Garden photos from this evening

I told you there was one cherry on my Black Tartarian. Here it is: photographic proof. I am assuming, of course, that the birds will get this one cherry. They do not call the cherry tree Prunus avium for nothing.

Magenta calibrachoa (million bells) with white petunias.

Look at how swiftly we have gone from two iris blooms to many! I am amazed.

Lemon Zest petunias (detail)

Blanket flower (gaillardia, detail)

John F Kennedy rose

I thought y'all might enjoy these.

These are fantastic! I can't decide which one I like best. Maybe the lemon zest petunias. But, every one is beautiful. I am so glad you're out there tilling and keeping the earth... first commandment, you know. That makes it the most important. GO PAUL. And sit back and enjoy all you've helped create.

Paul said...

Thanks, Lindy. I get incredible pleasure from it.

What a wonderful feast for the spirit- thank-you Paul.

Iris are a personal favorite here, and the pale blue in your garden is wondrous.

Thank-you Paul

Ummmm..... about that cherry.... are you sure it is not called prunus erectiosus...?

I like the Lone Cherry.
When we were in California last year I couldn't believe all the cherry dem; plenty cherry all into July, mon.

Fresh cherrys are very expensive here as they are imported either from Chile or California.

Paul said...

Naughty, Margaret, very, very naughty.

It is rather proud, isn't it?

The Bing cherry that was supposed to cross-fertilize with the Black Tartarian did not make it, so I have assumed I will never see cherries. Until I get another Bing.

Most beautiful!

Since my thumb is the opposite of green, I will have to access your garden on-line to make up for the one I don't have. It is a wonder to behold.

Boocat, I hope flower photos bring joy and delight to others. That is why I post them.
