells...

Today I am joining Tracie at Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursdays... wishing you all a beautiful Summer's Day in your garden... xoxo...


  1. They all look lovely ! My gardens are now full of color and life, I love it ! Have a wonderful day !

  2. All of your blooms are have the green thumb, even if you had to wait 8 months to use it! I feel the same, we are about a month behind, too.

    I have been putting putting out my feelers on climbing roses...I'd like to start one. Any favorites?


  3. Everything's blooming so beautiful, Julie--and your photography is fabulous!

    I think bleeding hearts are just about my favorite spring bloomer--so nostalgic and sweet!

    Wishing you a beautiful day, my friend...

  16. I love your bleeding heart with the purple background flowers. I know what you mean about flowers being late because of weather. I am having the same issues.

  19. I love that weigelia! Really everything is just so beautiful.

  20. Beautiful blooms Julie Marie! I have a Miss Kim lilac too and love her. I love all kinds of flowers, but am very partial to bleeding hearts as well. They don't bloom for very long, but they sure put on a show when they do!

  21. All your flowers are so pretty! I love the red Yarrow, I think I need some for my yard.

  22. I always say that everything is my favorite too, and miss the spring bloomers when they are done too. You have a lot of beautiful spring flowers!

    I love your flowers so much, the bleeding hearts are so lovely and such and old fashioned flower that is timeless and brings back a lot of memories to me. I wait all year to see ours bloom in our garden. Your pictures have captured them so well. The color of your poppy is incredible, how I wish I could visit you in your day I hope!! :)
