Happy Thursday!!

Click to see blooming flowers from 2014 or blooming flowers from 2013.

Lysimachia clethroides ~ Gooseneck loosestrife

See the goose?!?

Really beautiful in bloom, along with russet foliage in fall, however can be quite invasive near moist soils.


Monarda ‘Petite Delight’ – Dwarf Beebalm, Bergamot


Echinacea ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ ~ Coneflower

This is in my yard. We’ll have to see the other colors that pop up. it is supposed to be a ‘true mix’ of seeds that produce many colors of flowers.


Physostegia virginiana ‘Miss Manners’ ~ Obedient plant or False dragonhead.

The name obedient plant comes from the fact that you can move the flowers of the bloom up/down/sideways and they will stay there. Pretty cool!!


Carduus nutans ~ musk thistle nodding thistle


Campanula carpatica ‘Blue Clips’ ~ Carpathian Harebells


Monarsa didyma ‘Cranberry Lace’ ~ Beebalm, Bergamot


Achillea ‘Anthea’ ~ Yarrow


Coreopsis grandifolia ‘Sunray’ ~ Tickseed

  1. Love the bee in that last picture – and that dragonplant one is so cool!

    Also, we put an offer on a house. Hopefully soon I’ll have a garden again (it’s over an acre of land, with a pond, river and plenty of beds already planted – so a veritable wonderland of chances to plant things!). Now, fingers crossed, everything will go through and we’ll be moved in by fall!


  2. Great looking pics here. I like the bee balm and coreopsis. The obedient plant has not been obedient for me since it tried to take over a good 4×4 ft area of my little butterfly patch. I had to get my helper to dig and dig and there are still little plants coming up. It can be very invasive in some conditions and I gave away (with a warning) a bunch of plants that were dug up. The rest went into to the garbage can. It was pretty but it was trying to choke out other plants that were needed for the butterflies.
