What's Blooming

Since my front garden is much sunnier than my back garden, that's where I have most of my flowers. Here is a view of the front border; carnations, bellflowers, roses, valerian.

In the shady beds by the house I have peonies.

Here is another rose by the sidewalk. Its name is Passionate Kisses. Isn't it a beauty?

I also have lots of bell flowers.

And today I discovered the first fuchsias.

One of my favorite things about gardening is scented flowers. I try to have something scented blooming all year round. My May-June scented plant is Star Jasmine. We have a long wall of it along the driveway and it perfumes the whole garden here Amongst The Oaks.

They are all delightful. My favorite is the jasmine. I had that before we moved here, and it is heavenly.

I always try to pick out flowers with a lovely fragrance, too.
