Bloomin' Tuesday!

Please go to Jean's site to follow other's Blooming Tuesday's pics! What a wonderful way to show everyone what blooms in your neck of the woods!

Yesterday I actually had some time to take pictures of all that was blooming around my gardens. I'm enjoying getting to know the ins and outs of my camera (after a year and half of owning it, mind you!) I sure wish I had my camera when I visited my dad's gardens yesterday. All I had was my cell phone, and it just didn't do them justice!!

Hope you enjoy! Remember that you can click on the picture for a larger image!

A rare treat every year, my Mr. Lincoln rose. Not quite blooming, but always a site to behold either way.

'Rondo' Penstemon. I just added this one to my gardens. I am a huge fan of all things penstemon and keep adding to my collection every year.

Rocky Mountain Penstemon

This little bugger was so hard to catch, but he was filled with pollen, and he just LOVES my Zebrina Mallow!

I personally want to thank Lauren Springer for having me stumble upon this gem. Knautia. I absolutely love it when it's in full bloom.

Heather, your flowers are lovely. I haven't planted penstemon, but will look for it now that I've seen yours. So pretty and the spikes will add great interest to the beds. ~~Rhonda

Darla, thank you! I love this early blooming daisy with the rose, too!
Suzanne - Great to see another Coloradoan posting blogs. I'm having a hard time finding them. Thanks for the compliment!
Paula - I'm lucky enough to work at a nursery to try out a whole bunch of colors. Thank you very much!
Jean - No, thank YOU! What a great idea you had!! I'll try to be a part of it each week. It's fun!
