Bloomin' Tuesday

Coneflowers are in bloom here in the Northeast.
This is my first year to grow these.

Blackeyed Susans is one of my favorites

Here is my herb garden. I keep it by my back door so it is ready to use.

Last year I planted this Rosemary bush. I love the fragrance. It is doing so good.
They say the smell of this keeps away bugs and mosquitoes.

This is strange. I planted these Mory Glory seeds in the spring.
I have enjoyed these all summer. Don't you think they are a pretty color.
When I got up this morning to go take my morning look at them,

LOOK what I found. One that is totally different than all the others.
Different in color and 3x's in size.
It is beautiful, don't you think. I just love surprises.

Have a great day. Go over to Jeans to see more gardeners

Clever idea, putting your herbs next to the kitchen door!
Somehow,a different morning glory seed got mixed in your packet!!!
The last one is the one I grew this year.

What a fun post! I usually have an herb garden just outside my back door too. It's so great to be able to go outside and pick the fresh herbs, isn't it. They make everything taste better! Love the Morning Glories -- so beautiful and deep colored. What a fun surprise with the light blue one!

Very good idea about your herbs by the door, makes it easier when you need them for cooking. I love Coneflowers & Blackeyed Susans. Yours look great and Morning Glories are always a pretty addition to the garden. Happy Bloomin Tuesday!

Hi linda, I like your herb garden next to your back door. This way you can keep a better eye on it from critters and snails!
I like your coneflowers and black-eyed Susans, here in Southern California you don't see to much of them around, I buy them at the store but they only bloom that year they never come back! I don't know why! Your morning glory is pretty, very pretty blue! Thanks for sharing whats blooming in your garden!
Love, Ann
