More blooms in our yard

Here are a few more blooms from our yard. We plant all colors of flowers but have more pinks and purples than anything else.

These first flowers are Petchoa it is a new cross between the Petunia and the Calibrochoa. Since I love both of these flowers I wanted to try this one out this year.

This planter is one my hypertufa one in the backyard I had made a few years ago using a exercise ball for the mold. Normally I plant petunias in it. So far the container has held up okay but I have learned a few things about making these planters to try next time. A tree limb fell on my one in the front yard and broke it.

The second flower is the Rose of Sharon also known as Althea. I love althea and this week will be going to the garden center to find a few more colors of this colorful bush. This Althea was shared with me by a twig with rooting solution and it has grown like crazy ever since. These blooms remind me of the Hibiscus.

The third flower is one of my favorites the Knock our Roses. They bloom like crazy in the spring and summer and if you want them to bloom more they love left over tea grinds. We save all our tea grinds for our acid loving plants.

Blooms

This althea has the most beautiful shaped flowers.

We had a double ruffle lavender one time I loved but the ants got to the plant and killed it.

This white one was merely a stick someone shared with me. It is in front of the house on the corner under the shade of the largest oak tree.

Her beauty adds a bright spot to the shade like a light.
