What's Blooming This Week


The garden has just exploded this week after all the rain. It's been cool up to now and some things have been delayed. I'm having trouble keeping up with what's blooming this week. I started this on the weekend and by today three more things have started blooming. These are the daylilies, the Japanese painted daisy, the Siberian daisy and the perennial Geranium. The Siberian daisy has the oddest, almost unpleasant smell, not one you would associate with flowers at all. I'm having a hard time being very close to those daisies, but the bees sure seem to like them. They get so loaded down with pollen that they fly rather drunkenly around in almost slow motion.

Great composition and balance. I like how the white flower breaks out of the grid.

Love the comp. Especially the way you have that one daisy reaching into the center. Keeps the eye moving around. Beautiful colors! I know what you mean about all the blooming. It's happening here, too.
