In the garden today...

My favorite Sweet Pea this season, just so lovely and pink and large and the stems are long!
Here's the overall photo of the that sweet pea but there is a hollyhock right in front of it that I think needs to be moved.
Cute little short sweet pea! Funny that the viola's blend in with it! LOL

Just bought a Scabiosa love those they are always blooming and are good filler flowers for my little bouquets.We stuck a clipping of large Ice Plant that we used to have in our garden wayyyyy back when we lived in the desert before! We had given our friend Wendy some when we moved and she has given us some now that we've returned. If you take a look at the link of the old garden you'll see it was growing up the front of the yard and just beautiful we had left a lot of it behind but we've driven by recently and it's all dead...really sad.
Here between the Hollyhocks, you can barely see the tip of a Canna we just planted. Thought it would be perfect to be growing and blooming after the Hollyhocks finish up.
Here in the large pot in the shade is newly planted Lily of the Valley. I've never successfully grown them so this time in the pot they went so they could be babied and hopefully grow. I hope these aren't bad ones with the leggy white thing hanging out, don't have any experience with them so I'm not too sure about them, this is a test run, since it was about $5 for a pack of 8 we figured worth another shot right? It's just they are such a romantic flower that I'd really like to have some!
The early Hollyhock is still going strong, all the rest are just starting to grow to bloom.
Butterfly bush is starting to bush out!
Also we got another color of African Daisy an put it between the roses.
More Sweet Pea's
Mostly white with purple edges.
The Petunia's are growing larger and larger, the nice thing is it will probably make a nice cascade from the pot soon.
Our Salvia started blooming again...just love that red! Hummingbirds should be coming around soon!
The Guara is getting going and the Angelonia wintered over, not sure if it'll keep going though it's really an annual plant.
Here are more of Gerard's Babies!
