This Morning Around The Garden..

Look how the Muppet has grown. I wish this guy would have lit on a pretty flower instead of the nasty trash can.
This Hibiscus has been in the same container for three years. I have about 5 more of these throughout my gardens started from seed off of this plant. I have been waiting for one of them to finally open.
It makes the biggest flowers!


Mezoo is finally spreading.
Containers from my Tipsy Planter





Cleome is about 3 feet tall.

Joseph's Coat Rose
Ahhh, a Balloon Flower.

That first flower is so cool and so is that huge hibiscus! Just facinating! Such a pretty butterfly too - figures he landed on the darn garbage can. He sure is pretty, just like your gardens :-)

Tipsy planter looks outstanding!

Dorothy said...

Wonderful shots of your pretty flowers! What's with that first picture, the black-eyed Susan? It looks like a flower being strangled by something growing around it!

I laugh every time I see the sunflower. It is just so weird. Your hibiscus bloom is a giant. Like the red Lord Baltimore hibiscus.Your tipsy pots are filling in so pretty.

I finally found some cleome starts. I forgot how much they smell like onions, at these ones do.

Your container plantings are really looking good Darla. That 'Muppet' sunflower is odd but interesting at the same time. ;)

That muppet flower is so unusual and pretty! (Inspired from the Muppet show perhaps? LOL!)

George said...

You have a beautiful garden. The hibiscus blossoms are huge (and beautiful)!

That white hibiscus is pretty. I'm waiting for mine to bloom. Mine's gonna be deep bright orange. Pity that hibiscus flower only last a day ...

Darla: Your flowers are always so beautiful. Is that first flower supposed to look that way. It is so unusual?

Dani said...

catmint said...

Hi Darla, great photos, everything is blooming beautifully. My favourites are the cleomes - I love the spidery shape, the drops of water on the balloon flower and the wonderful dark butterfly.

Gardeness said...

So many lovely blooms happening in your garden. I really like the balloon flower, and that cool looking muppet flower! Is it a sunflower gone wild?
