Blooming in My Garden

Anemone Bud

I love the buds on the Anemone hupehensis ‘Prince Henry’ because they are fuzzy. I can't wait for the pink flowers.

Tagetes erecta 'Sunset Giants mix'

I've never been a big fan of marigolds. These were billed as heirloom by Burpee although no introduction date was provided to back up that claim. But who could resist a description that included mention of Gertrude Jekyll and her preference for drifts of tall marigolds in the middle or back of her borders? I have been very pleased with these and will be planting them again.

Rose Hip

The multitude of blossoms on my Seven Sisters rose have been replaced by a multitude of rose hips. Surprisingly, to date, nothing has been snacking on them.

Zinnia elegans 'Scarlet King'

Never a fan of marigolds, I might reconsider after this post. I am so enjoying your journey ;)

Joey, I really liked these. The blossoms are ruffly and colors glow.
