What's Growing Friday . . .

Okay, yes, I made that up--as far as I know,
there is no official "What's Growing Friday."
But if you leave me a comment, I'd be delighted to
stop by and see what's growing in your yard (or
art room, or sewing room, or kitchen!)

Here are some of the things growing in our yard
right now--at least what has survived the storm beat
down of the past few days. It was clear yesterday,
for part of the day, anyway, and I got a few pictures
in while enjoying the sun.


This patch of iris is thriving--the burgundy ones
were already bloomed out, and the yellows and
variegated ones got hit hard by the storms, but
these guys are hanging in there.


The wild rose is blooming, and has been for a while
now--the bushes are full and fragrant, scenting our
walking "trail."


The rhododendron was really blown around, and there
are only a few blooms left at this point--but the bush
was beautiful this year, really full of flowers!


The Black Medic is starting to cover the ground in
areas--cheerful little yellow blooms, and, if you
are so inclined, you can gather the tiny black
seeds they produce and grind them into a flour.


The daisies and clover are just starting to bloom,


and yes, unfortunately, there are rainclouds growing
today, too . . .

*sigh*

Wishing you a sunny weekend, wherever you are!
Oh, look at this--trying out the link thing!
C'mon, humor me, leave a link? ;)



Okay, maybe not as much fun as June's Fun Friday,
but I'm just playing around with this new linky
toy!

Great pictures Trish, looks like you have some great colours in your garden. We have had heavy rain in the UK this week too and some amazing cloud formations.
Enjoy your weekend.

You have a beautiful garden-I love flowers but alas no time to tend them. I've been able to comment, but my followers pics have disappeared, hope they return. The 21st Century is sometimes not all it's cracked up to be ;-)

Okay, this may not have been such a great idea--we're redoing our garden bed this year, and I'm not planting veggies, so seeing all your wonderful plants is making me a lil' bit jealous!!!

I have not taken any garden pics yet, we have had so much rain and hopefully the sun will start doing its job soon. We even had hail today. I had been out doing some of my container planting and Larry came to tell me that there were tornado and hail warnings for our area. I finished planting the last of 2 dozen tomato plants, as well as my celery and Italian Parsley, but figured it was time to get in the house. Tomorrow is another day. Sure enough, half hour after getting in the hail came...but fortunately nothing was damaged. I have loads of garden photos from past seasons so will pop the odd pic on my blog...I have a lot of perennials so each year they come up almost the same as the last season...bonus. Hugs, Gayle.
