Black Eyed Susan about to bloom!
Mr. Bumble Bee!
It is hunting season once again, so that means most of my weekends will be spent at the hunting camp. I usually find lots of goodies during hunting season....that is when I found all of those daffodils! I am really excited about them and can't wait for them to bloom. This will be their first time to bloom in their new home!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

So interesting to hear about daffodils blooming in January when we have many feet of snow on the ground in New England then. It's times like that when I miss living in the south. -Jackie

What a lovely post! Everything looks beautiful. Love the ginger. WHat exposure do they have? I have a few but they never bloom. I just love big Bumble Bees!! Great pic!

Stephanie said...

Jacobean flower is so cool... looks like a fountain. Love your blooms here DP. You enjoy your hunting weekend too!

Darla said...

Funny to see a Black-eyed Susan about to bloom!! Everything is still holding it's own in your gardens!!

Ginger said...

I have a few daffodils peeking through the soil, too. This weather is weird!

LOVE the pagoda plant!

When is the seed swap starting up?? Where is Bilbo??

Bonnie said...

Your roses are just gorgeous!

Nezzy said...

Oh Lord I have sinned. I covet these gorgeous flowers! I have cleaned about 2/3's of my flower beds of dead crispy remains. Do you ever go dormant there or can you grow year round? I don't think I could ever get Hubby to move off the Ponderosa. It's a family generational thing but if I could grow flowers year round..Whooo-hooo!

Have the best fall weekend and enjoy those beauties.

God Bless

You do still have a lot blooming! That Pagoda plant is really cool, I'm going to have to look into that one and see if it grows here.

I have just got to try Pentas again. Love the blooms. Wow, Glads in January. I am so jealous girl! ;-) What a pretty bright vine with the yellow flowers. I do not know what it is but it is pretty. The blooms remind you of daisies.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Rusty in Miami said...

Your garden looks great and I like your Halloween decorations

Kim and Victoria said...

Your blog looks so pretty with all the Halloween decor!
So odd to see bumble bees in your photos, while everything seems to be dying here.

Dirt Princess said...

Tootsie I should have some blooms for you year round! I will work on that for you!!!

Thoughtfully Blended Hearts the pagoda plant was a new one for me this year. A fellow garden club member shared a baby pagoda with me and it is spectacular. I just LOVE it! It is very easy to keep up.

Evelyn I have two Jacobean plants, they both came from my grandmother. It is so easy to root and is a great shade plant. They are known by several names: Justicia, Pine Burr Geranium, Flamingo Plant, etc

Jackie...I cannot wait for them to bloom! They are so beautiful! I spent many hours at our camp digging them up!

Dragonfly Treasure, the butterfly ginger gets FULL sun! They love th sun! They smell heavenly. Sign up for the seed swap becuase I am going to swap some of them!

Stephanie isn't the jacobean neat looking!

Darla you know that you can't ever tell around here what will bloom when...they have their own minds! I think the fall confuses them!

Ginger I am going to try to get the seed swap post up tomorrow! I have lots of goodies to share. Bilbo is at Briana's place in Arizona and will be popping up any day now!

Bonnie thanks. I have never tried roses. I had just gotten a few cuttings from people and really had no where to put them, so I made "rose" garden. I just leave them be and they do their thing!

Nezzy we have a 10 month growing the book, but really we can garden year round.

Catherine I am going to try to steal some seedling og the pagoda from fellow gardeners for the seed swap :-)

HHG this was my first year with pentas. I do love them!

Rusty thank you very much! Hope all is well with you...we have survived hurricane season!

K&V everything is still green here. I have butterflies and bees everywhere, and I am still seeing a few hummers flying around!

Urban Green said...

Brilliant pictures. Your blooms are lovely. Loved them.

Sue said...

Wow, our seasons sure are different! You have some lovely blooms there!

Briana said...

As it's getting cold here it's nice to see your garden coming to life. Neat daffodils. Love the white and yellow one.
