End of the Month View, May 30-31, 2017

Our World Tuesday and End of the Month View

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 29, 2017
I rescued this Milkweed (Butterfly Weed) from the side of the road just ahead of the highway department mowing machines a few years ago. I am so glad it is happy growing in my garden.

This Coneflower 'Pow Wow Wild Berry' is a recent purchase. Since it is a perennial I am hoping to enjoy its blooms for many years to come.

Another recent purchase, 'Dolly Parton,' is a white Rose I rescued from the 'dead and dying' shelves at TSC (Tractor Supply Company). I was not sure it was going to live, but over the week-end I noticed new growth - Hurrah!

Rhoeo 'Stripe Me Pink' is a small ground cover type of plant. (Yes, another recent purchase!)
I set it out close to my Hostas.

The Hydrangeas are beginning to bloom. A strong rainstorm Saturday bent the stems over.

And the Day Lilies are blooming!

Happy Gardening!

  1. We are already seeing butterflies here, but hardly any flowers are blooming. My grandson got quite a kick out of seeing a butterfly land on his Dad's shoulder.

  2. Lovely shot of the butterfly.

  3. ...were does the time go.

  4. Hello, beautiful blooms. The milkweed is lovely, beautiful butterfly. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

  5. WOW!No words to brief the beauty of the flowers and plants:)

  6. Lovely floral macro shots and love that beautiful butterfly ~ thanks,

    Happy week to you ~ ^_^

  7. It's wonderful to see the summer flowers coming along!

  8. Well I just left a comment and was told by blogger something was wrong and try again. I can never remember what all I said. I do like to buy for the 'dead and dying' shelves---sometimes a challenge but happily some finds do great.

  9. Nice garden photos, like the recycling of the car tyre as a flowerpot


I enjoy your comments!
