Verbascum,Dianthus,Gomphrena, Geraniums, and More

I found a website that I can upload photos and design my own photo book.  It’s in the back of my mind for several months now. I wanted to pull all of my favorite photos of flowers and put in a book. It’s too hard to look at my blog for the past three years. I need a hard copy in this digital age. I’m thinking I need several volumes of it or just one gigantic volume. It will be an extensive project for sure.

For today, I will share some flowers in bloom this week.


Verbascum takes two years to flower so be patient.  They said that these flowers re-seed but so far I have not found to be the case. Flowers are amazing.  Last year my “Artic Summer” bloomed and it was spectacular!

GOMPHRENA “Fireworks”


These pink mini roses looking geraniums are the “Patricia” variety. They start off in white with pink centers and as they age or open fully, they turned to a beautiful lavender-pink color like the picture below. SO BEAUTIFUL!!!








A few days ago I got a gift card to spend at a local garden center for my birthday. Remember I said I wanted to be mindful of my selections and I found the best of what I wanted. These kangaroo paws are HIGHLY UNUSUAL, I’ve never seen anything like it. I bought a red one and a purple.

Along with the Kangaroo Paws, I also got two small azaleas in the most coveted colors…pink and purple…ah, favorite colors of mine.

That’s all I have now. I hope you have a great rest of the week. The weekend will come soon enough.
