Two New Blooms

For me each first bloom is exciting! This year it seems like I have waited longer than ever before for some of my flowers to bloom, but better late than never!

A Shasta Daisy, which is hardy to –20, in case you were wondering: August2010 146

And a Cosmo, which survived an indiscriminate weeder: August2010 148
I am still waiting for my gladiolas, Rose of Sharon, and mums…

To view gardens from around the country visit Bloomin’ Tuesday and Tuesday Garden Party.

These are two of my favorites and I don't have any in my yard right now, so it was a pleasure to look at yours!

Your cosmos is very pretty! I didn't plant any of those this year, we have the daisies doing well (since we get to -40 here)

I have a few indiscriminate weeders, too! And a few indiscriminate mowers as well! :)

These are so pretty :) No blooms stand a chance in my yard between the chickens and the deer. I'm going to have to fence in my pretty garden stuff, too and not just my veggies.
