Blooming Friday is hosted by Katarina at Roses and Stuff. Check it out to see what's blooming other places or to see how to add your blooms. If you scroll down, you'll see my SkyWatch post.
Rio Rose Purslane, Sweet Dreams Tickseed, dahlia from a mix, Orange Perfection Phlox, an aster, I think, and the lovely Black Knight Butterfly Bush:
The celosias from the seeds my neighbor gave me are finally growing and I love the blooms! Harvest Moon Coneflowers are continuing to bloom, and I recently added this Ruby Tuesday Helenium that I need to cut back as soon as it finishes blooming. The photo on the bottom left shows a bit of a different helenium with the giant larkspur I started from seed. I am pleased it is still blooming. There is a small glimpse of pink snapdragons that are doing well, as I keep deadheading them. The last photo shows the white coneflowers that I moved from the front of the house when we put the bed in last year, and the flowers are no longer white, growing next to the Kim's Knee High I planted last year. In between them are a small white volunteer cosmos, a tall zinnia you can't see the top of, and in the background are a foxglove that is almost finished blooming, and some tall iris.
I planted several delphiniums last year, and 2 came back. This one is on its second flush of blooms. The other is struggling right now. Next are Butterfly Red Starflower (pentas), Landmark citris (I think) lantana, and a perennial I need to come back and write when the name comes to my brain. (It's Friday, 6:11 p.m. and I was just looking at some photos in my iphoto library, and saw one of this last flower, and the name of it came back into my brain! It's gentian, but I don't remember its name. It's growing through a little basket, and I think it looks quite cute in it.)
The phlox is a passalong. I had to include a couple of the last to be finished day lilies, the Shopko Red, and the yellow one I rescued from being dug under. The liatris, Rough Blazing Star, I'm pretty sure, is one of my favorites. The last one is from Larry's trough planter, and may be an ice plant. It just opened today.
